Assigning purpose to your days is a powerful way to live a more productive and fulfilling life. When you have a clear direction and a tangible outcome to focus on, it becomes easier to channel your energy and resources effectively. 1 Timothy 4:15 (ESV) says, “practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress.” Immersion in your tasks is required to unlock higher levels of breakthrough. Your creative and spiritual gifts must be fanned into flames. So, let us take inspiration from spiritual giants who recognise the importance of immersing oneself in specific activities.
Moses ascended the mountain, leaving his people below, and for 40 days, he communed with the divine. In solitude, he received wisdom and commandments etched upon stone tablets, returning as a leader transformed, ready to guide his people on their journey. Consider a 40-day immersion season, as Moses did. After you make the decision to immerse yourself and practise matters of your life and destiny, your progress and profit will become visible. If you read stories about great men, you will notice how they withdraw from society for a time to develop themselves. Clear out your schedule, and focus for 40 days. Just like Moses.
First, determine the goal you want to achieve and be clear about the specific outcome you desire. Once you have that clarity, it’s time to focus. Dedicate your full attention and effort to your goals, avoiding any distractions that may derail you. Maintain your concentration for a continuous period of 40 days. Commit to taking specific actions every day that directly contribute to your goal. Remember that time plays a vital role in your success. If you can devote eight hours every day to the things that align with your purpose and calling, you’ll achieve more compared to someone who only spends an hour or two sporadically. Immerse yourself.
