If you rely on your feelings, impulses, or worldly desires, you can’t stay on track. Our ways don’t work just in case you haven’t noticed.
Don’t get me wrong, you still have a free will. You can choose to do what you want but, eventually, it will not go well!
The way to live FOCUSED on God is spelled out in Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Direct your path)
In order to be focused, you have to be CENTERED. If your priorities are based on your purpose and your purpose comes from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you will be able to stay focused.
Let’s review the four things for focusing your life mentioned in Proverbs 3:5-6:
- Dependence-TRUST IN THE LORD
- Dedication-WITH ALL YOUR HEART
- Discipline-AND DO NOT LEAN ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING
- Discernment-IN ALL YOUR WAYS, ACKNOWLEDGE HIM
Focusing your life results in…
Direction for your life! AND HE WILL MAKE YOUR PATHS STRAIGHT.
The end process of dependence, dedication, discipline, and discernment is the LIFE WE YEARN FOR…ONE WITH DIRECTION, PURPOSE AND FOCUS TO IT!
So, you see, we are not just floating around in a sea of uncertainty. God promises to direct your path.
He’s just saying…Stay Focused Honey, Stay Focused.
