Sometimes it is so easy to get caught up on everything that you need to complete in a day or week that your focus is more on those things and less on God. Ask yourself this – Is my focus on God or is it on something else? Are you so focused on today’s tasks that you forgot to ask for God’s help and guidance in completing them? Before you got caught up in your agenda for the day, did you neglect to ask the Lord what do you want me to do today or what needs my attention today? Life and all the things that come with it can make us so busy, but you must remember who God is and what His word says about where our focus should be. Remember when your focus is wrong, your actions to follow will be wrong also. You are reacting based on wrong thoughts instead of wisdom that only God can give you when your focus is on Him. Take a step back, remember to breathe, and look to God for whatever you need.
Colossians 3:2 And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.
Corinthians 4:18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Romans 8:5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
Heavenly Father, thank you for giving me wisdom, revelation and more understanding of you. Teach me how to continually keep my focus on you and your word. Help me to keep meditating on it day and night. Let my actions reflect the fruit your word is producing in my everyday life. When my focus is on the wrong thing, fix my eyes and attention back onto you. In Jesus Mighty Name I Pray, Amen!
