Day 183

SINGLE-MINDEDNESS

"‘My food," said Jesus,
"is to do the will of him who sent me
and to finish his work."
John 4:34

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, if someone claims you have a one-track mind, accept it as a compliment — if that means your mind, heart, and soul are centrally focused on Me. My single-minded mission from the beginning has been to do the will of My Father and nothing less. Others tried to distract Me, as they will you, but you must remain strong and protect our love at all costs. Just as I finished My work on the cross, I will finish the good work I started in you. I will not leave you alone.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
You allowed nothing or no one to interrupt Your mission, Lord. Thank You for Your single-mindedness. Even when Your friends and family attempted to sidetrack You from Your main goal, You persevered to the end. I am the benefactor of Your success. Knowing You are there gives my heart strength for the journey and grace for the task.

SIMPLE TRUTH

All God wants is the permanent key to your heart.
