6 ways to bring our focus back to God

When we're not focused on the things above, we're distracted by the things below ( Matthew  12:30 ).  The evil one’s only agenda is to destroy everything that is of God. He ensnares us with worldly focus with the intent to pollute our minds and blind us from the truth, keeping us stagnant and blocking us from our blessings and a true connection with our Father  (Revelation 18:4). But,   f ortunately for us, we have a merciful God.  Here  are some ways to bring our focus back to Him when we fall short. Daily prayer time.  C hoose a time out of your day to spend with God every day. Know His words. Read at least one chapter a day from the Bible.  S ecular music fast.
