Topic: Focus On Him [Tuesday, December 27th]
After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward (Genesis 15:1).
God desires to have your attention. He knows if He has your attention, He can lead and guide you in the destiny He’s planned for you. He knows what’s best for you, and what your life should be. There’s therefore nothing for you to worry over, except to live confidently and joyfully in His Word every day. Living in the Word will cause you to walk in the inheritance and destiny He’s ordained for you.
Focus on the Lord. Give Him your all. Delight yourself in Him, and in the fact that He lives in you. He’s everything you need. To have Him is to have everything. In Genesis 15:1, the Lord said to Abraham, “…I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.” That means “I’m all you need; in me, you have everything!” All you need in life is Christ, for Christ is everything.
Let Him be all that your heart longs for. Let Him be all that thrills and satisfies your soul. Never allow anything distract or take your focus away from serving Him as you should. Set your attention and affection on Him and on the things He cares about. Be a soul winner. Your affection shouldn’t be on the transient things of this world: “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:1-2).
All that you are, and all that you have, are in Him. Your greatness is in Him. He’s your reason for being; therefore, focus on Him and live for Him.
Dear Father, I worship and praise you for giving me insight, understanding, and the ability to set my heart and focus on you to see things only from your perspective. I serve you with all sincerity, commitment, and a wholehearted devotion, for you’re everything to me; you’re my strength, shield and exceeding great reward; I rejoice in you forever, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
