KEEP YOUR EYES ON ME! WAVES OF ADVERSITY ARE WASHING OVER YOU, AND YOU FEEL TEMPTED TO GIVE UP. AS YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES CONSUME MORE AND MORE OF YOUR ATTENTION, YOU ARE LOSING SIGHT OF ME. YET I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, HOLDING YOU BY YOUR RIGHT HAND. I AM FULLY AWARE OF YOUR SITUATION, AND I WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO BE TEMPTED BEYOND WHAT YOU ARE ABLE TO BEAR.
YOUR GRAVEST DANGER IS WORRYING ABOUT TOMORROW. IF YOU TRY TO CARRY TOMORROW'S BURDENS TODAY, YOU WILL STAGGER UNDER THE LOAD AND EVENTUALLY FALL FLAT. YOU MUST DISCIPLINE YOURSELF TO LIVE WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES OF TODAY. IT IS IN THE PRESENT MOMENT THAT I WALK CLOSE TO YOU, HELPING YOU CARRY YOUR BURDENS. KEEP YOUR FOCUS ON MY PRESENCE IN THE PRESENT.
YET I AM ALWAYS WITH YOU; YOU HOLD ME BY MY RIGHT HAND. PSALM 73:23
NO TEMPTATION HAS SEIZED YOU EXCEPT WHAT IS COMMON TO MAN. AND GOD IS FAITHFUL AND HE WILL NOT LET YOU BE TEMPTED BEYOND WHAT YOU CAN BEAR. BUT WHEN YOU ARE TEMPTED, HE WILL ALSO PROVIDE A WAY OUT SO YOU CAN STAND UP UNDER IT. 1 CORINTHIANS 10:13
After reading this devotion, I felt it went so well with God Calling and wanted to share it with you. As long as we keep our focus on God, He will remain with us holding us close to Him and protecting us from great temptations. "Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world." God can overcome all, there is no one greater. Praise God.
