Some people attend big Christian events for the sake of tradition, while some others attend because certain people are coming there.
A crowd will often gather whenever there is an assembly where Jesus is present. If you attend such gatherings because of the crowd-just to belong or to show that you are current you may not receive your desired blessings. In Mark 5:24-34, a crowd gathered around Jesus Christ on His way to Jairus’ house.

For many of them, it was enough that they were in the crowd following Jesus, but right there in their midst, there was a woman who was not there because others were there; she was there because she so needed and desired to touch Jesus. She was determined in her heart that if only she could touch the hem of His clothes, she would receive her healing.
She touched it and she was healed. That is what a motivated mindset can do The Bible says she “came in the press behind”.
She did not mind if people trampled on her, and she did not mind the pushing and shoving of the crowd; her singular focus was that she just had to touch the hem of the Master’s garment, no matter what it would take. To
Moreover, another person who had a motivated mindset was Zerubbabel. Today’s Bible reading shows that when you have a focused mindset like Zerubbabel did, it will stir you up to take action.
A motivated mindset fills your heart with the conviction that you are overdue for a breakthrough thereby ushering you into your desired blessing. For instance, when the man who was paralysed from the neck downwards was brought to Jesus, it was not for flimsy reasons (Mark 2:1-12).
His friends felt he was overdue for a breakthrough, and so on their arrival, when the door was blocked off and there was no feasible way in through the
window, they created a way through the roof.
When you believe you are already overdue for a breakthrough, you will be compelled to take violent steps towards attaining your expectation.
Are you overdue for promotion, success, breakthrough, deliverance or prosperity? If you are, let your conviction on this drive you into your miracle. Such a belief has a way of motivating you to take actions that will trigger your blessing.
