If we are going to overcome the challenges that we face in this life, we must stay focused. If you are going to accomplish your goals, you must stay focused. In order to even enjoy the things that you currently have you must stay focused. Without focus you won’t get very far or acomplish very much.
When you are focused on something, it affects how you deal with the things that you aren’t focused on. Staying focused helps you to ignore those things that aren’t important. Think about it, you can’t focus on everything. And that’s okay. That’s why we must prioritize where our focus needs to be. Once you decide what you need to focus on, you then have to fight to keep it there.
Life is full of distractions & we all may be distracted by different things, but just know that as Christians we all have an enemy that works hard to keep us distracted. Satan comes to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10) and one of his tactics is distraction. Satan works to keep us distracted from God, from dealing with our sin, and from our current blessings. He knows the more we seek God and turn from our sin the more blessed our life will become (Psalm 37:3-5). Satan does not want us blessed.
We all have to remain humble and be wise enough to slow down and really pay attention to what’s going on in our lives. We can’t be distracted by worrying about others or be deceived to think that we have it all together. None of us do, and the moment we think so we must humble ourselves and refocus.
So, what are you focusing on? What are you giving energy to? What are you neglecting? Take some time today to ensure that your focus is where it shoud be. Once you get it there, be prepared to fight to keep it there.
