Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 36 – 37
Verse of the Day: Psalm 37:1 – 4 – “Fret not thyself because of evil-doers, Neither be thou envious against them that work unrighteousness. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. Trust in Jehovah, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on his faithfulness. Delight thyself also in Jehovah; And he will give thee the desires of thy heart.”
It is so easy for us to put our focus on the wrong things. If we spend our time looking at the circumstances around us we get discouraged and dissatisfied. God reminds us to place our focus on Him and Him alone. When we are looking intently at the right person, all other things fade into the background. They fade out of focus and we concentrate on the One who is true and right.
Prayer: May I keep my eyes on You, O Lord. May I focus only on You and You alone. I so easily get distracted by my surroundings and end up worrying. Free me from this. Amen.
