“I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be SHAKEN...Therefore my whole being rejoices....You make known to me the path of life; in YOUR PRESENCE there is FULNESS OF JOY; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:8,9, 11
Focus is a key to surviving and thriving in life, marriage and family, work, school, and even spiritually. When you lose focus it is easy to drift, go of course, make compromises, and give up. With this pandemic going on it is so easy to lose focus and become distracted, discouraged and drift off course.
We need to stay focused on God, His Word, and His Will, if we want to get through this season.
David tells us: I have set the Lord always before me. I am staying focused on the Lord. My eyes are on Him. I see Him, that He is at my right hand, I am not going to be shaken. I am not going to collapse, fall apart or give up, because the Lord is with me. What a promise for the child of God!
David says: “Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices...”. When you focus on the Lord, and know that He is with you, you can still rejoice and praise the Lord! Paul says: “Rejoice in the Lord always, and again, I say rejoice.”
David tells us: “in Your presence is fullness of joy, and at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” It does not say I. Church there is fulness of Joy, but in Your presence there is fullness of joy and pleasures.
Today, stay focused on the Lord, begin to rejoice in Him and spend time in His presence and watch your joy increase!
I love my ICC family, and miss seeing you!
