Relevant by Beth Auman


The LORD has been speaking this word to me for a long while now, “Relevant”. In my own life I have yielded my focus unto the LORD. I want to have dove’s eyes for Him. You see – doves have single focus. They cannot focus on more than one thing at a time.

Doves have small heads and they have binocular vision which means that both eyes focus on one object at a time. In the Song of Solomon – he describes his loves eyes as doves eyes. He was making a statement that her eyes were equal and singularly focused.

Song of Solomon 4:1 (NASB)4 “[a][b]How beautiful you are, my darling, [c]How beautiful you are! Your eyes are like doves behind your veil; Your hair is like a flock of goats That have descended from Mount Gilead.

The Lord’s Word to me is in every situation stop and focus on what He identifies to be Relevant. Stop. See. Focus on what He identifies to be Relevant. In every situation – Seek God First.

Matthew 6:33 (VOICE) 33 Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and then all these things will be given to you too.

[Merriam-Webster defines Relevant – relating to a subject in an appropriate way, having significant and demonstrable bearing on the matter at hand]

We must seek God first. He will show us what is Relevant and what is fear (false evidence appearing real). When we see from God’s perspective, allow Him to order our situation, we move in His strategic order and Win! This is the key to identifying what is relevant.

How many times have you been thrust into a life situation and had so many things to think about, so many things thrown at you at one time? The key to overcoming and being victorious in Jesus is to allow Him to show you what is relevant in the situation and focus on that. Allow the Lord to order your situation.

Do the one thing that He shows you to do. That one thing that He brings to your heart. Be obedient in the one relevant thing that He has shown to you because you sought Him first and He will order your steps. One step at a time you will overcome in every situation. Placing relevance on His order and giving Him glory in the process.

Psalm 37:23 (NASB) 23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord, And He delights in his way.

He wants us to live our lives and view the world that He created from His perspective. He sees things that we don’t see. God’s Word tells us plainly that He sees everything from a higher perspective.

Isaiah 55:9 (NASB) 9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.

We must first acknowledge that He is God and yield to His perspective. Seek Him and what He delineates relevant in each and every situation in our lives and we will step into a flow with Him.
Let’s face it, when the storms of life come at us, we need God first. From the time that we wake in the morning we must seek Him first and yield our day to Him. Begin to ask Him to order our day and make this the most important habit of our lives. He is relevant. His view is relevant. He has been giving me a divine key of order and I’m compelled by Him to share this key with you.

1 Corinthians 14:40 (NASB) 40 But all things must be done properly and in an orderly manner.

It’s a choice to make God relevant. Personally, I choose to make God relevant in each and every situation in my life. My heart’s prayer for you is that you will too.
Let’s pray together:

We come to You today Abba and ask your forgiveness for each time that we have not sought You first and considered Your perspective relevant. We have each gone our own way from time to time. Made wrong decisions and ended up in a mess. Please LORD forgive each of us for every time that we have done this.
Today LORD we seek You first. We ask for Your help to walk this out day by day from morning until night and see from Your relevant perspective. We want doves eyes LORD. Eyes to singularly focus on You, Your Word, Your Way, Your Truth. We seek Your relevance in each and every situation in our lives. Order every aspect of our lives LORD.

Ephesians 1:17-23The Voice (VOICE)
17 God of our Lord Jesus the Anointed, Father of Glory: I call out to You on behalf of Your people. Give them minds ready to receive wisdom and revelation so they will truly know You. 18 Open the eyes of their hearts, and let the light of Your truth flood in. Shine Your light on the hope You are calling them to embrace. Reveal to them the glorious riches You are preparing as their inheritance. 19 Let them see the full extent of Your power that is at work in those of us who believe, and may it be done according to Your might and power.

Friends, it is this same might and resurrection power that 20 He used in the Anointed One to raise Him from the dead and to position Him at His right hand in heaven. There is nothing over Him. 21 He’s above all rule, authority, power, and dominion; over every name invoked, over every title bestowed in this age and the next. 22 God has placed all things beneath His feet and anointed Him as the head over all things for His church. 23 This church is His body, the fullness of the One who fills all in all.

In Jesus name Amen and Amen
Be Encouraged and Love you all beyond measure.
