Keep Returning Your Focus To Me!
KEEP RETURNING YOUR FOCUS TO ME! I AM always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you. You, however, are only human, and you will lose sight of Me at times. I know how hard it is for you to stay focused on Me, especially when you are feeling weak or weary. So give yourself grace whenever you realize your mind and heart have wandered from Me. And waste no time in returning to Me by praising Me in thought, word, or song. Even whispering My Name—reverently, lovingly— can be worship.
Let Me have all your worries and cares. This may sound easy, but it is not; you are accustomed to worry-thoughts roaming freely in your brain. So you must train yourself to bring all your cares into My Presence, trusting Me to help you. Remember that you are never alone in your struggles: I am always aware of you and your circumstances. I can help you because I have all authority in heaven and on earth. As you come into My Presence, let go of your worries and cares—so you can cling to Me in childlike trust.
Let [God] have all your worries and cares, for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.
[1 Peter 5:7]
Jesus came and spoke to [the disciples], saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.”
At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
