There are temptations all around us. We each have our own weaknesses that can distract us from our goals. As Steve Jobs said, "Focusing is about saying no."
If we want to keep our focus on God, we sometimes need to say, "No!" We need to say no to the temptations of this world. We need to strive for self-control. With God's help, we can accomplish these goals. We can call on God and rely on Him and His salvation. God can show us when it is not only OK, but necessary, to say no!
Stay focused by turning to God and saying no to the temptations of this world!
Thank You for always being by my side. Help me to hear Your direction and to say no when I am tempted by the world. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
