Intense Focus

Throughout our lives, we tend to focus on the things that are most important to us in any given season. Sometimes we are focused on getting through school. Other times we may be focused on finishing up a project at work. We focus on relationships, we focus on life goals, and sometimes we just we focus on survival; focus is a great because our focus helps us to achieve our goals. But what happens if we shift our focus to view things through the eyes of Jesus? What happens if we ask our King what he is intensely focused on, and reorder our priorities to have the same intense focus on what our King wants accomplished in this season of our life? Of course, this will be different for everyone because our roles in the body of Christ are different, but when our focus is in alignment with His focus, our impact increases exponentially. It’s easy to get sidetracked on the current popular thing or the shiny new idea we see in the culture around us, but we need to remember that focusing on the systems of the world takes our eyes off our King. I am confident that there is a supernatural solution to every problem on earth, and those solutions are in the heart of our King. Part of our job as followers of Jesus is to align our perspectives, ideas, and focus with what he is doing, so that we can partner with Him to accomplish the work of His Kingdom being established on the earth. Because when His Kingdom shows up, everything else immediately bows before the King of all Kings. I want nothing more than to see the Kingdom of God firmly established on the earth. That should be our primary focus, because it is His primary focus.
