A few weeks ago Vernon wrote a blog about the god called “Problem Solving” based upon a conversation he and I had earlier that day. He ended the blog with a question as to how we should go about repenting of our idolatry. Here is my personal response.
For me the manifestation of this idolatry is a hyperfocus on the future and trying to “figure it out”. Consequently I miss a lot of what God is doing today. So I took a 3×5 note card and wrote on the top of it “TODAY” and put the following questions and verses:
Father what are you doing TODAY to glorify yourself in and through me?
How can I delight myself in you TODAY?
What blessings of yours am I missing TODAY b/c I am fixated on tomorrow?
What do success and obedience look like TODAY?
Who and/or what would you have me pray for and meditate on TODAY so that my focus in not inward?
The questions were influenced by a sermon I heard a few Sunday’s back entitled “God @ work” which you can find here.
Have a great week.
