“Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established” Proverbs 16:3, ESV.
Using a camera lens, we can zoom in, zoom out, change lighting and make other adjustments to snap a picture. As good as the camera may be, it still requires focus to capture the shot we want. Our lives are like cameras that must be focused in order to accomplish what the Father has for us to do. The bridge between you and your purpose is your focus.
Some of us can find ourselves being easily distracted losing our focus on the primary tasks before us. If you don’t focus on seeking God, you won’t find Him. No matter how much talent you have, if you don’t focus on becoming a disciplined individual and perfecting your gifts, you won’t achieve the success you desire. God has an amazing purpose for your life, and with some focus, you can experience the perfect will of God. You will see the prize of your calling and your goals obtained. Use the beginning of this year, even if the Father says to pray and fast, to locate and set your focus on what the Lord has for you. What you focus on, you will capture.
Prayer: Father, you are good, and I know You have great things in store for me. I get overjoyed when I think about your plans for me. Help me to stay focused. I come against all of the enemy’s distractions. I have the mind of Christ. By Your power, I ask for a focused heart. I ask for Your direction, and I receive the focus necessary to carry out Your will and possess what you have for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
