“One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; 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 enquire in his temple” (Psalm 27:4).Text — Psalm 27:4-8
In her book, Becoming a woman of excellence, Cynthia Heald states, “My goal is to honour the Lord in my thoughts, speech, actions, and activities, to exemplify Christ’s character as I respond to people and circumstances, and to continually deepen my fellowship and knowledge of God and His Word.” Wise people set goals in all areas of their lives, be it academic, career, or spiritual. The goals help in measuring our progress in any area of endeavour. Naturally, youthful age is a period of exuberance, and unbounding exploration fueled by curiosity. Knowing this, Satan continues to exploit this innate drive to the destruction of innumerable youths, using carnal distraction strategies. But the wise youth has an option through Christ to focus on God as his primary goal in life – and the rest of life’s endeavours will fall in place.
Thus, Georgia Cates asserts his absolute faith in God: “Everything I’ve been, I am, or will ever be, I surrender it all to you.” Once we get it right from our youth, we excel in everything else – academics, career, health, etc.
Focus on God
Pursue Christ as a life’s goal.
