Recently I wrote a series of Facebook posts about being focused. Focusing on the things that God desires us to to be exact. When we focus on those things it is then that we are able to bear good fruit. And if we don't bear any good fruit, then we are not of God. (Matt 7:18,19; Luke 6:43)
I wanted to share this particular post with my faithful blog friends!
So here we go!
Below are some of God's focuses for us:
1. Things of eternal value. The Kingdom of God:
"Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
2. Being built in His word:
-"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
-2 Timothy 2:15
To then, be built in faith:
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
To then, allow the Word of God to bring Real teansformation:
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."
-2 Timothy 3:16-17
3. Seeing clearly in the spirit:
"Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee."
So that you will walk in the Spirit:
"For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit."
"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him."
4. The presence of God:
"Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore."
And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.
"God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."
"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."
-2 Cor 3:17
5. Focus on the results that come from the presence of God:
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."
6. Operating in the wisdom of Christ:
So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding.
For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.
-1 Corinthians 2:16
7. Being Faithful. (To God the tasks He gives us to do, and the blessings He bestowed upon us all):
- Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
Love you all with the Love of Christ.
Love you all,
