The Right Focus

The Right Focus

“You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm.” Isa 26:3 GNT

Your life is like a camera; you’ve got to focus it right, to get the right results. Having the right focus brings four results: (1) It simplifies things. When you’re not clear as to your purpose, you try to do too much—and that causes stress, inner conflict and confusion. You have only enough time and energy to do God’s will. Not getting everything done may be an indicator that you’re doing far more than God ever intended. Focus leads to a simpler lifestyle and a saner schedule. Only when you keep your focus can you keep your peace: “You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm.” (2) It gives you direction. If you want your life to have impact, consult God, then do what He tells you. Don’t confuse activity with productivity. Diffused light has limited impact, but when light is focused like a laser it can cut through steel. (3) It energizes you. It’s meaningless work, not overwork, that wears you down. George Bernard Shaw wrote: “This is the true joy of life: being used up for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being a force of nature instead of a selfish little clot of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.” (4) It determines your legacy. When people recall your name, what will they associate with it? “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold” (Pr 22:1 NIV). Ultimately, what matters isn’t what others say about you, but what God says. So focus on the end game.
