Have you felt distracted recently, unsure of where God wants you at this time? I want to encourage you to stay focused on your future ahead.
The enemy loves to deceive us, but if he is unable to, his next best tactic is to distract us. Where are the areas in your life where He might be doing this? Where your purpose and future are! This is why we so often can feel discouraged in the very place we are meant to prosper in. No one is able to do everything at once, making it so important to know what few things are a priority for you in your current season. As you make these clear to yourself, you will be able to share your priorities with those around you.
Being Focused on Your Future Requires Discipline
Not looking to the right or to the left, but on the path ahead requires undivided attention. What has God called you to prioritize in this season? If it’s your family, give them your best. If it’s your marriage, put it above other obligations. Maybe it’s a season of deep inner healing; devote time and attention to stewarding the breakthrough God is releasing over you.
Make Your Yes and No Very Clear
Here are some practical questions to ask yourself as you commit to plans and make decisions:
-Does attending this event prevent me from completing any tasks or requirements to hit my weekly goals?
-How will saying “yes” or “no” to this person or thing hinder or support what I’ve chosen to focus on in this season?
As you learn to focus on where God has you, you might find yourself saying “no” more often. Don’t believe the lie this is a problem! Walking out your destiny with God should challenge you. You are doing better than you think! Staying the course with God will always be better than veering into distraction.
