My Fire My Flame and My Focus

"giving orders to the people: "When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the Levitical priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it. Then you will know which way to go, since you have never been this way before." Joshua 3:3-4a

The Israelites were entering into new territory.  What would determine their victory on all sides?  Their focus on obeying the Lord and focusing on the Ark, which represents the eternal covenant between God and His people, which He later established through the blood, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  This focus wins every battle every time and will never ever fail; it is written in heaven forever.

God encourages you to say" I will fight for my fire my flame and my focus".  My focus is where the fire and flame comes from.  If you feel a conflict that means something, some extra commitment needs to be considered to be fallen off.  The art of letting go.  The art of less is more.  The art of saying, "No" regardless of the money offer, regardless of the strategic connections you could get, regardless of the great name you could conjure up for yourself, learn the art of focus.

Focusing on the simple things you are already doing.  Let go let go let go.  If you feel a conflict or a certain stress with something you want to "make happen" let go, spend some time with God because God wants to spend some time with you.  Talk with Him, just with Him and talk with Him and listen to him.  He has a word; He has something He wants to tell you.  He wants to strengthen  your spiritual bones and bring you with Him spiritually deeper deeper with him.  We wants to bring you into a room to shake  you up to shake off those things you have to let go of, something  had a problem with before He will make you not only incredibly secure but incredibly and positively influential in that area because He is God and He knows what's ahead so trust Him; He is your defense; He is your redeemer, defender, restorer, strengthener, light, force, power, He is your everything or bust.   God is on your side and making a way and if you feel an attack than shout louder and praise God because the enemy is UPSET with you!  Why? Because EVERYTHING blessing related is about to burst forth! Get prepared for it now and spend some time with God.  He is about to bless you.  God bless you today.

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
