Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll


Focus First on God
by Charles R. Swindoll


I will give thanks to the LORD
according to His righteousness and will sing
praise to the name of the LORD Most High
Psalm 7:17


There is a mystery, an aura about the living God that is designed to force us to trust Him, even when we cannot figure Him out (which is most of the time). 

The mystery is purposeful, because His overall plan is profound. 

His plan is not designed to make us comfortable; it's designed to make us more like Christ, to conform us to His will. 

In this life, we have focus choices. We can focus on ourselves, we can focus on our circumstances, we can focus on other people, or we can focus on God. When you think biblically, you focus first on God. 

Regardless of what you want, regardless of the circumstances you're under, regardless of what others say or think, regardless of how you feel, God and God alone is working out His great plan. 

And in the final tally, it will be fabulous!
