In a world saturated with social media and unlimited interruptions,many of us struggle to focus on what’s in front of us,on what is most important.with so many voices vying for attention,it’s hard to know what’s worth our time.
We may be excited about God, but because we have become a product of our digital world, we have a diminished ability to think deeply about Him, to truly know Him as He is. More and more of us are finding that we just can’t stop long enough to read. We can’t sustain our attention long enough to study. We can’t find the time to meet with our Father.
Where prayer used to be the first activity of the day, we now begin our daily routine by checking messages . Where the Bible used to be a special Book we read and studied, now it’s an e-book that competes with our text messages, WhatsApp and the ever-present lure of the Internet.
We must learn to discover what distracts us,destroy it and cultivate concentration and seek out solitude regularly and habitually .
We must remember why we are in this,why we started this journey,those specific things God told us.keep your eyes on Jesus let him be your focus .
in Hebrews 12:1-3
“Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!”
In the midst of all of this distraction, the cure is to refocus our attention on what matters most. If our distracted existence is the fruit of allowing beeps to control our lives,then we must respond by silencing the beeps and relearning how to focus.
You really don’t want to wake up and you are 40 and then realize you haven’t done anything imperative with the life God has given you.
