HEBREWS 12:2 ”
looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God”.
Most of us lose focus and are sidetracked or derailed from our goals, because we allow the enticement and excitement of the things of the world to cloud or darken our vision. This is the main reason why so many people have failed to achieve their goals in life and end up falling in the ditches, cracks and crevices of life; they fall and most refuse to get back up again. Just like Peter who took his eyes of off Jesus while walking on water, we see how easily we can fall when we allow fear, the elements and people to derail us and sink us (Matthew 14:30). However, if we stay focused by obeying God’s Word we will not fall.
Proverbs 4:25-27 “Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of they feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.”
Paul took focusing on God further by telling us in Philippians 3:13-14 to, forget those things which are behind, and reach forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. What are you focusing on or pressing toward? Is it the kingdom of God or heaven? Matthew 6:33 tells us to seek God’s kingdom first, so that He will be able to add the rest. If you focus on God, He will focus on you.
What we focus on will eventually lead to heaven or hell, joy or sorrow, life eternal or death and torment. Proverbs 28:26 tells us that, “He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom is kept safe.” There is a path that seems right unto a man, but at the end is destruction (Proverbs 14:12). Keep your eyes on God, He has His eyes on you.
Proverbs 16:25 “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
Proverbs 21:2 “Every way of man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts.”
