What are you focusing on? Who are you trying to impress? Most of us love earthly things and if you don’t then you are on the wrong planet, because you must love something on this planet. Be it the moon, the stars, food, people, cars, and the list goes on. There is a lot of things in this world that we love, and our Creator made it all beautiful and lovely for us to enjoy them, for us to be happy, not sad, for us to be content, not greedy and also not to worship. So who or what has taken our focus off of God?
Are we so consumed and over powered by greed and lust for the things of this world that our undivided attention is on what we want and can get, that we lose focus of the God who gave us everything, of His commandments, of His love, so much that we can’t even spend an hour with Him much less a day. We forget that we were only supposed to work for six days and give Him one out of the seven. And you wonder why your life is a living hell, why your prayers aren’t answered, why you can’t catch a break, well let me break it to you, God spends time with people who spends time with Him. He (God) will notice you when you notice Him, He will recognise you, when you recognise Him. Where is your focus ?
Matthew 6:22-23 tells us that, ‘The lamp of the body is the eye…’therefore, if all you see is good, then your life would be good. However, if all you see is bad then your life will be bad. So again I ask where is your focus? Sin can only come into our lives if we allow it and the only way it comes in is through the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life which we see in 1 John 2:16. It’s only when we see the things of the world and desire them over everything, even God, that we are captivated by sin. When you focus on the things of the world you lose sight of God and that does not make Him happy.
Normally it’s the things we perceive as valuable and desirable over everything else will get us into serious trouble, allow us to make the wrong choices, and lead us down the path of destruction, which cost us our jobs, family, friends, and relationship with God. Which will drive you crazy and leave you in a state of devastation that leads to deterioration and ultimately death. In these last days we need to focus more on the creator of the universe, more than the things He created, time is running out. Stop looking at the things you can get or achieve in this world, and get right with God.
When you focus on the things of this world, instead of heavenly things; then your choice is the devil instead of God, and hell instead of heaven, but you have a chance right now to change all that.
