5 Reasons Why Focusing on God Matters!


What the Bible says about focusing on God?

At the beginning of the year, there is so much to focus on work, family, and business, but focusing on God is beneficial to your spiritual growth and jumpstart for this year. Besides, when you focus on God, you become more connected with Him. You also learn to trust in Him and rely on Him for guidance and direction in your life( Proverbs 3:5-6). Additionally, when you focus on God, spiritual growth happens.




Proverbs 5:1-2- "My son, stay focused; listen to the wisdom I have gained; give attention to what I have learned about life So you may be able to make sensible judgments and speak with knowledge."


God is the great comforter. When you focus on him, he will bring peace and joy into your life! The following five benefits are ways that focusing can make us happier: We become more connected with God because when we rely heavily upon Him for guidance or any other need in our lives, there's no doubt about what direction He wants us to go - always towards success. Focusing brings deep spiritual insights from spending time close to himself. It allows individuals to bridge barriers between themselves to understand each other better. The connection created through prayer creates an atmosphere free of distractions.

The benefits of focusing on God Matters!

  • God is with you -God is always with you. When you focus on Him, He will guide and protect you. Psalm 23 says, "Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me."

  • Relationship Matters - You will have a closer relationship with Him. James said, "Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, sinners; and purify your hearts, double-minded people( James 4:8)."!

  • Trust Matters - You will be able to trust Him more. "You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in you ( Isaiah 26:3)." As you keep your mind focused on God, he will save you.

What are the benefits of focusing on God?


God is the source of all things. He's our provider, healer, and sustainer! There are so many benefits that come from focusing on God in your life - here I will discuss five major ones for you:

1) When you focus on God, you can be confident that he will provide for your needs (Jeremiah 29:11).

2) Focusing on God helps us avoid sin (Joshua 1:8).

3) Focusing on God first-When we make Him our priority; it changes how we live out every other responsibility in life (Matthew 6:33-34).

I'm so grateful for the opportunity to share with you today how focusing on God has made such a huge difference in my life. When we focus on Him, He will provide for our needs and help us avoid sin. The more time we spend focused on him, the better it is for every other responsibility in our lives, including family and work! Focusing on Him brings peace and joy into your life too! It's not always easy, but everything else falls into place when we do what he asks of us. We've been given this incredible gift from God - don't waste it by living distractedly or without purpose! Spend some time reading His Word each day, often praying to know his voice.
