Focus On The Lord
Life can get busy, and if we aren't careful, we can lose our focus on God. There are distractions throughout our life that can cause us to drift away from God if we are not careful. David says in these verses that he has set the Lord before him always. We should daily make sure that our focus is on God by reading His Word, praying, and having a personal walk with Him. The only way that we can make it through this life is by our focus being on the Lord. When we go through trials and hard times in our life, if our focus is on God, then the strength to get through the trial is His strength. Verse nine of this chapter states that He also gives us peace, joy, and happiness when we follow Him. Don't be like Peter when he was walking on water and looked around at the storm instead of keeping his eyes on Christ. Keep your focus on God no matter what life brings because only His strength can carry you through trials and storms.
I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
Psalm 16:8-9 (KJV)
