Turn Us From Vanity (by Ben Johnson)

Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way. (Psalms 119:37 KJV)

If there is one thing that this world does so easily to us is that it sucks us into it. Everything we see and experience draws us into it often without us even realizing it. It is so easy to be consumed with everything this life has to offer.

We are not typically drawn into bad things. It is a rare story for a Christian to say that they were just going through life, minding their own business and somehow before they knew it; they were the boss of some major crime syndicate. But we do go through life and before we know it, we are neck-deep in everything this world has to offer. It is what we think about, pray about and work towards.

It is not that we are so consumed in bad things just vain things. Things that empty and pointless in the grand scheme of it all. Let us pray that God would revive us in His ways. That we would be consumed with the things that do matter. Help us to think about, pray about and work toward at he ways of God.
