How often we think in terms of specific situations. The needs of the moment. Problems and challenges that stand before us. These are practical concerns. But this focus actually can point us in the wrong direction. We can start thinking about what God can do for us. Just the help He can provide, right now!

In many ways we need a different focus. Instead of thinking about what God can do, we need to think about God Himself. The fact is that He is the answer to every question.

In His presence, we have maximum security. There, we are safe and blessed. There, we grow in confidence of His sovereignty. There, He teaches us and provides His wisdom. There, every enemy is defeated and every need met. There, we have His peace and fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11).

David realized this when he described the Lord as his rock, fortress, shield, “the power that saves me,” his “place of safety” (Psalm 18:2). God’s message to the children of Israel was that He was “I AM.” He was everything! All they needed.

The Bible is filled with promises for those who focus on God. “All who seek the Lord will praise him, their hearts will rejoice with everlasting joy” (Psalm 22:26). David realized that his highest priority should be seeking the Lord. The one thing he desired? The one thing he sought? “That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple” (Psalm 27:4, NKJV).

Today, concentrate on God. Lay aside immediate concerns and worries, and spend time with Him. Remember. He is the great I Am.
