Focus

When God created us, He implemented special features and talents unique to each individual. Not one person is exactly the same as another. Knowing this, why do we try so hard to be like other people? The world and all its crafty influences encourage people to think they are to mold to a certain standard. This worldly standard is the devil in disguise. Beware of the “look” and the “performance” that you are influenced by. God created us to be an image of Him. His greatest desire is that you will utilize the special features and talents He equipped you with, to the best of your ability. Look within yourself. What are you focusing on in your life? Are you focusing on what you can do for God, and the gifts and talents God gave you…or what the world has to offer?

“What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.” MATTHEW 16:26-27

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. EPHESIANS 2:10

God is with us.
