It is easy to focus on what is happening around us. However, if we focus on it too long, we can become anxious, frustrated, fearful, and stressed out, which can negatively affect the body.
Paraphrasing, Matthew 6:25-33 says, take no thought for your life what you need to eat or wear because your Heavenly Father knows what you need. We seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and everything will be added to us.
We should go to God in prayer and in the word of God about any challenge or situation we encounter.
Our spiritual Father Abraham is a great example to follow in focusing on God and seeking the kingdom’s way of doing things.
Romans 4:19-21 King James Version: 19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
Abraham focused on the promise of God, not the current circumstance. We should follow his example of growing strong in faith and giving glory to God. Abraham received the promised child. Faith comes by hearing the word of God (Romans 10:7), which means it is a daily thing. David in 1 Samuel 17 focused on the reward he would receive, not the giant. He also glorified God and remembered how God brought him out of past situations. David defeated the giant.
My Aunt Mary spoke a few Sundays ago on a message titled ‘Defeated the Giant.” She said something that has stuck with me to strengthen in my faith: “Losers focus on what they are going through, but winners focus on where they are going to.’ That sums it up for us. God always causes us to triumph through Him (2 Corinthians 2:14). We run the race of life looking unto Jesus, who is the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:1–2)
Your current state does not consider; that God will deliver!
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for all your promises being “Yes” and “Amen.” I am a winner because God always causes me to triumph through you. I do not grow weak in my faith but stronger, giving glory to God. I am fully persuaded that what you promised is done. I repent for letting situations define my outcome, living in doubt and unbelief. God, just like you feed the birds, you care for me. I thank you for your finished work. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
