Where Are Your Eyes Focused?

It shall come about if you ever forget the Lord your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I testify against you today that you will surely perish. Like the nations that the Lord  makes to perish before you, so you shall perish; because you would not listen to the voice of the Lord your God.
Deuteronomy 8:19-20

The last couple of days my heart has been heavily burdened for the lost and for the church – especially those who believe in their salvation but are living in fear of the happenings around them instead of in fear of God. Is it because they have forgotten their God or perhaps believe in a God that is not supported by Scripture?

Where are your eyes focused? Is it on the daily events around you? COVID? Deterioration of society? Worry for your future?

Or are your eyes focused on God? The only peace we can encounter when all around us is falling apart. Our Prince of Peace.

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us;
And the government will rest on His shoulders;
And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

He has come. The government rests on His shoulders. He is mighty over all. Seek His counsel and His ways. He is our peace. He is coming again.

Do you trust in God? Do you trust His plan? Are you seeking Him with a repentant heart? Does He abide in you? A repentant heart and the residing of the Holy Spirit in us will display the fruit of the Spirit:

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23

Now is the time.

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the Lord,
And He will have compassion on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6-7

🌹Seek the Lord’s compassion today through repentance and seeking His face continually. Where are your eyes focused?

Obedience

Observing
Christ
Unto
Sanctification

On the glorious splendor of Your majesty And on Your wonderful works, I will meditate.
Men shall speak of the power of Your awesome acts,
And I will tell of Your greatness.
They shall eagerly utter the memory of Your abundant goodness

And will shout joyfully of Your righteousness.
They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom
And talk of Your power;
To make known to the sons of men Your mighty acts
And the glory of the majesty of Your kingdom.

My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,
And all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.
Psalm 145:5‭-‬7‭, ‬11‭-‬12‭, ‬21 NASB

When you focus on Jesus you can’t help but overflow with obedience to Him. You long to tell the story of a King who humbled Himself and came to earth to live amongst His creation and then in obedience to the Father, He died on the cross. And the Father raised Him to His rightful place, back upon His throne.

Let us not forget that Jesus is still on His throne today and He deserves our focus of praise and our obedience to tell the world that He lives.

🌹Who will you make your focus today?

Continually Seeking Him,

Forever Focused

I will extol You, my God, O King, And I will bless Your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You, And I will praise Your name forever and ever.
Psalms 145:1‭-‬2 NASB

David made a commitment to bless and praise our Lord’s name everyday forever and ever. Are you familiar with David’s life? It wasn’t a bed of roses. He spent many years running from a king who wanted him dead, suffered the loss of two sons, made some poor choices in his life and yet he is going to praise God daily!?

Why? Because He is God.

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
Psalms 145:13 NASB

Do you have any reason not to praise and bless our Lord today? Tomorrow? Forever?

🌹Focus your praise on Him starting today. It will change your perspective, disposition, and attitude.

Continually Seeking Him,

Sharon
