One of our daughters has been having some photos taken over the last few weeks, and now and then, I will take a picture of her behind the scenes but unfortunately, some of these pictures and videos have been blurry.
Looking at them; I’m reminded of the importance of having eyes to see clearly. When you take a photograph, it’s essential to have a clean lens, know your subject and have everything in focus; otherwise, the result will be that the picture you take is blurry or not what you expected. It’s about fixing our focus and seeing clearly.
Our life and future decisions are much like taking a good photograph and making sure we have a clear view and an uncluttered heart. A good question to ask ourselves is, “What am I focusing on and magnifying in my life? Are there things that obstruct or limit my view of what God wants to reveal to me?
In a sense, whatever we zoom in on will be what appears the biggest and have the loudest voice in our lives. But we get to choose what and who those things are. .
Today take time to see and:
1. Regularly think about what you are magnifying in your life?
2. Ask Jesus for wisdom as to whether the picture you are seeing is accurate or does your “lens” and viewpoint need cleaning off of any untruths, blind spots, or distractions.
An unclear focus can easily lead us away from the life God has planned for us and steal our clarity and enthusiasm for life so ensure your eyes are on Jesus. He will help keep your focus clean, clear, and with the best view when you do?
3. Ask God to help you zoom in on Him and magnify His best life for you every day so you know what to focus on and believe for!
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.” (Psalms 32:8 ESV)
“My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He will pluck my feet of the net.” (Psalm 25:15 ESV)
“Therefore, since you have been raised with Christ, strive for the things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” (Colossians 3:1 NLT)
Prayer: Lord, please help me honestly look at my life and see if there are any areas where I need to clean the “lens” and become more clearly zoomed in on you. In Jesus name Amen.
