Focal Passage: Psalm 119:1-11
In college I got a new desk. The only issue was I had to build it myself. It was a really nice desk with a top shelf for books. When I opened the box, I thought I had opened an adult Lego set. The directions were not as easy to follow. I had to get roommates to come and help me; it was not working. The directions were not easy to follow.
Sometimes our lives are that way; they become complicated and hard. Sometimes we just need a little help with what we are supposed to do. Sometimes we get advice from others; some good, and some not so good.
God’s Word gives trustworthy guidance for all of life. When we look in Psalm 119, we can see how God gives us guidance for our daily walk with Him. We are blessed when we keep His commandments and seek after Him. Every day, we are called to seek after Him with our whole heart.
God’s Word also leads us to live unashamed lives before Him. We are to fix our eyes on God. When I used to run, I would fix my eyes on an object and focus running to that object. Once I got to that object, I would focus on the next. As long as I was focused on that object, I never noticed how far or how long I was running. When I was focused on something, everything else faded away. As you focus on God other things do not matter as much as we once thought they did. God’s Word is something we should focus on in life and obey, and as we do, everything will fade away that does not need to be there.
