During the workout, having a clear mind is essential. Athletes who experience brain fog may struggle to make quick decisions, focus on technique, and execute movements with the necessary speed and accuracy, which could compromise their performance and put them at risk of injury.
There are various ways to increase our clarity as competitors. We have to get enough sleep, drink enough water, eat healthy, and avoid distractions. When we do these things, there is less of a chance of experiencing brain fog and limiting our progress.
We want to think clearly for Christ as well. For Jesus, clarity means having the ability to see beyond the surface of things and discerning the spiritual realm that others may not be able to perceive.
In Colossians 3:2, it says, “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” This Scripture is telling us to focus on goals, pursuits, and ideas that align with the Lord’s plan for us, his followers.
Driving in the fog can be a daunting experience. It can be hard to see the road ahead, and there’s a risk of getting lost or even crashing. In the same way, spiritual fog can make it difficult for us to navigate our way through life. When we choose to ignore what God wants for us and focus on the things that the world and today’s culture offer, we’re driving in spiritual fog.
Spiritual fog can ultimately prevent us from navigating towards Jesus. It’s like trying to drive in the fog without any headlights. We need to rely on God’s Word and guidance to help us find our way. We want to avoid this fog at all costs because it can lead us down the wrong path.
The Devil is the source of spiritual fog. He wants to keep us from following God’s plan for our lives. He wants to distract us with things that are temporary and will not bring us true fulfillment.
