Lesson 4

Q: What is the secret to maintaining spiritual focus?

A: No matter who you are or what kind of personality you have or even your positive and negative traits, you have to train yourself in order to maintain your spiritual focus. Most of us need someone to help keep us accountable – whether they reach out to you or you report to them every day, once a week, once a month – and we all need someone who is spiritually sound that we can turn to when we have questions or concerns. 

The best place to start on this journey is in prayer to God. He is our ultimate source of strength and help (Hebrews 4:16), so start by asking Him to send you the right people to help you get focused and teach you correctly, then you’ll be able to continue to grow and maintain your spiritual focus. 

One of those people should be your husband. You should be able to look to him as a primary source of your spiritual focus. (1 Corinthians 14:34-35)

Your husband should also be the one who helps cleanse your focus. (Ephesians 5:25-28)

Below are some Scriptures to help you get started and several things that I have used throughout the years:

  • Psalm 46:10 – “Be still, and know that I am God.”
  • Romans 12:2 – Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
  • Proverbs 4:23 – Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.
  • Psalm 119:105 – Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
  • James 4:7-8a – Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.
  • 2 Corinthians 10:4-6 – For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. 5 We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, 6 being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.
  • 1 Timothy 4:7-8 – Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; 8 for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.
  • Ask yourself questions like – “Where have I seen God today?” (Tell someone else the answer.)”What do I need to work on in my own life?” (Whatever it is, make a plan. Take small steps, pray before you take each step, and be patient with yourself. Change takes time and much effort.)”Who can I encourage and how can I encourage them?” (Don’t hesitate. Go do it!)”What or who should I be thanking God for?” (Take time to thank Him now.)
  • Practice spiritual disciplines or training. Read 1 Timothy 4:7-8 again. It is a reminder of why we should train ourselves for godliness. Here are some spiritual disciplines to practice: Praying all kinds prayers – Thanksgiving/Being grateful – Fasting – Studying the Bible – Memorizing Scripture – Being silent – Listening to others without interrupting – Singing spiritually uplifting songs – Being alone (solace) – Giving generously (time, money, food, etc.) – Sharing what you learn (teach a Bible class, post it on social media, start a Bible study with your friends or your kids and their friends)

Honestly, this is a short list, comparatively. There are many more things you can do. The important thing is to start somewhere and keep going. Staying spiritually focused is one of the most important things you can do, because it affects your entire life – in this life and in eternity!
