This devotion was inspired by the Soul H2O Radio & Podcast Episode with Melanie Stevenson, Bringing Your Soul Into Focus. Hope you get refreshed from both Soul H2O media offerings. 🙂
Bringing Your Soul Into Focus
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. ~ 3 John 1:2 NKJV
I was first prescribed to wear glasses in Grade 10. Since then, I’ve started going yearly, for an eye exam; you know, that enjoyable experience when an optician or ophthalmologist shines the brightest flashlight known to mankind in your eyes… ya, that one. Then, there’s a part when the doctor swings the phoropter in front of you, a big lens machine and through a series of examples, shows you two different lens prescriptions and you’re supposed to decipher which helps you better read the Snellen Eye Chart. Everywhere, doctors ask their patients, “#1 or #2?”
You Need To Focus
Your answer is the process by which the eye doctor determines your prescription. Doctors keep asking you this question until finally you can see clearly, when everything is brought into focus. It’s interesting with all their years of schooling and expensive instrumentation, the doctors cannot prescribe you the proper lenses if you don’t properly discern which lenses bring your eyesight into focus.
You have to focus, to decipher what brings you focus.
You’d be wise to begin regular examinations on your soul, like you do with our eyes. You need to start bringing your soul: your mind, will & emotions into focus, in order to live healthy. If you’re going to live out today’s verse and prosper as your soul prospers… then, you’re going to have to direct your focus on your soul in order to experience soul health that leads to health in all areas of your life.
Bring your soul into focus, as clear as an eye-exam and make it healthy!
Father… I ask that you would help guide me in the process of bringing my soul into focus. It doesn’t come naturally but I know Your Word is telling me I can and even prosper in it! I thank you for giving me the ability to prosper in health of my body, soul and spirit! In Jesus Name…Amen
