God Connect: Daily Renewing Your Mind, Body, and Spirit

Focus

on February 5, 2012

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affections on things above, not on things on the earth.”  Colossians 3:1-2

Many times the path we take in life has many bumps and many turns.  We often come to a fork in the road, and we struggle with which way to go.  It’s at those times in our lives that we need to seek the Lord for guidance in which direction to go.  There are often things that we see that tempt us to veer off the path or to go to the right or left.  When our focus is on things of this world, such as fortune, fame, success, or even family and friends, we often get sidetracked from the direction God is trying to lead us.  That’s why the Bible reminds us to set our affections on things above, not on things on the earth.  When we are truly focused and tuned into God we will not miss the opportunities and perfect plans He has for us.

Today I challenge you to check your focus.  If you’ve gotten off the path or are sidetracked, ask God to help you find Your way back to where you belong.  In doing so, you will experience the completeness and satisfaction of knowing you’re back in the perfect will of God.

“Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.  Turn not to the right hand or to the left:  remove they foot from evil.”  Proverbs 4:26-27
