Whatever we focus on, whether positive or negative, tends to come true?
That doesn’t mean if we expect to win, we’ll always wine. Or that everything we fear will eventually happen. But there is a general pattern: when we focus on what not to do, we often end up doing that very thing. But if we can envision what we want to do, we have the motivation and the faith to see it through until it happens.
We need to discipline our thought to accomplish the things we dream of and the things Gods has called us to do. He wants us to do our best and use the gifts He has given us to achieve extraordinary results. We have to believe what He believes – that we can. It’s hard, if not impossible, to achieve what we dream while focusing on all the reasons we can’t. When we focus on the obstacle in front of us, they seem to grow larger and larger until we give up. If we focus on what God can do through us – and on His promise that if we trust in Him – He will give us the desires of our hearts, then we become confident and able to achieve what we were designed to achieve.
Start each day by focusing on what needs to occur that say. Set your mind on what you are attempting to achieve and where you want to go. If it’s a God-honoring goal and you are following His lead – believe that he wants you to achieve it. And you will begin to see your heart’s desire fulfilled.
Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. – Psalm 37:3-4
