I had the opportunity last summer to share some encouragement at my first speaking engagement. The focus of the message is one I want to share with you over the next few weeks. I asked the women the question that I’m going to ask today: What is Your Focus? Life’s Problems or God’s Promises?
We will always be dealing with problems of one kind or another. We’ve talked recently about that fact. But we have a choice. Do we want to live focused on each problem, one after the other, or do we want to live focused on the promises God gives us to combat each and every problem?
Financial issues? There’s a PROMISE from God for that. Health issues? There’s a PROMISE from God for that. Relationship issues? There’s a PROMISE from God for that. Job issues? There’s a PROMISE from God for that.
There is a promise in the Bible for every issue we face. And when we speak God’s PROMISES back to Him in prayer, it changes things. It makes God happy. It pleases our Father in Heaven. Who doesn’t want to please God? I know I do!
So … my question for you today is: Where do you keep your focus? On the problems that will always pop up in life? Or on the PROMISES from God that are readily available to combat those problems?
