Focus on What God Wants

Description

Focus all you can on following God’s plan for your life, no matter what others say or think.

Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now He has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in His sight, without blemish and free from accusation (Colossians 1:21-22).

THINK

In our performance-based minds, life is all about impressing certain people. In other words, we find ourselves playing “The Name Game,” hoping we can win approval and acceptance. But in reality, the victory we are seeking is already ours; we’re already in with the greatest Name there is! We don’t need to play to the crowds; we only need to play for an audience of One. And that One is Jesus.

Are you spending your time, talent, energy and resources trying to impress people? Or are you focusing all you can on following God’s plan for your life, no matter what others say or think?

PRAY

Ask God for the discipline and endurance, not to impress those around you, but to remain obedient to His will for your life.

ACT

In each exchange you have with those around you, stop and ask yourself, “Am I more concerned with what this person thinks? Or am I focusing on what God wants me to do in this moment?”
