Your Focus Is Your Choice

Whatever you focus you attention on, your heart becomes sensitive to that. Conversely, what you neglect, your heart becomes insensitive to that area.

Do you focus on the natural or supernatural?

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 3:

13 This is the time to encourage each other to never be stubborn or hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.

The word carnal means you are dominated by your five physical senses.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

5 Those who are motivated by the flesh only pursue what benefits themselves. But those who live by the impulses of the Holy Spirit are motivated to pursue spiritual realities. 6 For the mind-set of the flesh (carnally minded) is death, but the mind-set controlled by the Spirit finds life and peace. 7 In fact, the mind-set focused on the flesh fights God’s plan and refuses to submit to his direction, because it cannot! 8 For no matter how hard they try, God finds no pleasure with those who are controlled by the flesh.

How do you become more spiritually sensitive or spiritually minded?

Glorify GOD in some manner every day.  We should value what FATHER, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit have done in our lives.

Be thankful.  My wife and I have a placard on our wall with the word “Grateful” for we are truly grateful to HIM for all that HE has done.

Protect your imagination.  Cast down any vain imagination that arises.  If an imagination which promotes unrighteousness in any fashion arises in your mind, speak against it and cast it out of your mind.  Do not dwell on it but dwell only on the positive.  Your imagination provides seed for hope so don’t allow the wrong seed to be planted in your heart.  The wrong seed will ultimately produce despair, anxiety, and guilt.

Meditate on The Word and renew your mind daily.

By doing these four things, you will become more sensitive to GOD and improve your hearing of what The Holy Spirit is directing.  If you focus on the problem rather that FATHER’S solution, your heart will become insensitive to the supernatural.  You will then begin to walk in fear, uncertainty, and doubt rather than in faith and peace.  This will separate you from the Holy Spirit flowing through you.

Jesus spoke in Mark chapter 4:

18 And the seed sown among thorns represents those who hear the Word, 19 but they allow the cares of this life and the seduction of wealth and the desires for other things to crowd out and choke the Word so that it produces nothing. 20 “But the seed sown on good soil represents those who open their hearts to receive the Word and their lives bear good fruit— some yield a harvest of thirty, sixty, even one hundred times more than was sown!”

We must not allow the world to crowd out and choke the Word out of our lives.  The responsibility lies squarely on our shoulders of what path we take which is determined by our daily priorities.

As for me and my family, we will serve THE LORD.
