Change Your Focus

1 Truly God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. 2 But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled, my steps had nearly slipped. 3 For I was envious of the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. ~ Psalms 73:1–19

Today, we Christians have taken our eyes off of the eternal.

    • We no longer look to Jesus
    • We no longer stand on His promises
    • We no longer rest secure in His Word
    • We no longer take comfort in, “Thus sayeth the LORD.”

When we look to Hollywood and celebrities for guidance, when we look to our politicians and our representative for hope, or when we completely abandoned Jesus and His promises, we will be greatly disappointed because the majority of the time, the politician does not necessarily have our best interest in at heart.

I wish the Church would get back to the Biblical truths instead of getting in bed with the enemy.

The Psalm we just read is a prime example of the Church today. We’ve fallen spiritually asleep because we are too caught up in the tv shows, Hollywood, and the rich and famous that we seem to think that they are our best friends, and we are prepared to fight tooth and nail to defend them.

Christians are prepared to get up at 3 O’Clock in the morning to watch the royal wedding but can’t get up for 10 am to go to church. Hmmm!

The world and all of its delicacies is constantly trying to woo us over. We see them driving the nice cars, and some have their own jet. They live in huge mansions with exquisite Olympic pools and beautiful gardens. And it’s easy to get lost in all the noise, but we have to stand firm. We have to focus on the Almighty. We have to turn our attention to God because it’s only through Him that we have life. If we don’t, we’ll remain in a spiritual slumber that will lead to a spiritual death.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Change Your Focus.
