Day 11: Focus
Feb 11th, 2021
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
So many times, we think that those areas that are defeating us need some kind of radical, cold turkey response. Many a plan has started and failed because of a rash or unplanned approach. The ultimate goal is for those things which Christ died for us to die in us immediately. But i have found that the best way to defeat an obsession is to replace it with a greater affection. Let your neck do the heavy lifting and turn your head, shift your focus onto whats possible for a life fully surrendered to the Lord and take your eyes off of the unhealthy things that are competing for your attention.
Thought to ponder
What unhealthy things are you holding onto? Think on those things and journal about the items that would have the greatest impact if they became your dominant focus.
Lord, give me the eyes to see. I know that many things in my life will have distraction but I ask you to give me your vision in whichever direction I look. Give me the perspective of your sight, your thoughts and your desires. In Jesus name, Amen
