How is the best way to focus?

We like to think we can focus and sometimes we get close.We try hard. We want to be courageous. “We think we can.”

At the end of the day, it is God who keeps us focused on Him. No doubt about it. In an uncompromising way every day.

All praise and credit is His.

It was God who kept us focused on him, uncompromised. ~Apostle Paul (1 Corinthians 1:12)

“Don’t loiter and make small talk with everyone you meet along the way.” ~~Jesus

Jesus sends us on a mission. He has things He wants us to do for Him. We need to understand His urgency. In His new plan for us, He has places He wants us to go for Him. Taking time to stop along the way gets us out of synch with His mission for us.

Jesus demands we get moving and get to where He wants us to go. Nothing else is acceptable to Him.

 “Don’t loiter and make small talk with everyone you meet along the way.” ~~Jesus (Luke 10:4 The Message)

Are we focused on Jesus?

Are we focused on Jesus?

When Peter was, walking on the water, all was fine. When Peter took his eyes off Jesus, he started to sink.

Are we focused on Jesus?

“When you are brought face to face with a difficult situation and nothing happens externally, you can still know that freedom and release will be given because of your continued concentration on Jesus Christ.”

Being content with who we are in God is the only accomplishment that matters.

We live in a world where almost everyone is trying to make us something else. They have great things in mind for us. Dress like this and we will be successful. Change this in your life and you will be happy. Follow these 7 steps and you will improve your life.

Think about it. We are barraged all day long with list after list of things we must change and we will succeed. It is all hokum. It isn’t true but we are being seduced into believing it.

Jesus challenges us to focus on being who God wants us to be. That is all that matters.

Jesus challenges us to not think of success like others do. He knows it is about focus. “You can’t serve God and money” he says. He knows what he is talking about.

Jesus challenges us to focus on the central question: “What does God want me to do right now?” The one course to focus on is God.

What does it take to get my attention?

October 8, 2012 2 comments

What does it take to get my attention and to keep me focused? Hard to say some days. There are lots of distractions. Plenty of opportunities to miss God and what He is doing.

God’s life is not for the faint of heart. It is vigorous. It requires focus.  His Spirit is the power to make it happen.

The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires total attention. ~~Jesus (Matthew 7:14)
