GOD WANTS OUR ATTENTION
One of the reasons God had affection for David is because David gave God his attention all the time. That means David was persistent in prayer.
“My eyes are ever toward the Lord, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net.” (Psalm 25:15)
Like David, we face traps every day, and God is the only One who knows where they are in advance, and prayer is the best way to steer clear of them.
God wants our attention. How do we give our attention to Him? By praying: When we pray about something, we give God our attention.
Have you ever given your attention to another person to find out that they never thought about you in return? It is hard for us to imagine that someone who occupied so much of our thoughts could hold no space for us in their mind.
It has happened to most of us at one time or another, and it can be a painful experience that no one likes to repeat.
Imagine how God must feel when He can not get our attention. God thinks about us constantly. It must hurt God when we do not give Him time in our thoughts throughout the day.
God can see what you can not see. He can see the traps we will have this week, this month, and this year. If we give God our attention and focus, God will go ahead of us and show us how to avoid the traps.
“Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore!” (Psalm 105:4)
Prayer is not something to be checked off a list that we do every day. It is an ongoing conversation with God throughout our day.
Be persistent in our prayer lives and keep asking God for His direction and help throughout our day. It is hard to get lost when we are constantly checking our navigation.
Do not stop talking to God. He loves our attention, and God is always ready and waiting to answer our prayers.
How can you spend more time today talking to God?
Heavenly Father, my eyes are on You. You will be the One where I set my heart and attention. You see the beginning from the end, and You know what is best for me. You lead me by Your Holy Spirit within, and when I listen and obey, You will give me great peace that only You can provide. I will spend more time in communication with You, my Father, and guide. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
