The five senses give us a forum with which we interact with our world. We can see, hear, taste, smell and feel hence we are able to establish an understanding and correlation with the world. Sadly many times there are things that the world tells us that may be factual but not eternal. Meaning they will not abide for ever. We must therefore develop the ability to ignore these temporal facts as we pursue the eternal truth of God.
Focusing on our big God means we must ignore the things that try to shift our focus away from Him. Your small rental home must be ignored if you are going to press on to the release of the mighty business conglomerate you are called to be. Ignore the negative feedback you may be receiving and keep your heart locked into the great things God is doing in you. As you work your faith and go through the different seasons of life, you must ignore the things that try to discourage you and press on to the awesome greatness God is revealing in you.
SCRIPTURE READING: Hebrews 11:24-28 It was by faith that Moses, when he grew up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to share the oppression of God’s people instead of enjoying the fleeting pleasures of sin. He thought it was better to suffer for the sake of Christ than to own the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking ahead to his great reward. It was by faith that Moses left the land of Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger. He kept right on going because he kept his eyes on the one who is invisible. It was by faith that Moses commanded the people of Israel to keep the Passover and to sprinkle blood on the doorposts so that the angel of death would not kill their firstborn sons.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Father, teach me to ignore the negative and temporal things of this world. May I come to an understanding of eternal things that you are revealing in me. Amen
