It is so easy to become spiritually distracted. Do you find yourself focusing on everything else but Christ and the work He is doing around you? Ask God to remove the things getting in the way of your relationship with Him.
It is freeing to know that God controls your life and knows what it can become. Rather than worrying about what you will face, your challenge is to continually release every area of your life to God's control.
Can we become so distracted by the busyness of our lives that we become ineffective to those whom God sends to us? God ought to be able to send a hurting person to any child of His and expect that they will be helped.
Sin causes us to be self-centered, shifting our hearts from God to self. But the essence of salvation is a turn God-centeredness. Resist the temptation to pursue your own goals, asking God to bless them. Rather, deny yourself and join the activity of God as He reveals it to you.
You must forgive to be forgiven. Few things are more precious to receive than forgiveness. After carrying the burden of our sin, it is wonderfully freeing to know that the one we have wronged has completely forgiven us.
Are you learning to love someone? God will help you. He will enable you to love your parents, your spouse, your children, your friends, or your enemy in a deeper way than you could ever love them on your own.
