REFOCUS ON WHAT’S IMPORTANT

SCRIPTURE:

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

(John 4:23–24)

DEVOTIONAL:

Refocus on What’s Important

Elevate your focus by practicing the next two creative, but simple, ways to connect with God: 

Number Four:

Worshiping God is in the Spirit and in truth, adoring His greatness and character. We know Him because His Word has revealed His nature, and the Bible is full of accounts where He has manifested His goodness to many. Musicians will use their instruments in worship, dancers will dance, artists will create, poets will compose…Use your gift to honor God today. (Psalm 95:6–7, 150, John 4:23–24)

Number Five:

Singing to God from our hearts or along with a praise and worship recording will create an atmosphere of heaven as we lift our voices to God. It can refresh our hearts, refocus our minds on the important, and pull us out of our fleshly thoughts. Singing anointed praise songs to God heals broken hearts, refreshes our souls, excites (or calms) our spirits, encourages us and fills us with God’s presence. (Psalm 149:1–4, Ephesians 5:18–19)

PRAYER:

Heavenly Father, help me to refocus my priorities and my perspective to honor You and put the things that are important to You first in my heart and life. Holy Spirit, guide me in worshiping the Father today in spirit and truth. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

  1. Since I started this road with God,I’ve left everything in the past ,though it comes,but I keep going strong,my name is lucky and I chose to walk with God , because I believe in eternal life that he’s given me ,and that I’ve changed for the better of myself,not so many people understand ,which is okay ,but God understand and everyday I try to keep strong in him, because he’s one with me,and we still becoming stronger together,I know I need God more then the world,but I pray he strengthen me through it ,to keep walking away from everything and to keep walking with faith, love and forgiveness,….

  2. I’ve left everything to walk with God,and sometimes,I feel sad,but I remember that God will carry me through, because it’s worth it.
