Often, when we experience happiness – love of family and friends – enjoy good health – good paying jobs – nice houses – cars – vacations – our focus will be on these things. All, of which, have the potential to take our attention away from God. Did you forget Who is in control? Did you forget where your Help comes from? Did you forget what He has done for you?
“Trouble will redirect your attention to God!” – Pastor V.S. Brice
When trials, tribulations, trouble comes we immediately call on God. We remember Who is in control – where our Help comes from – what He has done. We redirect our attention to God.
Psalm 5:2 (NIV) “Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.”
We know we serve a God who will “make a way out of no way” – “will never leave nor forsake you” – will instruct you to “look to the hills” – will be your “Bridge over troubled waters”.
Psalm 121:2 (NIV) “My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”
Have an intimate relationship with God. A relationship requires action from all parties involved. Speak to Him daily and often – listen and obey. Your voice to God should be as familiar to Him as your loved one’s voice is familiar to you.
Psalm 34:1 (KJV) “I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
Redirect your attention to God and let Him direct your path through good and troubled times. Don’t keep God waiting – your action is required now! Get Connected – and – Stay Connected!
