God focused, devil aware
What are we focused on? Or should we say who are we focused on?

Need to establish there is an enemy that wants us to be focused on him instead of God. He wants the attention and when he can take our focus off God, he can trip us up.
Matthew 14:28-30 (NLT)
Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.” “Yes, come,” Jesus said. So, Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted
When we stay focused on Him, we can do anything, just like Peter walking on Water.
We are either serving God’s Kingdom or the enemies, there is no middle ground.
Matthew 12:30 (NLT)
“Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me, and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me.
Daniel 10:12-13 (NLT)
Then he said, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer. But for twenty-one days the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia blocked my way. Then Michael, one of the archangels, came to help me, and I left him there with the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia. Now I am here to explain what will happen to your people in the future, for this vision concerns a time yet to come.”
Daniel 10:20 (NLT)
He replied, “Do you know why I have come? Soon I must return to fight against the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia, and after that the spirit prince of the kingdom of Greece will come.
Remember God Focused, devil aware. Keep your focus on God, but remind yourself there is an enemy that is seeking to destroy you, me, and all of us. Be on guard!
1 Peter 5:8 (NLT)
Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.
2 Kings 6:17 (NIV)
And Elisha prayed, "Open his eyes, LORD, so that he may see." Then the LORD opened the servant's eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
2 Kings 6:16 (NIV)
Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
Our enemy is a shadow caster. If he can get our focus off Jesus, he can snag us up.
This is how he gets us to take our attention and focus off God and focused on the shadows he is casting.
We must remain God focused, devil aware. Not saying you just forget these things, but always put God in focus and it helps us overcome and come through. He and only He can give us the strength.
God knew we needed help and that’s why He sent Jesus. Jesus gives us the strength and has already defeat our enemy. The battle is already won!
2 Colossians 2:14-15
He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. In this way, he disarmed[d] the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.
Church let us learn from Peter and remind ourselves to keep our eyes on the one who saved us from death, the one who has defeated our enemies, and the one who has given us new life.
Jesus gave up His life so we could have ours.
Let’s keep our focus on Jesus and remind ourselves to Be God focused, but devil aware.
Ephesians 6:10-12 (NLT)
A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12For wed are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
