Focalize – to align your sight to a focal point (The Vision)


  • Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not to your understanding. In ALL your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path,
  • No man CAN SERVE TWO masters. A house DIVIDED will fall.
  • Where there is UNITY, there is STRENGTH.

Un-ambiguousno uncertainty or doubt as to the desired outcome (The Mission)

  • Have a made-up mind about: Don’t double minded, divisive, or subversive. Know:
  1. What we are doing?
  2. Why we are doing this?
  3. How we are doing this?
  4. When we are doing it?
  5. The benefits of our efforts

2 Samuel 7:1-6, 8-10, 12-16 (KJV)
1 And it came to pass, when the king sat in his house, and the Lord had given him rest round about from all his enemies; 
2 That the king said unto Nathan the prophet, See now, I dwell in an house of cedar, but the ark of God dwelleth within curtains. 
3 And Nathan said to the king, Go, do all that is in thine heart; for the Lord is with thee. 
4 And it came to pass that night, that the word of the Lord came unto Nathan, saying, 
5 Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith the Lord, Shalt thou build me an house for me to dwell in? 
6 Whereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle. 
………………………………………….
8 Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel: 
9 And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth. 
10 Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime. 
………………………………………….
12 And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. 
13 He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. 
14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: 
15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. 
16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.
