I AM your focus. Come away with me to the secret place, away from the swirling mists of confusion, the distracting voices. Come away with me. Sit at my feet, fix your gaze on me and let me speak to your heart. Fix your gaze on mine. When you fix your eyes on mine, the chaos, the confusion, and the negative voices will fade. My voice will become more audible to you.
Shut the door, shut out the voices that clamour for your attention. Do not allow anything to pull your eyes away from mine. Look deep into my eyes and let me fill you with my peace and my strength.
Looking into my eyes changes everything. Looking into my eyes fills you with courage and boldness to face today. One look can transform your day. Not a glance, not a quick look but a long lingering look.
I am your focus. I am your very great reward. Come and drink deeply of me.
To engage with this word and access the promises, a question you could ask is, “God, how do you want me to close the door, to disengage from the noise, in order to fix my gaze on you?”
Matthew 6:6 NLT
But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.
John 7:37-38 NIV
On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, ‘Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.
