Daily devotional: Where our focus should be

Scripture
Man is a mere phantom as he goes to and fro: He bustles about, but only in vain; he heaps up wealth, not knowing who will get it. But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.
Psalm 39:6-7 NIV

Observation
It is easy to focus on the here and now, accomplishing things and building financial security. But it leads to an empty life.

Application
Instead, look on the Lord and put my hope in Him. Live life with eternal perspective.

Prayer
Lord, I put my hope in You. I look to You for my sustenance, direction, meaning, and fulfillment. Please use me and continue to direct me and provide for me, opening the doors You want me to pass through and closing the doors You don't have for me. Please give me wisdom and discernment. I love you!
