Focus is important in warfare. Soldiers do not shoot aimlessly. They are focused on their target. They aren’t focused on what their fellow soldiers are doing, they do not become distracted by their scenery-they remain centered on the mission at hand.
We can stand to learn something from those who have engaged in battle-in the natural and in the supernatural.
When Jesus was headed to the cross, He kept His eyes straight ahead, knowing that the mission was greater than what He was facing in the moment. When Caleb and Joshua visited the promise land, they did not get distracted by the giants-they remained focused on the promise that God had for the children of Israel.
Focus is an essential component of the armor of God! We cannot afford to lose focus or to become distracted. This is why this Word is of great importance:
Remember hearing in church to turn to you neighbor? The time of looking to our neighbors is over sisters! Its time to keep our gaze straight ahead so that we can press towards the mark!
As you put on your armor, consider your focus! Are you more concerned about what your neighbor is doing or are you focused on your mission? Are you more focused on the plan of God for someone’s life and not yours? Are you aware of your surroundings, naturally and supernaturally?
Look to the hills-that’s where your help comes from. Set your minds on things above, the eternal is what lasts forever. Press towards the mark-what the Lord has for you is ahead of you and not behind you!
Focus-mighty woman of God! It’s essential for our fight against those demonic spirits and principalities that are out to steal, kill and destroy. Focus on the victory that is already yours in Christ Jesus!
