Psalm 119:37 – Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, And revive me in Your way.
God wants your focus to be upon worthwhile things and lasting things of eternity, like relationships and love and good memories with friends and family. Not the temporal things of this world, like money, power, position or possessions. The way of the world leads to hoplessness and a greater sense of want. God’s path leads to a life of security, proper perspective and a desire to give to others instead of getting from others.
Where do find your eyes spend most of their time these days? Looking at things you don’t have? Looking at things you shouldn’t be looking at? Your challenge this week is to draw your attention away from these useless things and aim to see what God wants you to see, which is of greater value. The things God will show you will be of much more importance than anthing else this world has to offer.
