And he said to them,
Why is it that you have sought me?
Did you not know that I ought to be occupied in my Father's business?
Still thinking about minding my own business.
(see earlier entries.)
Wouldn’t it be lovely if I could remember that minding my own business is really being occupied with God’s business!
His desires, his wishes, not mine and not looking at others.
I desire that single eye today to be absorbed in God’s interests.
“Trust in God gives clearness of vision. When we are thinking partly of doing God's work in the world, and partly of lining our own nest, we are in the condition of the man whose eyes do not look in the same direction. There is a squint in our inner vision. We are endeavoring to serve two masters, and our judgment is therefore distorted. Who has not often experienced this? You have tried to ascertain God's will, or to form a right judgment about your life, but constantly your perception of duty has been obscured by the thought that, if you decided in a certain direction, you would interfere with your interests in another. Your eye has not been single, and you have walked in darkness. When, however, you feel so absorbed in God's interests that you are indifferent to your own, all becomes clear, and you leave Him to care for all results. "Mind my business," said Queen Elizabeth to one of her ambassadors, "and I will look after yours." F B Meyer
That got me so excited today!
We mind His business and He takes care of us.
So very grateful!
I’m going out today to serve the Lord with gladness!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
