One of the most popular daytime shows is The View. If you’ve ever watched the show, you know that there are 5 women who sit around a table and discuss the most interesting topics, the latest headlines, and the breaking news. At the end of each show, one of the ladies says, “Take a Little Time to enjoy the View.”
What does your view look like? Or what do you have in view? Proverbs 17:24 says, “A discerning person keeps wisdom in view, but a fool’s eyes wander to the ends of the earth.” One of the problems that many of us face in life is that we tend to focus on things that lack importance. Your future is a product of what you focus on. If you fail to focus on the right things it could derail your destiny. Perhaps for many, it is not a lack of talent, skill , anointing, or opportunity that is keeping us from reaching our dreams. In all reality, we have been innately gifted with the ability to do what we need to do to reach our dreams, we have what we already need to make it. 2 Peter 1:3, says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:” God has already given us the tools! We have to admit that the Lord has blessed us with the gifting and fortitude to reach our dreams. We have had chances to elevate ourselves and access opportunities to reach our dreams. So what is it that has up not achieving our full potential?
Let’s be completely honest, many people never rise to the levels of success that has been reserved for them because of one central problem, lack of focus. Many times we miss our dreams because we are so consumed with everyone and everything else that we can’t concentrate on what is right in front of us. Focus allows us to see how to use our gifts, access the blessings of God, and seize the opportunities as they arise. When we are focused we are able to keep in view the ultimate goal, and not let our eyes wander anytime a distraction comes by. The wise person remembers having varied interests is good, being diverse is admirable, but always have what is most important steadily in view. It will be the difference between reaching the places of God and continuing to run in circles. So today, take a little time to enjoy the view! You might be amazed at what you see coming!
