“Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father” (Colossians 3:17).
What is the focus of your life? Is it to get ahead? Is it to have a good time? The Lord has called you to Himself so that the focus of your life might be your relationship with Him. Is this what you are living for? Come then and be redirected in the way of life which is the way of the Lord. Do not live for the things of this age which are passing away, but for the eternity into which You have been called.
Lord, You know how much I wander in this world. I am distracted by so many things. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of life that You have established so that I may now and forever be guided by You, the author of all life. Teach me how to really live life, doing all that I do in, through, by, and for You, my Savior. Let me learn how to rejoice and relish in these things and not worry about what You are accomplishing through me.
Come Holy Spirit and minister to my inner life. You know where those places are that distract me from the one thing necessary. Help me to turn my eyes outward so that I would do all I do because You have directed me in this way. Guide me, Lord, and I will follow. Teach me and I will learn. Speak to me and I will listen. I thank You for giving me grace, salvation, and a new life. Amen.
