IDENTIFY YOUR SOURCE
1 CORINTHIANS 10:13 – “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”
In this world of distraction, it is very easy get off track and lose our focus. What situation are you facing right now that draws your attention off your Creator? It may be hardship and difficulty or it may be success and prosperity. The Bible says that we must keep our focus by identifying our source. As Christians, the battle the Bible talks about in Galatians 5:16-22 is the battle of our minds, the battle of choosing between right and wrong. Your focus is your personal decision. You can complain, you can blame others but you are responsible for what you give your attention to. What are the things that can make you lose focus? It is those foolish things that cause tension and pressure. No matter what was going on in Jesus’ life, He kept His focus. When you know where you are going, whatever happens to you midway cannot change your focus.
The situation with you now on the outside may be poor, painful, frightening and discouraging but remember your dream – that dream should be your focus, not your present situation.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, give me the grace to identify You as my source and keep focused on my mission in Jesus’ name.
