Focus

by Gail Rodgers

For you are great and do marvelous deeds; You alone are God. Teach me Your way, Lord, that I may rely on Your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.” (Psalm 86:10 & 11)

Undivided. Fully committed. The dictionary definition of undivided is “whole, exclusive, not partial”. Do you find it a challenge on a busy morning to keep your heart focused with awe on your great God and all He is? Is His faithfulness front and center in your heart and mind as you step out into your day? So often our hearts tend toward being divided in our focus and in our faithfulness and we easily forget that His great faithfulness and His lavish love only has our very best interest at heart.

I love how God can be counted on to remind me throughout my day that He is going ahead of me in every task. His mercy and goodness will follow me as I follow Him
(Psalm 23).

Following Him wholeheartedly through the day is not another chore on the “to do” list. As we pray the words of this verse, “teach me Your way, O Lord”, He comes and reveals His faithfulness as we walk. In turn, our hearts are moved toward fuller devotion to our great and marvelous God. And we are filled with awe.

O Lord, “Teach me Your way that I may rely on Your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may stand in awe of Your name.” Amen.

    As Jesus walked with me and so am I with Jesus i saw life with full of challenges but because God is faithful He always carries and every time i am in distress i learn now to look unto Jesus Hebrews 12:2

  2. “Your Word was to me the joy, and rejoice of my heart”….Thank You, Lord, for the guidance of Your Word….so inspiring, pure and eternal truth.

    Seeking the covering of the Lord for us, through prayer in the day break is what one should do as the first task. We should step into a new day battle-ready. Spiritual warfare takes a lot of shades and shapes we do not expect. An important aspect in our spiritual warfare is to take care of our own member-the second mind-who tries to distract us at some crucial tines. Keeping Jesus in front of us is the precaution we have to take every day.
    Thank you.
