Focus on God

It can be so easy to focus on “stuff,” rather than the main reason for us being alive – relationship with God.

“Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.” Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬ ‭MSG‬‬

‭What is really important to you?

Being afraid of missing out actually pushes God out of first place – whether we mean for this to happen, or not. This is because we still try to strive to get everything done and so we are not actively focusing on Him.

Yet, this scripture realigns our thinking – God is the one who supplies our everyday needs, so just concentrate on your relationship with Him and not worry about everything else.

I have found there are five things in life that when I focus on this order, everything just seems to fall into place…

  1. God – He has to be first else life just gets too hard!
  2. Family – sometimes we forget that it is ok to pick your Husband/partner or your child/ren over other things.
  3. Ministry / Work – what ever God has called you to do, this comes next, but read point two again!
  4. Recreation – what do YOU enjoy doing? Walking, painting, reading…etc. Allow yourself time to breathe.
  5. Exercise – don’t hate me! But this is important for our minds and our bodies to focus and remain healthy. After all, God lives in us!

  1. I have been truely blessed by this post, and I thank the Lord, because I was doing my work at university, and I searched scripture posters, and I clicked on one I liked, and it led me to this website. I read your testimony, and I was so encouraged, and was greatful that the Lord led me to your website. I have been following the posts, and have been refreshed constantly by the Lord’s grace through His word, and I pray He will grow you more into His Son, and water you more and more in His presence.

    God bless you and He will perfect all things for your good, according to His will.
