WHAT to FOCUS on EACH day


JESUS said:

Matthew 6:34

King James Version

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: 

for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. 

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.


How much control do we have over things happening in the world?

Nothing.

Zilch.

Only GOD has FULL control over EVERYTHING.

The sooner we accept that, the more peaceful we'll be.

The world's too crazy, to figure out.

If you're a control freak, the more you'll freak out.

The more obsessive-compulsive you are, the more you'll go nuts.

If you're a nervous person, you'll be a wreck.

Time to put things in perspective.

The world is out of control, for the enemy is at the helm

God allows it all, for there will be a harvest.

Pretty much the parable JESUS told us, about the good seed, and the tares.

The householder allowed both to grow together, even as an enemy had sown the tares among the good seed.

Matthew 13:30

King James Version

30 Let both grow together until the harvest

and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, 

Gather ye together first the tares, 

and bind them in bundles to burn them: 

but gather the wheat into my barn.


Asked to explain the meaning of that parable, JESUS declares:

Matthew 13:37-43

King James Version

37 He answered and said unto them, 

He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

38 The field is the world; 

the good seed are the children of the kingdom; 

but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; 

the harvest is the end of the world; 

and the reapers are the angels.

40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; 

so shall it be in the end of this world.

41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, 

and they shall gather out of his kingdom 

all things that offend, 

and them which do iniquity;

42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: 

there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun 

in the kingdom of their Father. 

Who hath ears to hear, 

let him hear.


I trust in the WISDOM of the LORD.

Completely.

Thus, I don't really read the newspaper, or listen to the news.

I'd much rather listen to sermons, write my articles, and listen to the HOLY SPIRIT's prompts.

I'm not even on social media.

I've entrusted ALL my blogs and posts to the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD.

He's the ONE who teaches me EVERYTHING about Scripture.

I get ALL the TRUTH I need from the BIBLE.

The true born again trusts in JESUS alone.

We know that ANY moment GOD decides, TRUE believers would meet His Son up in the air, before real trouble starts.

So, what good are world domination plans when the LORD comes for His faithful?

What good is hoarding wealth, and power?

Rather, fear JESUS.

He holds the keys to heaven, and hell.

Matthew 10:28

King James Version

28 And fear not them which kill the body, 

but are not able to kill the soul: 

but rather fear him which is able to destroy 

both soul and body in hell.


I'm just an overgrown kid who loves JESUS with all my heart.

Here's one of my favorite verses -- a very powerful, and stabilizing one.

Gives me the focus I need each day:

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.
