Focus on God

But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Jude 20-23

Jude is telling us to focus on God. He tells the reader to build up yourself. Build up yourself on what? Books you read, movies you see, conversations you hear? No, build on your faith – your faith in God and pray to the Holy Spirit. Wow, our focus needs to be on God and what He wants from our lives, not what we want.

We need to be praying and asking God what He would have us do. Seek God and follow His leading in all aspects of your life. Meet Him in the morning before you start the day.

Jude then goes on to say, keep yourselves in the love of God. The more you read the word of God, the more you realize it is not about us but about Him. All of our time, energy and being should be focused on the One who gave all for us. Is it easy, absolutely not, but it is possible.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13

As you walk your daily path today look around to see the beauty of God’s creation. Focus on Him and the love He shows to you.

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39

Have a blessed day,
