Ps 112:1 Praise the LORD! How blessed is the man who fears the LORD, Who greatly delights in His commandments.

I want God in my life. I recognize the brevity and tenuousness of life. I have experienced first hand the results of making a poor decision. I want God in my life.

Only I can cultivate the awareness of God in me. It takes intentional thinking. It requires that I get serious about what I am saying to the Lord and that I will take time to listen to Him.

Everything I do must have room for the Lord. What I cannot share with the Lord Jesus potentially has the earmarks of self and sin. When I am obsessed with Jesus nothing else can grab my attention. An obsession with the Lord will be an effective, aggressive activity that combats loneliness, worry, tribulation and addictions.

When I am focused on Jesus I am equipped with a strong defense against the assaults of evil.
