How to Develop Legendary Focus

How to Develop Legendary Focus

Kingdom Entrepreneurs need to learn to Focus like Nehemiah

If there’s one thing that many Entrepreneurs and Kingdom Expanders struggle with, it’s focus.


One man in the Scriptures had such strong Focus that he became known for it. That man is Nehemiah.


There are three reasons why Nehemiah had a focus of steel set on rebuilding the wall and he did it in RECORD TIME!


The book of Nehemiah is about reestablishing God’s people both physically and spiritually.


In this episode, we’ll focus on chapter 6 and consider how Nehemiah’s legendary focus got a city wall rebuilt, and a whole people back on the right track.


Are you ready, let’s dig deeper!


In This Episode You Will:


♦ Learn the three essential traits that Nehemiah possessed that helped him accomplish what seemed to be an impossible task.


♦ Observe how Nehemiah reacted to his enemies mockings and threats while he was laser focused on his mission.


♦ Find out the subtle ways the devil tries to derail you when you're trying to stay focused on your vision.


♦ Learn how to pray when you know the devil's trying to take you off course.


Memorable Quotes & Verses:


“When Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab, and the rest of our enemies heard that I had rebuilt the wall and that there were no more breaks in it—even though I hadn’t yet installed the gates— Sanballat and Geshem sent this message: “Come and meet with us at Kephirim in the valley of Ono.”

I knew they were scheming to hurt me so I sent messengers back with this: “I’m doing a great work; I can’t come down. Why should the work come to a standstill just so I can come down to see you?”

Four times they sent this message and four times I gave them my answer.”


(Nehemiah 6:1-4, 'The Message version' of The Bible)




“You can always make more money, but you can’t make more time.”

- Jim Rohn




We too have to deal with people trying to distract us from our work. Sometimes, like Nehemiah, the distractions can come from an enemy, or The Enemy. Other times, it can come from friends or family - which is more subtle and seductive.

-Sebastien Richard



“The wall was finished on the twenty-fifth day of Elul. It had taken fifty-two days. When all our enemies heard the news and all the surrounding nations saw it, our enemies totally lost their nerve. They knew that God was behind this work.”


Nehemiah 6: 15-16
