“If I keep my eyes on GOD, I won’t trip over my own feet.” Psalm 25:15 MSG
While I prefer the Amplified Bible for study, I enjoy the MSG Bible for it’s down to earth verbiage. Today’s verse is a great example.
If you don’t want to get tripped up by the cares of the world keep your eyes on Jesus. Make Him the focus of your life. It sounds simple enough, but the truth is, it’s easy to get distracted. Life pulls at us from every direction.
Most parents can affirm, when your child is a baby their world revolves around you. They want to be where you are and most of the time they relish being held and coddled by you. Go to God the Father with that same child like adoration.
God doesn’t expect perfection from us. What He is is looking for is love, devotion and obedience. Even when we do trip, He is there to pick us up, we simply have to reach out and grab hold of His steady hands.
