Champions Focus on God
Everyone loves to pull for the underdog. Whether in sports, business, or the movies, we always like to see the character with the most obstacles overcome them. It stirs our souls because we secretly wish we could have the courage to accomplish something extraordinary.
There is one consistent trait that moves even the weakest person to triumph, and that is true focus. The men and women in the Bible who accomplished great things for God's Kingdom had great focus. Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon, and many more trained their eyes to stay put on the Lord.
Taking your eyes off God can result in failure, just like keeping your eyes firmly fixed on Him can bring some of the greatest victories you will ever know. In your weakest moments, ask yourself if you are focused on God or on your situation. Whenever self-pity sets in, know that failure is lurking nearby. Bemoaning about difficulty demonstrates that your faith has been rocked. Confidence in God can vanish when you try to solve your problems apart from Him.
Keeping our focus on the Lord keeps us from repeating past failures. As we realize that He is the One who leads us through impossible situations, we rely less and less upon our own strength and more on His.
Trusting Him for direction and confidently following His lead are marks of a champion - a champion who is focused firmly upon the Lord.
Prayer: Lord, please help me to stay focused on You, trusting that You will work through me to accomplish great things. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God" (Hebrews 12:2).
