Every day you choose what you give power to. Whatever has your attention, you are allowing to have authority, and in turn, power in your life. It’s a sobering moment when you realise all the different things that you have given your attention to across a day. A negative thought, a fear, the past, a TV series that you just binged, your marriage… etc.
What we give attention to, we give authority to.
If we choose to allow our attention to be on God, we allow Him to work in and through us. Our thought life changes, our priorities change and we see His power at work in our day to day life. Philippians 4:8 says, “So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honourable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God praising him always.”
The more we focus on God, the more power we give for His spirit to work in and through us to change the lives of those around us. So today, allow your focus on Jesus to influence how you see others.
