Title: Focus in Uncertain Times
As a time management coach, I’m used to helping people be more focused. But usually the idea of “staying focused” has primarily been in regard to getting important tasks done. But in these uncertain times surrounding the coronavirus, God has shown me that focus not only determines whether we get things done but also dictates our emotional state. When we focus on the right things, we can experience peace, joy, and hope in any situation. These fruits of the Spirit are available to you right here, right now. But your focus will determine whether you receive these blessings or not.
As Romans 12:2 exhorts us:
"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--His good, pleasing and perfect will."
In this devotional, we will be discussing what to put focus on and what to take the focus off. And as you readjust your lens, God will get bigger, any problems you face will get smaller, and you will be able to enter into the full blessings available to you as a son or daughter of God. This includes both the ability to get done what you can do as well as to experience the perfect peace available to you in the Lord.
"You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You."
