Daniel 1:20 (NLT) Whenever the king consulted them in any matter requiring wisdom and balanced judgment, he found them ten times more capable than any of the magicians and enchanters in his entire kingdom.
| Sometimes, amid the demands of daily life, we lose perspective. Life seems out of balance, and the pressures of everyday living seem overwhelming. What’s needed is a fresh perspective, a restored sense of balance, and without question a fresh influence of God.
If a temporary loss of perspective has left you worried, exhausted, or both, it’s time to readjust your thought patterns. Negative thoughts are habit-forming; thankfully, so are positive ones. With practice, you can form the habit of focusing on God’s priorities and your possibilities. When you do, you’ll soon discover that you will spend less time worrying about your challenges and more time praising God for His gifts.
When you call upon the Lord and prayerfully seek His will, God will give you wisdom and perspective. When you make God’s priorities your priorities, the Lord will direct your steps and calm your fears.
Point to ponder- Pray for a sense of balance and perspective today and every day hereafter, and remember: your thoughts are intensely powerful things, so handle them with care. And have a marvelous Monday!
