“You get no forgiveness from just looking at your sins.
You get no healing from concentrating on your diseases.
You get no redemption from studying the pit you’re in.
You get no crowning with glory from fixing your eyes on your failures.
You get no fulfillment of desires from looking at all you don’t have.
You get no renewal from focusing in your oldness, staleness, dryness.
Forgives all your sin…
…heals all your diseases…
…redeems your life from the pit…
…crowns you with love and compassion…
…satisfies your desire with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalm 103: 3-5)
Look to yourself and ultimately you will be embarrassed.
Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.’ Psalm 34:5”
From: I Want to See You, Lord by Anne Ortlund
So – what are you focusing on today?
