Today, I will look at God and see Him working
and NOT focus my attention on the people in my life that are causing me to be distracted!
And by distracted I mean – The ones that say negative things, or act negatively to me.
The devil is trying to take my focus off my God and His TRUTHS with self-pity and pride. I don’t have time to worry about how they treated me badly because I am so busy seeking God’s word and learning about all the amazing promises He has given me that I am not even angry or sad. I’m too busy for that nonsense.
I am in the boat! The storm (whatever situation I am in) is all around me and I am being tossed around getting hurt by one word or action, then the other word and I am getting mad, I’m feeling hurt. I am looking at the very ones who are hurting me and they know what they are doing. But in the midst of the storm I have to focus on Jesus! I have to see Him and be at peace. No, the storm hasn’t changed! It’s still raging on but I am at peace. Jesus will calm the storm. But until then I have to see His face. Peter – as he was walking on the water got distracted by the storm once again and started sinking. So, I have to know that the devil doesn’t want me to be at peace. He is going to throw something in my direction to see if I will switch my gaze to him. I have to be on guard and ready and at the same time be soaking in God’s peace.
