What you focus on has a serious impact on what you say and how you act! What you focus on has a direct impact on the state of your heart! Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life (Proverbs 4:23). If you really want to live a Holy life, pleasing to God, your responsibility (not God’s) is to keep your heart free from things and people that pollute your spirit. Many of us make vows upon vows to be clean, we plan to do better but… we remain loyal to what’s drawing us back.
We remain dedicated to keeping up with those who are so worldly. We remain attached to material things! It’s impossible to keep your focus on the wrong things, and do right. If you focus on something long enough, you’ll begin to move in that direction. Even as a Christian, the onus is on you to protect yourself, starting with your heart. If your focus is truly on God, your appetite for a lot of worldly pleasures will begin to die off while your hunger for the things of God will be on the rise. Enjoy your life but… don’t get attached!
Deliberately get rid of anything that may be affecting your focus negatively; that may have caged your heart and kept you from being fully glued to your Maker. That may just be the reason why you are where you are today. You may be wondering why things in your life are not going as you believe they should. Check your focus! Check the state of your heart! A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart… In order words, your heart is the fountain of your life; be determined to keep it pure and pleasing to God so you can keep moving in the right direction.
