Fixing Our Eyes On Jesus

 

It’s a new day dawning and I get that it’s uncertain. Perhaps our most important message of the hours that come and go would be that given by the writer of Hebrews, in Hebrews 12: 2, “To fix our eyes on Jesus” in these days of uncertainty. The book of Hebrews was written, possibly as a sermon, as an energetic pastoral response to meet the needs of the struggling people of Rome yet, today ‘we’ are those people, struggling, meeting challenges head-on, that we don’t know how to deal with.

The world has a mess of stuff on its doorstep! Who knew? Yet just out of the blue, it sideswiped us! Took us off guard and caught us unprepared. Now it’s a full-blown season of questions without many answers, but yet, you gotta know, even the hard times hold beautiful moments for your beautiful soul. This is not a time to press panic buttons and hide away out of fear but It ‘is’ a time of quiet reflection on life as we see it with a “hands-on, how simple life can be” reference. These days of closures and lockdowns and self-isolation provide a much-needed opportunity for a time-out to bask in the presence of the Omnipotent, Omnipresent sovereign God who is in control and who encompasses you on every side and has you in the palm of His nail imprinted hand! He wouldn’t think of letting you go, not even for a second! He’s got your heart all wrapped up sweet and tight and safe in His, nestled in with His vast and unconditional love and held snug with a grace so amazing it’s beyond comprehension! So even on the days when you feel alone ~ you’re not at all. He’s there for you and your beautiful soul in your moments of need ~ held fast with His mercy! So today, beautiful one, it’s simple. Don’t focus on the latest news, but rather fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, and just respond with a thankful heart for His divine watch-care over your family. Let Him work His plan in you and through you. Be alert to His words of guidance and walk in sweet and simple trust. A childlike faith in an all-powerful God is what you need for today ‘cuz a simple faith walk with Him is a victory walk and a win/win situation. Go for it! He’s got you in these uncertain times.

Hebrews 12:2
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author, and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Time Out

Little Thoughts For Big Days

So when the voice of confusion does its rant against your mind and steals your peace, and leaves you feeling on the brink of nothing but chaos and failure, you need to call a “time out” while you wait on the Lord for His divine direction. His voice won’t compete with the noise of your chaotic surroundings or the noise levels of your panic, fear or worry. He wants your trust! Your complete and honest trust for your problem. Yeah, He works in that calmness of total surrender when noisy confusion dissipates and melts into tranquil moments with Him and His sovereignty. He’s all-knowing and all-powerful. All authority is His and lies in His capable hands. He saves, He keeps, He sustains. He heals, He cleanses and He forgives. Who more could mentor you through the tough decisions and choices that lie ahead? He’s promised to guide and lead the way for His children. Psalm 32:8-9 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding, Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check, Otherwise they will not come near to you.” So ~ beautiful soul, don’t hide behind confusion and stubborn will. Do not let one more thing weight you down! Not one thing! Go to your maker! Get with Him for counsel and help in your time of need. You’ll find unconditional love there! You’ll find Him a God of mercy, grace and compassion. He waits to hear from you. He waits to quiet the noise of your confusion, and heal your wounds and mend your brokenness. He waits to open new doors of opportunity and the grace to rise to the challenge. Trust Him!

Lay It All Out

So if you’re running on empty ~ it’s time out ~ Time out for some R & R with the One who has you in the palm of His nail- scarred hand. The sovereign God who has your back and knows how you feel and just because He cares so much He’s there for you in your burn outs and wilderness walks. He stands beside you in your weakest moments of desperation and in your stormy chaos He throws the life-preserver into your ship wrecks. He walks on the water so He has you covered on all fronts. Talk to Him about it! Lay it out on the table before Him and seek His expert advise. One thing we can know for sure ~ He won’t lead us astray! Never for a second!

Psalm 32:8
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.”

Proverbs 3:5-6
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
