I am not an expert when it comes to guns, but I do know that a gun has a “sight” on it. If the sight is not correct the target will be missed. It needs to be accurate to get a right shot. If you are hunting it would be absolutely vital to have a good sight. If the sight is not correct, it would cause you to not be able to focus correctly. You would never hit your target and you would go home emptyhanded.
We can lose “focus” spiritually also when we have our “sight” out of balance. If we spend our time only focusing on the problems that we have, and we do not focus on the promises of God, we will never have victory in our lives.
Many walk in fear, neglecting to know that God did not give them the spirit of fear. (II Timothy 1:7.) Many walk in lack, when they neglect to find the scripture that God will provide all their need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19.)
Many are sick hoping that someday they will get better, but do not focus on the scriptures that tell us Jesus already paid the price for our sicknesses and diseases. (Psalm 103:3.) We must focus on receiving what is already ours.
I can guarantee that if you stop focusing on your problems but change your focus to God’s promises things will change. They may not change overnight because Hebrews 10:36 says, “For ye have need of patience, that after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.”
The will of God is to focus on Him and His Word. We are to meditate on it day and night. (Psalm 1:2.) It is when we look at the problems through a “sight” that is off that we fail.
For every problem there is a promise. But you must dig for them daily and then claim them for yourself. Then wait for it to come to pass. Do not lose your focus my friends, it will only delay the promise.
