Focus on the Savior

focus on Jesus

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

I am thankful that we can focus on the Savior. It is easy to spend time concentrating on the many problems that surround us.  We can spend wasted time thinking about what is wrong and what is not right but there is another way.  As believers we are called to focus on Jesus, our Savior.  We can elevate our hearts and minds and focus on Him.  When we meditate on Him, His love for us, His goodness and His power, peace comes.  It is a peace that defies understanding.  We can make a conscious decision to focus on Him every day and watch the level of peace grow in our lives.  We can choose to focus on Him today and the days to come.

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.  Philippians 4:6-7
