Devotional: Stay your Mind on God

Asaph begins Psalm 73 with one time-tested truth: that God is good to those who are pure (in the inner man & will). But like us, he can lose sight of that-
whenever he dwells on the seeming unfairness or injustices of life,
whenever he dwells on the lives of others & not his own,
whenever he thinks that living right & living in sin makes no difference.

Thoughts like these open up pain, self-pity, bitterness, and resentment so we need to stop and remember that God is all we have (and truly need) and what matters most is that we draw close to Him.

Today, I pray to be enabled to stay God-minded in acts, thoughts, and affections that I may stay the path and live an encouraged life.
