FOCUS is very important but focus has two primary elements. The mental and the physical.
The physical means you have the physical ability to focus, there is nothing preventing you from focusing. In life this translates to the EXTERIOR. Removing anything on the outside that will prevent you from focusing. Removing distractions, noises, even people who may be dragging you down or holding you back. Getting your life situation is such a way that you are able to FOCUS on what God has called you to do.
The mental element of focus is INTERNAL. This requires fixing your eyes on Jesus. This requires meditating on the word of God, prayer, and even fasting. FOCUSING on God requires DISCIPLINE. FOCUS also means deciding what you are NOT going to do, no matter how good a thing it is. God knows I am guilty of doing a lot of good things that were in fact simply distractions from me doing the GOD THING in my life.
I believe that people like myself who are into a lot of different things, even we must FOCUS. We might be good at a lot of different things, but it’s almost impossible to do those things all at the same time. There are seasons for everything. The question to ask God is, “What season am I in now? God, what do you want me to FOCUS on in the beginning of 2020?”
Sometimes it can be as simple as making a list of all the things you believe God wants you to do in 2020 and then prioritizing. Focus on a) what is most important and b) what is most urgent. Also remember that before you can move onto the next thing, you must (usually) finish what God has already assigned to you. Sometimes we don’t hear from God because He has nothing new to say. He is still waiting for the last assignment to be completed.
God bless you, your family, and your ministry in 2020!
