Single Focus – Undistracted

“How Beautiful you are, my beloved, how beautiful! Your eyes behind your veil are like doves…” Song of Solomon 4:1 (NLT)

The Lover is marveling over His beloved having “dove eyes.” The unique thing about the dove is its singular vision. Meaning it must move its head to look to the right or the left. Otherwise, a dove looks straight ahead and is only able to focus on one thing at a time. In essence, Solomon is saying his beloved “only has eyes for him!”

Mules and horses wear blinders because they are easily distracted, but a dove was created to look straight ahead. When the Bridegroom said to the bride “your eyes behind your veil are like doves,” He’s saying you look at me with a singleness of heart. You are not distracted by what’s happening on the right or the left. You keep your focus centered on Me.

Little foxes come to steal and destroy your relationship with God (S/S 2:15). Don’t be busy minding other vineyards leaving your own vineyard to ruin. Have dove eyes fastened securely on the Lord. With singleness of vision, He will lead you according to His plans and purpose. Love Him with your obedience! Allow your spirit to become ever so sensitive to His still small voice guiding your steps. Stay close to Him sensing His will for you. With a tender glance, He will guide you in the right direction instructing and teaching you in the way you should go while His eye is on you (Ps.32.8).

Develop dove eyes…a singular focus on God alone! Once your gaze is fixed, you will sense a greater awareness of His presence. He will minister to you in very special ways lifting you far above the cares of this world. He will satisfy the deep longings of your heart. Quenching your cravings for things of this world creating a greater awareness of Him inspiring you to abide in His very existence.

Singleness of vision is seeking the Lord no matter your fears, your foes or the battles within. You’ll be gazing on the beauty of the Lord (Ps.27:1-4). The Lord exchanges His crown of beauty for your ashes. His oil of joy replaces life’s mourning’s and a spirit of despair is dressed with His garment of praise (Is.61).

“Father, give us “dove eyes,” which inspire singleness of focus looking steadily and intently on You alone, so we never miss Your very best.”


For His Glory
