Focus on His Spirit and enjoy. When you put things in perspective and let that One that is there for you always guide you, your life will fall into place. Let’s go to:
Romans 8:1 “[There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
Romans 8:6 “For to be carnally minded [is] death; but to be spiritually minded [is] life and peace.”
Here life from (Strong’s 1515) means to live, a lifetime and quick; peace from (Strong’s 1515) prosperity, peace, quietness, rest and to set as one again. Carnally from (Strong’s 456) the body and flesh; spiritually from (Strong’s 4151 and 4154) the spirit, soul, mind and breath. So remember Him and not things of this world -- even your self. Things of this world will soon die, but things of dear God are always and forever. Listen to that One that put that breath of life in you and let Him set you as one again.
Put Him at your center and see how much more balanced and easier your life will be. The best time to do that is right now. Do not wait until something negative comes along your path and you need dear God’s help. Put Him in front of you so you can see things peacefully, easily and joyfully right now. What better One to console with and be there every step of the way with you. That is what He really wants – that is that special and close relationship with you always.
So keep Him in mind, especially when you have major issues in your life that you are dealing with. When those challenges come along, go to Him first for help and reassurance. Remember He is the One that knows you and your circumstances better than anyone. He is shaping you so can be a better person and help Him out in His Plan of Love.
Stay in the Word and keep focused on that inner self that always lifts you up to dear God. Let His Love shine through your heart when you live each day and smile. Let all the gifts that He has blessed you with shine upon the world for His Glory. You will be so glad that you helped Him out by being there for dear friends, family and people that He puts in your path.
Finally, focus on His Spirit and enjoy this life. That is why He made you – for His Pleasure. Be pleasing to Him by your faith, staying in the Word and talking with Him. Keep Him right next to you and see how much better your life is. He loves you, so let Him know you want to be there for Him, too. Tell Him you care, too.
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Strength,
at Your service
