Focused on Him
Deuteronomy 31:6 – Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you.
In our everyday lives it’s easy to get distracted. Things like our job, friends, health, family and money can become the focal point of our attention without us even realising it, especially if one of them isn’t what you want it to be. For example, losing a job can consume our thoughts because it will have an impact on finances and potentially family. Or a struggling relationship could cause us to worry more and make impulsive decisions.
But God wants to be that focal point in our lives. He wants to be the center of our attention – our thoughts and our eyes should be fixated on who He is. He promises that when you keep your eyes on Him, He will lead the way.
He’s the one thing in our lives that will always be stable – nothing can change Him or His love for us. He will always be right there with you. He will always be striding ahead of you, showing you the way you should go. He will never let you down and He will never leave you. He is a powerful God, who is mighty to save. He is able to resurrect a dead relationship. He is able to provide finances when they are lacking. He is able to find a way for a new job. He is able to impact your friendships. His will will be done in His own time.
Have faith and keep your eyes focused on Him. Don’t allow your mind to get distracted by earthly things that you can’t change.
