Fix those Eyes~

September 22, 2016 — Leave a comment

In Deuteronomy 32:15b there is a word that says, “He abandoned the God who made him and rejected the Rock his Savior.”

Are we guilty of that same thing?  Do we abandon the God who made us?  Do we reject the Rock our Savior?

If you are a Christian, you probably don’t do these things on purpose, but sometimes we “forget” Who made us.  Our enemy wants to keep us distracted.  He wants to keep us “off task.”  He wants us to lose that intimacy with our Maker.

Stay alert, Love Heart.  Hebrews 12:2 says, “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scoring its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Don’t lose your focus…Gwen~

Satisfied?

“But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.” (John 6:27, NIV)      

Wow, that’s a tall order.  I don’t know about you but when someone mistreats me; my first inclination is to think of ways to get them back.  To ignore, to snub or my mind begins to race with what I should have said.

We must remember however that these things are used to build our character.  Will we trust God enough to know that He has a plan for our life?  Are we satisfied with Him being in control?

“I know the plan I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV)

Where do you go when times get rough?  When you have nowhere else to go…
