In a world filled with distractions, it is a challenge to stay spiritually focused. Our quiet time is filled with noise. If there is a moment to slow
down and seek the Lord, we tend to distract ourselves instead of giving our attention to God. This is what satisfies Satan. His goal is “to kill, to steal, and to destroy” us (John 10:10).
Here are three ways we can stay spiritually focused in a distracted world.
Pay attention to what you pay attention to. What we focus on is what becomes our influencer. Another way to put it is what fills our minds ultimately fills our hearts. A Romans 12:2 reminder is “ Be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.”
Create boundaries. Proverb 4: 23 “Above all else, guard your heart with all diligence, for it is the wellspring of life.” Just like we establish guards and boundaries to protect our personal valuables, we must guard our heart and protect it from the things that direct your focus away from the things of God.
Concentrate on what matters. Philippians 4: 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think (focus) on these things.”
“What fills our minds ultimately fills our hearts.”
