Centered on God’s Principles

Can you imagine if we could keep our focus so that every physical and mental resource was centered on God? Imagine the power to solve problems; to follow through with intelligent planning and excellent execution of these plans.

Click on this piano piece: In The Garden: Norm Hastings, Piano. While listening, take a look at Nehemiah 9:16-38 and reflect on the lesson God is teaching? Think about what you may pray for today. Is there a plan of action God is giving you today? The lesson for me as I think about today’s reading is that in good times or bad times, we need to continue the steady course of paying attention to God’s principles and applying them in our life.

    nice piano music Mark…..what I get from your words and those in the scripture…is that no matter what we are going through, God is always faithful to us…it’s never that he is the one that leaves us…but rather, we are always the ones who always leave him….then we cry over being lost in the wilderness…..but it’s not for lack of instruction – ever!

      Good observations. Sometimes I think we just loose our focus and forget that God is the one that gives us joy and peace and a future. Instead, we look for happiness in things that bring no real value to us in the long term.

        I agree Mark….we need to surrender to God by realizing that we can do nothing for ourselves…..
