Topic: Focus On God – A Key to Joy [Seeds of Destiny 27 December 2018 Devotional]
Scripture: …for the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10
Thought For The Day: What you look at determines what you will look like.
Yesterday, we saw that one major feature of the journey to the top is joy and excitement. You cannot feel low and fly high in life. Weight is the enemy of speed. You cannot be weighed down and go up in life. If you want God to take you up, you must release Joy.
Now, what is your secret of joy? It is the maintenance of FOCUS ON GOD.
Keeping your focus on God and on His Word and promises for your life is a major key to living a joyful life. If you want joy in your life, then do not focus on where you are; focus on where you are going. Because Jesus could see Himself sitting at the right Hand of God, glorified, it gave Him the capacity to endure the Cross (Hebrews 12:2). When you focus on the ultimate, you can escape the immediate. Being joyful is your choice; you can either choose to be happy or sad.
Now, what do you focus on?
- Focus on the revelations of the Word of God about your life, health, marriage, fruitfulness, etc. What you look at determines what you will look like. If you at it, you will get there (2Corinthians 3:18) (Joshua 1:8).
- Focus on what God has put in your heart concerning your future and connect it with the Word of God (Psalm 45:1).
- Focus on the prophecies and revelations that God has given you (Acts 27:25).
- Focus on positive testimonies from living witnesses (Psalm 119:99).
Beloved, as you focus on God, His Word, prophesies, revelations and testimonies from God’s Word, your joy shall know no bounds, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember This: What you look at determines what you will look like.
- Let the Word of God become Your focus daily.
- Praise God for all your expectations.
Prayer: O Lord, I praise You for Your Word to me today. I know that as I praise You, my expectations will become my manifestations, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
