While driving to church one day, I was having a difficult time seeing the road because it was snowing so hard. I was afraid I was going to go off into the ditch, so I started praying in the Spirit.
While I was praying, He said, “Narrow your field of vision.” So, I dropped the sun visor down, and I was then able to see the tracks of the other cars well enough to get me safely to church.
This experience made me think of our relationship with the Lord.
When we take our focus off of Him, we have a difficult time seeing where our life is going. We get caught up in the cares of the world, consumed with everyday life, and before we realize it, our prayer life and time spent with Him have fallen by the wayside.
It’s time to narrow our field of vision and refocus on what truly matters.
“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you,” (Matthew 6:33, NKJ).
Time spent in the Word, talking with our Heavenly Father, sets our course for the day. It strengthens us and gives us a new perspective and outlook on our situations. It frees us up knowing He’s got us!
“Casting all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you,” (1 Peter 5:7, NKJ).
