The other morning I was praying and my mind was so crowded with things I couldn't concentrate. It seemed that God said to me. "you must need to focus"
Focus ~ center of activity, attraction, attention or concentration.
What God is done, is doing, is going to do and most of all what we can do for Him and His work should be the focal point of our life. It is so hard to see in shades of darkness or after your eyes have been dilated. You have to adjust your focus. The devil does that to us by putting things in our focus and crowds out God. Paul said, Philippians 2:21 "for all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ". We must focus on the straight and narrow way or we wreck our relationship with God.
We must focus our mind. Philippians 2:5 "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus".
We must focus our eyes and ears Matthew 13:16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears for they hear". We have to guard our eyes and ears. We are what we watch, read and listen to. When things come against us or try to pull us down spiritually, we need to stop and tell ourselves to FOCUS on what is the utmost important thing in life, not things, money, people, etc.
Being what God wants us to be!
