Out of Focus
I heard the Spirit of the Lord say to me that many in the body of Christ have not stepped into their purpose because they are out of focus. Everything is blurry. They don’t know what the next step is. They don’t know where to apply for a job. They don’t know where to serve at their church. They don’t know if their marriage is worth fighting for. They don’t know whether or not they are supposed to move. They don’t know. I want to show you how to get your life back into focus. I pray that this blog helps many of you move into your destiny.
I prophesy that many that have been stuck are about to become unstuck.
1. Limit the number of people whom you are going to for advice.
You need at the most 2 people speaking into your life. Everyone is going to have an opinion. Find trusted individuals you can rely on who will be honest with you and not just say what you want to hear. You don’t need everyone’s approval. You need God’s approval.
2. Spend time in prayer and begin to fast.
Without prayer and fasting you won’t know what God wants. Fasting makes us sensitive to what the Spirit is saying. We must also learn how to pray. Praying is more than just reading our wishlist to God. Take time and be still in God’s presence. God is speaking. Are you listening? Be still and know that He is God. Get silent before the Lord. Turn off your cell phone. Leave your laptop at home. Log out of Facebook. Contemplate on His Word and pray the Scriptures. I connect with God in nature. I hear Him the best when I am outdoors.
3. Don’t listen to your flesh.
Just because it looks good and feels good doesn’t mean it is God’s will. Just because it is easy and looks like a miracle doesn’t mean it is from God. We must listen with our Spirit. We must crucify our flesh. We must deny what we want. We must die to our flesh and seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness. Everything else will be added unto us. If you give it up now God will give you something better later.
4. Check your heart.

Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Are you gossiping? Are you bitter? Have you truly forgiven from your heart? You may have in your mind but if you haven’t you must return to that place of repentance and wait in God’s presence until you are touched by God. We must bring our heart before the Lord and allow Him to make our hearts pure.
We all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. Be honest… what sins are you struggling with? Ask the Holy Spirit to convict you of your sins. When He does be quick to repent. It is the kindness of God that leads us to repentance. He loves you just as you are but loves you too much to leave you the same. It is ok to not be ok. It is just not ok to stay not ok.
6. Develop a healthy self image.
Do you know who you are in Christ? Your identity matters. When you are around others you matter. You are important. You are a child of God. If Jesus would have had to go to the cross just for you He would have. He loves you so much. You have to love yourself right where you are at. If you can’t love yourself with your quirks, your weight, your accent, your family, then you won’t love yourself later. God placed you in His family. You are adopted. You aren’t an orphan anymore. Accept yourself. Love yourself. You are not a mistake. God has a plan and purpose for your life.
7. Become mission minded.
You may not feel qualified to be used by God. God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called. The truth is that God is already using you. He wants to use you more. The mission is clearly found in His Word. Our mission is to fulfill the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. Everything in our life needs to bring glory to Jesus. Everything is for Him. The Father is looking for worshipers. He is looking for those who will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.
I prophesy fresh vision is coming to you now in Jesus name!
It is time to refocus. It is time for the blurriness to go away. His Word is a lamp unto your feet. A man makes His plans but the Lord directs His path. Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will direct your paths.
