Weekend Words of Wisdom #2

A Focused Leader

The busier I get, the more focus is necessary for me to complete my priorities. With that focus comes the exclusion of other things – which may be fine unless one of the “other things’ is God.

David is a real model for me in this. No doubt he often was distracted by many priorities. Yet David said in Psalm 16:8,

I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

David learned to think about God all the time. And the result was peace in spite of circumstances.

The questions I ask you to honestly answer today:

  1. Is the Lord right there beside you?
  2. Are you conscious of His presence in your life today?
