We spend most of our time focusing on what doesn’t matter and this drains our energy to put all the focus necessary on what matters. We are bothered by what will not take us anywhere and ignore what will take us somewhere. We are stressed and unhappy; if we could analyse what creates unhappiness in our lives we would find out that it’s the things that don’t matter that steal our happiness.
Focusing on what MATTERS
What matters is that God loves us so much and He wants to do the best for us. However, the problem is that instead of focusing on Him, we are focusing on what steals our peace and time for prayer. We are bothered by what other people do instead of what God wants to do in our lives. The truth and the reality is that we don’t have control over the other person’s actions and if that person wants to do something, he or she will do it, regardless of how we feel.
On the other hand, the advantage of focusing on God is that He will show you His purpose for your life and teach you what to do in order to fulfil the purpose. As He says in Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know”.
As you call upon Him and indulge in His presence, He will answer you and teach you what you need to know. The truth is that no one knows in this world what you need to know in order to fulfil your purpose except God. People will try to tell you what you need to know; only to find out it’s irrelevant to your purpose. Hence we need to look upon God for guidance.
God rewarding you for focusing on Him
With everything we do with God or for Him, He rewards us. As Jesus says in Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you”. Therefore, as we focus on Him and what He is all about, He rewards us with the desires of our hearts as per Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart”.
These are some of the advantages of focusing on what matters and what matters in our lives is God and fulfilling the purpose that He set for us before we were even born. When we have mastered this art, then we will be unstoppable on this earth and there will be no limits for us; because we would be serving a Master in charge of the entire earth!
