About Let Series
LET. Wielded by the Holy Spirit, this tiny word had a huge impact on Martha’s life, and the adventure can be yours, too, if you just LET God be GOD.
Matthew 6:9 NASB
Pray then in this way: Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
Jesus’ prayer begins with the Person, God…and with His preciousness and wonder. This is Jesus — fixing His eyes on God. Just turning to God, considering Him.
“God is Attention without distraction. Absolutely unmixed attention is prayer.”
Would that it were that easy. Yet it is! My focus wanders. I’m gone from Him and I don’t even know it. In my mind I go to my day and I imagine getting the chicken from the freezer, making this call, fixing that…I have left Jesus. As one wrote about his weakness to be distracted: “the buzz of the fly, the creak of the door.”
Vital issues and tedious distractions seek us, compel us, capture our minds. No problem. Just look back at Jesus. And keep coming back to see Him.
If you stop for the distraction, you are distracted. If you fret over the interruption, you are interrupted. Be simple. Ignore the interruption and in time, your mind will be subdued to concentrate in stillness. And you will come to “FIX your eyes on Jesus.”
Pray for concentration and work to concentrate.
