A pirouette is a graceful spin that’s executed by ballerinas and contemporary dancers alike. As a child, I loved to do pirouettes in my modern dance class, whirling round and round until I was dizzy in the head and fell to the ground. As I got older, a trick I learned to help me maintain my balance and control was “spotting”—identifying a single point for my eyes to return to each time I made a full circle spin. Having a single focal point was all I needed to master my pirouette with a graceful finish.

We all face many twists and turns in life. When we focus on our problems, however, the things we encounter seem unmanageable, leaving us dizzy and heading toward a disastrous fall. The Bible reminds us that if we keep our minds steadfast, or focused, on God, He’ll keep us in “perfect peace” (Isaiah 26:3). Perfect peace means that no matter how many turns life takes, we can remain calm, assured that God will be with us through our problems and trials. He’s the “Rock eternal” (v. 4)—the ultimate “spot” to fix our eyes on—because His promises never change.

May we keep our eyes on Him as we go through each day, going to Him in prayer and studying His promises in the Scriptures. May we rely on God, our eternal Rock, to help us move gracefully through all of life.

Hi there, and welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread.

Today's reading, titled Spotting God, was written by Kimya Loader. A pirouette is a graceful spin that's executed by ballerinas and contemporary dancers alike. As a child, I loved to do pirouettes in my modern dance class, whirling round and round until I was dizzy in the head and fell to the ground. As I got older, a trick I learned to help me maintain my balance and control was spotting, identifying a single point for my eyes to return to each time I made a full circle spin.

Having a single focal point was all I needed to master my pirouette with a graceful finish. We all face many twists and turns in life. When we focus on our problems, however, the things we encounter seem unmanageable, leaving us dizzy and heading toward a disastrous fall. The Bible reminds us that if we keep our minds steadfast or focused on God, He'll keep us in perfect peace. Perfect peace means that no matter how many turns life takes, we can remain calm, assured that God will be with us through our problems and trials.

He's the rock eternal, the ultimate spot to fix our eyes on because His promises never change. May we keep our eyes on Him as we go through each day, going to Him in prayer and studying His promises in the Scriptures. May we rely on God, our eternal rock, to help us move gracefully through all of life.

Today's Our Daily Bread devotional scripture reading is from Isaiah chapter 26 verses 3 and 4. You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord Himself, is the rock eternal. Let's pray. Dear Heavenly Father, forgive us for focusing on the problems we face each day. We know You've conquered the world and remain bigger than our trials. So help us turn our eyes and our hearts to You in every circumstance. Thank You, Lord. It's in Jesus' name we pray. Amen. Thanks for listening. My name is Toni Collier, and today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread Ministries.
