What are we focused on in this moment? Are we being present? This must be what we consistently come back to.
It is only when we come back to this that we are able to be right where God wants us. He wants us squarely focused on Him. He does not need our attention to be anywhere else to accomplish what He has for us.
This is how the world gets us distracted and living by the flesh. Our attention begins to be set on what is next and on how the rest of the world is getting by and getting things done. Then we lose the very place we need to be focused.
When our thoughts are focused on Him we are able to tackle anything that is before us. The world would have us overwhelmed with where to start. God would have our attention on Him so that He can direct our path.
Romans 8:31 NIV
Considerations for your planner:
- Write down what you are focusing on right now. Is God first or the afterthought?
A Prayer for Our Community:
Father God, Thank You for Your grace and mercy over our lives. Thank You for helping us to come back to You for as many times we do not keep the focus on You. Help us to bring our attention to the present. We want to feel You at work in our lives and we know we can gain Your direction more when we are present with You. Create a strength in us that helps us to live for You and not the world. Amen.
