But you are obsessed with whether the godless will be judged. Don’t worry, judgment and justice will be upheld. Job 36:17 NLT
Obsess: to dominate or preoccupy the thoughts, feelings, or desires of (a person); beset, trouble, or haunt persistently or abnormally. What are you obsessing about?
If there are things that you are obsessing about, let them go into the very capable hands of God.
Ever been bothered by things to the point it’s all you think about? It consumes your thoughts, your speech, your movement. Awake, asleep or at work, it’s always there, nagging at you. It’s the reason there’s so much crime and hatred in the world. They’re obsessed with it.
If you’re going to obsess, obsess about God and His ability to take care of it all. The religious people around you won’t like it a bit, but you’ll be too busy resting in Gods peace. Be assured, all your striving, reaching and stressing isn’t going to make a bit of difference, nor does it impress God.
Get consumed with His presence. In that quiet time of fellowship, he will give direction to either go and do, or stay and wait. Whichever way he directs, do it even if it makes no sense. He sees things and knows things you don’t and your obedience measures your level of trust. Spending time with Jesus is the only worthwhile obsession to have.
Father, I will keep my mind focused on what is good. You are a good God so I will think on You. When trouble tries to hide take my peace, I will remember You are the peace giver. I love You so very much and I’m thankful for every promise You’ve made that I can think on. Keep my mind stayed on You today, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
