One-Minute Devotionals reveal in a single sentence, underlying truth about specific Scripture.

It is better to look at what is in front of you than to go looking for what you want. Even this is pointless. It’s like trying to catch the wind.
Ecc 6:9

I can't see what God sees, because I want Him to see what I see. 3204


Live it
Why is it we spend so much time thinking about where we ought to be, we allow ministry opportunities to walk right past us. I thank God for those who elect to travel around the world this time of year to do ministry. But at the same time, I'm curious why for the other fifty weeks of the year, we fail to see the same opportunity living in our neighborhood.

They should teach a class on God's will. O wait, they do! But how many good courses have we completed just to leave with the same questions we brought in with us? A funny thing happened on my way searching for God's will. I discovered I'm where He wants me to be. How about you? Are you looking for something "better," or have you already found it by living to serve Him each and every day?

Pray it
Thank you for ministry opportunities, big and small. Please help me redeem the ones that tend to fade when I'm busy looking in the wrong place.
