Focus: The Precision of Victory

Thank GOD that light triumphs over darkness, that He is able to lift up the voice of light over darkness. In Ezekiel Chapter 22, He sends Ezekiel to show he house of Israel "all her abominations". A good question is how could Israel have so many? Quite simply the same reason why there are so many today: The Lack of focus that plagues many; Not putting GOD first, Making idols and other voices before GOD. The chapter includes a long play list of all the wrong things Israel has done. How they continue to make a mockery of themselves taking for granted the grace that GOD has over them.  When we lose focus and sight of GOD, wait let me change that we never "Lose" focus we simply place it elsewhere.
We can have a tendency of putting focus on other things. Within the simplicity of scientific law, it is stated that: An object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. Lack of focus brings a lack of balance. We need the structure and the organization of the Lord for our daily lives, for our blessing. In the perilousness and the amount of noise in this world that doesn't attribute to the glory of GOD, we can't afford not to focus on Him. It seems that especially in this age it's too easy to lose sight.  Our focus is everything. When we put our focus on the voice and the will of GOD we can effectively block those things which are useless, unnecessary, even degrading out. Focus promotes fertility and productivity in our lives.  It seems as a punishment in vs 21 when it states:
"Yes, I will gather you and blow on you with the fire of My wrath, and you shall be melted in its midst."
 but to "gather" is a good thing, it's a bringing together, to organize. And "blow on you with the fire of My wrath, and you shall be melted in its midst." Fire is what purifies and what makes gold, GOLD! The melting is what brings everything that was once a separate ingredient together. There is power in unity. Even though the chapter ends on the note of:
 "Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads,” says the Lord GOD."
The account is Ezekiel's, In the fact that GOD sent Ezekiel to be a voice on his behalf is the very act of love and mercy that He is showing. GOD is a GOD of communication. He speaks always, When the time comes His voices is lifted above all others, that's when we really need to hear it. When we are lost without a clear focus sometimes it's best to be recompensed, to reap what we've sewn, so we can learn. The focus on GOD is what gives life, no other voice. In Ezekiel GOD sent a voice. But in the savior's death and resurrection, we have direct access to GOD through Jesus Christ. The voice of light continually speaks out of the darkness. Let us continue to listen. Focus is everything. Let us focus on the Lord for all glory and for all victory.


*Ezekiel 22
