When our fear is ramped, our eyes are on us, guaranteed. When our faith in God is ramped, our humble focus is on God, guaranteed. You cannot operate deep in faith in God and still be unable to function due to fear. It is impossible. Faith and focus on God is love and that drives fear away. There is no room for fear when you are operating in faith in God. It is impossible and you are not being truthful if you say otherwise. And we cannot overcome a lie with another lie, we must call it as it is and then we can fix it with humble faith and focus on God and be set free from fear. Knowing and admitting is half the battle. The second half is deciding to trust (act out your faith in) God and focus on Him.❤
Some people want bad things to happen. I used to think this was ridiculous but I see it. Always focused on the bad or in a constant hunt for it and focus on anything remotely unpleasant and blowing that into significance are all ways they prove this. Some people do not want n peace and prove it these ways. They want war and ugly and bad things because that is matches what is going on inside of them or they are used to it.
Instead of that, in direct opporition to it, if we embrace Christ, He gives peace and joy inside to all you to desire and work for good things. We have control of this and we do much greater even than that by yielding control to Jesus who is bivgerhan any bad habit or bad thing.
Focusing on God and accepting His love allows us to make good choices, which put any resulting bad thing into proper perspective, which is, eternally – speaking, insignificance. Choose today. You are stronger than you think (with God) and have the power to choose. 😄❤
Jesus Christ should always be our focus. Always? Yep. We never ever go wrong when we focus on God and lift Him up in importance and praise and worship in our life. It is never time spent poorly, you never regret it, it is never a waste, you never have to confess afterwards, it is as it should be. This is true in church, in our homes, in school, in work, in the car- especially in the car-, at the store, in lines, at the bank, etc. Focusing on Jesus Christ will never lead you the wrong way and never be unrewarded. It is always the right thing to do. Pray, read your Bible, admire His creation, be still and listen, praise and worship. This will change your life and maybe those around you. Test this and see. Try it and be blessed. God strengthen and bless you in this invaluable focus experiment today!😄❤
When I focus on myself, I see the problems, feel the pain, see my flaws, limit my view, want more, etc. It is ugly.
However, when I focus on Jesus–read His Word and pray all the time–, I have pece and joy, see other’s needs, want to help people, minimize my pain, see solutions, see glory and beauty in myself and others, increase my view and vision etc. It is beautiful.
Thus, I am very foolish indeed if I focus on myself rather than Jesus Christ. I choose to be wise and focus on Christ. I choose this right now and will choose it again in a minute or hour or as often as needs be to create the habit. 😄❤
If I keep in my head and heart that I am always with or working for and with Jesus Christ, life is incredibly peaceful inside. When I focus on Jesus and my relationship with Him, I have energy for the moment and strength and integrity. I am therefore a better person, useful to my family and society, never alone, encouraging to anyone in my path. Because of me and my gifts? A little, but much moreso because Jesus Christ is so perfect and good that people are touched by our closeness to Him. We don’t have to be perfect to make a difference and be the light; we just have to be as close to Jesus Christ as possible. His goodness will trickle down through us to love on everyone we see. And all we need to remember constantly and pray is that w are always about Jesus Christ.❤😄
Revival will happen when we focus on and emulate Jesus Christ. As we worship and lift Him up with the power of His Holy Spirit, we correct the proper balance to the world He made. It is supposed to be that way. We were made by Him for Him and not the other way around. And He is so worthy of praise is He! God is magnificent, full of power and majesty, grace and generosity, love and holiness, truth and faithfulness. No one is like Him and no one can stand before Him without permission, even His worst enemy. Praise God and focus on Jesus in your home, in your church, in your small group or Sunday school, in your workplace, in school, wherever. As we lift up Jesus, He will draw all men to Himself and heal with love and pour grace and peace and joy into our souls and spirits. That with humility is the key to peace, joy, delicious life and correct function.😄❤❤❤
I found out tonight a woman of God I had admired quit her church because someone in leadership had sinned in the past. Really? This was difficult because I had thought she was mature in the faith, being older than my mom. Turns out older and mature in the faith do not necessarily go hand in hand, because judging is a big problem when you are not sinless. And isn’t a sin confessed and repented of nonexistent after the consequences had already been paid? So, I will yet again withdraw sincere and determined admiration for any human being and take them with a grain of salt. I will focus on Jesus, who has never let me down, and quite the contrary always has been there for me and perfectly so. There is a reason and now I again remember why God says to trust in God and not man. God cannot fail, never changes character, always is perfect, always loves us/me, and is worth our worship and attention. Let us focus on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith.❤❤❤
