God Wants To Be The Focus And Center Of Our Lives

    God Wants To Be The Focus And Center Of Our Lives

    More than anything!

    God wants to be the focus and the center of our lives precisely because:

    He knows that there is nothing greater He could give us than Himself.

    Psalms 37:4 (KJV)
    Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

    Psalms 73:25 (KJV)
    Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

    Philippians 4:4 (KJV)
    Rejoice in the LORD always: and again I say, Rejoice.

    God’s ultimate means of grabbing our attention is the sending of Jesus Christ.

    John 3:16 (KJV)
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    In our busy and distracted lives, how we need to pay attention to God.

    Do we worship our pets or our cars, maybe it's our job or career we worship, or our television or sports, or our government and political leaders. God wants to get our attention. Are you in prayer talking to God? God wants to hear from us. Pray for our family, friends, church, leaders, strangers. Pray for their charity in service to our LORD. Never miss an opportunity to witness for Christ.

    Pray for them that they will hear the Good News of Jesus Christ our LORD and Savior.

    God takes great delight in hearing our prayers. God recognizes our prayers as a sign of our faith in him, and that we rely on, and trust in, all the Glory, Power, Honor, and Greatness of our Father in Heaven.

    Rejoice in the LORD always: and again I say, Rejoice.

    Experiencing the God of Joy: By centering our lives around Christ, we can experience true joy. "According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." —Philippians 1:21
