Another thing that will retard your ability to run the race and finish well is the lack of concentration or running half-minded with divided attention. Often this person is the one who becomes pre-occupied and ends up loosing their focus. Too many are like Peter who professed his allegiance to the Lord while he was in the boat, but after the Lord called him to walk with Him on the sea, Peter only walked a few steps before he took his eyes off the Lord and focused on his surroundings. His surroundings became more important to him than His Lord. He lost his concentration when he began to pay more attention to his opposition. His opposition became more important than his goal of walking with Jesus. Peter took his eyes off his Lord, became distracted and like a lot of us, Peter began to sink. We must recognize that God did not call us out to leave us midstream. Stay focused.
