“Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go.”
- Where we fix our eyes generally ends up being our destiny. The command from God is to not look to the right or to the left, but to focus on Him. Turning to the right or left, or straying in any way, is movement away from God. What seems innocent can become devastating. Success is defined as, “achieving a desired outcome”, and if we fix our eyes on God, we are promised that we will be successful in finding Him.
- What is distracting your focus on God?

James 4:8 “Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.“
Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”
