Fix your eyes on Jesus alone

Fix Your Eyes on Jesus
Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

Just like a student who does not concentrate when the teacher is teaching would performs badly, so is the case with Christians who does not concentrate on our Saviour. When we fix our eyes on Jesus always, He leads us safely as a shepherd leads the sheep to green pastures. For sure God's power is manifested in our weakest point, only when we trust in Him to strengthen us. So we can surely say, this far has the Lord taken us, He is Ebenezer.

The devil would like us to waste our time focussing on our flaws and weaknesses. His only intention is to make sure he creates a distraction, because he knows that when we are focussed on Jesus, we are well led because Jesus is the Way. Let us always focus on Jesus and we will not be derailed. Jesus is the only way, and He is the only one who knows the way to the Father. When we let Him lead us by the hand, we are fully assured of where we are going.

We are in a race and we need to not only run race but also to make sure that we finish the race and that we are not disqualified. This will only happen if Jesus is leading the way.Then shall we receive the prize for having finished the race. Therefore, let us stop complaining and be engrossed to Jesus instead.

Gazing on Jesus heals our bodies, our souls, our thoughts, our bones and our marrows and we are made strong in Him ready to face any measure of rejection, ridicule, slander, obstacle, shame, adversary, contempt and weakness. This is because the mighty hand of God overshadows all these things and they become very tiny and meaningless to our eyes because Jesus has become so big, so mighty, so magnified, so real and so near to us.
