The Importance of Setting Jesus Before You

by Pastor Ken

I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my tongue rejoices. My body shall also dwell in safety.

Psalm 16:8-9

Do you remember Daniel and his friends in Babylon? Daniel was determined not to defile himself by eating the food and wine given to them by the king. And this determination made rest of his life one of great influence. Even kings changed their ways because of Daniel.

You can be as determined and committed as Daniel was. You can make your body healthier and stronger for the LORD and for living out His purposes for your life. You decide to do so and ask God to guide you.

Let God lead you toward accomplishing the goals and fulfilling the mission He has for you. With Jesus at your right hand, you shall not be moved.

Remember what He said, “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11 NLT). God’s real joy for you is to see you reach your full potential—the one He created within you. So do it!

Pray: Father, You have already given me so much, yet You have also promised me a future and hope. Thank you! Let me show my gratitude by living up to my potential—the one You planted in me. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
