This morning I am working in the 12th chapter of Luke where it reads in verses 16 and 17 “The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully; and he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?'” There is no evidence of his cheating or mistreating others, but his error seemed to be of his self-absorption and thinking only of wealth and ease materially.
This brought to mind when I am struggling with a challenge, I begin to have “tunnel vision” and am only concerned with a solution to this problem. Right then, right there is when I should turn wholeheartedly to God and listen for that still, soft voice. Where that obsession to relief is sometimes keeps me from the spiritual growth that is much needed! It is never about me but always about learning more about God and my relationship with Him. I am so grateful for that.
