Focused on God.

“So Jesus explained Himself at length. “I’m telling you this straight. The Son can’t independently do a thing, only what He sees the Father doing. What the Father does, the Son does”” (John 5:19; MSG). Jesus’ ministry on earth was focused on the directive of the Father. Even as a boy, years before He began His ministry, His parents found Him in the temple and He told His parents He was, “about My Father’s business” (Luke 2:49). Jesus spent much time in prayer and in the presence of His Father (Matt 14:23; Mark 1:35) to ensure He was acting precisely according to His Father’s ways and plans. Wow! Do we ever wonder how our lives could be if we were as focused on God?
In 1 Chron 16:11, we are exhorted to continuously seek God and His strength and in Jeremiah 29:13 (NKJV), we read, “You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” If we pursue God with our heart, with all we are, we will discover and walk in all He has for us! The desire of King David’s heart was to, “dwell in the house of the Lord, all the days of my life” (Ps 27:4). This speaks of a wonderful, intimate relationship. In the New Testament, we are directed to, “draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8; NKJV). “Set your minds on things above, not on things on the earth” (Col 3:2; NKJV). As we focus on God, His ways, character, and our relationship with Him, He will supply everything we need in life (Matt 6:33). If we truly make Him our priority, He will use us mightily and we will experience His abundant and fulfilling life (John 10:10b).
