Present In The Hustle

In a world that’s constantly moving and changing, it can be easy to try to keep up with the hustle and, in the process, miss out on God moments. Often we ask ourselves, how can we be present, and what is our purpose.

Many situations we face in our lives can make us feel overwhelmed, and we often feel like we don’t know what to do and how to respond. We need to understand that God is sovereign. He saw these moments before we did, He knew where we’d be at such times, and He has a purpose for us in our lives.

Begin with this: Do everything you do unto the Lord – to Him, for Him, with Him, and you’ll be able to focus on each moment of the present. Be determined to give yourself and your mind completely to what you’re doing. If you’re reading God’s Word, avoid distractions. Designate time to read God’s Word daily. When you seek God’s Word, you’ll find purpose, and you begin to hear His voice.

‘I would have rather one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere (Psalm 84:10a). This verse reminds us of something endless in a world filled with limits.

Being exactly where you are is right where you’re supposed to be. God has a plan for each of us, and being in His ‘courts’ is the perfect place, in perfect timing. To be present and discover your purpose, keep your gaze fixed on God and stay right where you are – in His court.
