Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; then stick to the path and stay safe. Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil. (Proverbs 4:25-27)
I drafted several thoughts last night to blog but timing did not feel right for those topics. So, I send encouragement and a reminder to not allow the world to soak us in its germ fill sponge.
We must keep our mind shampooed and conditioned with biblical commandments to form our character to be Christlike and to continue leading us in the direction of godliness. This prevents handing over to the devil an open-door policy to overwhelm our thoughts and to cloud our spiritual vision.
Where is your focus today? If it is somewhere other than on GOD, then it is time to stop managing time and start managing focus. We rob ourselves of peace when we focus on today’s frustrations instead of focusing on Jesus’ promise to prepare a place for the prepared.
People will attempt to tyrannize us but GOD is greater than people and the challenges we face. We can focus on positive solutions in the midst of difficult times instead of letting the world embed us in ungodliness. We must stay the course using the Bible as an eternal life support system to soak up that which is crucial to the salvation of our soul.
