Psalm 16:8-9

8 I have set the LORD always before me, because He is at my right hand. I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices, my flesh also will rest in hope.

Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart does good like medicine But a broken spirit dries the bone.

If you\’re a driver and you are driving a vehicle, your focus and eyes shall be on the road as to avoid any slightest mistake that may lead to accident. The same level of focus is required in a play of baseball. In the game of baseball playing , one of the principles of playing this game is to remain focus on the trajectory of the baseball as soon as the field team known as the pitcher throws the ball, a player on the batting team must focus on the tracjectory of the ball so that he will not miss the hitting of the ball. The batting team who must hit the ball into the field must position himself ready to hit without missing with a bat to the field to allow the players run the bases.

Focus should be our main issue now because we have find ourselves in a New Normal. A new normal is a time where the unusual has carefully becomes the norm. Since the onslaught of COVID-19 Pandemic in our system things have changed including way of lives and living. In this storm we must learn how to Navigate like a sailor in a high sea navigating his ship when he meets with storms on a sea.

\”You lead me in the path of life, I experience absolute joy in your presence, you always gives me sheer delight\” (Psalm 16:11).

When you focus on the LORD, He will grant you the joy and pleasure of remaining in His presence whereby all your challenges becomes easy to overcome.

If we focus on the wrong values, we are bound to crash. According to the psalmist when we keep our eyes on the Lord we will not be Shaken . Christ is the goal of life, He must be our major focus in this New Normal so that we can skillfully navigate our ship in time of storm . Let your heart not be troubled, be strong and face your challenges for Isaiah 43: 19 says – Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

Clarity of mind should be of our main concern if we must stay focus on God and this requires efforts , discipline and determination not to allow yourself to be consumed by worries and anxiety. Isaiah 33:6 says \”And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure\”.

\”Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not depend on your own understanding\” (Proverbs 3:5). In this time and season we should keep our eyes on the LORD not on our challenges for we will not be Shaken in times of storm. we are entering Christmas season be very prayerful with heart of Thanksgiving to the Lord who has been faithful to us.
