It’s easy to look at the past, or today’s problems, or the worries about the future. However, anytime I focus on something other than our Savior, I’ve focused on something (or someone) that can’t save. When I spend my time trying to analyze or fix a situation (or person), I’ve wasted my time. I must keep my eyes fixed on Jesus.
Concerns and worries are deflating, but a life focused on Jesus is inflated with His power, truth, life, and His love.
Life is full of obstacles and hindrances. There’s gonna be trouble in the world, but we have a Savior who has overcome the world!
Strength and power for the past, present, and future, is found in The One who is strength and power.
Future hope is found in The One who is our future and our hope.
God knows the plans for our life, plans for welfare and not calamity to give us a future and a hope. So, let’s lay aside every hindrance and any sin that entangles us. And let’s run our race with endurance, fixing our eyes on Jesus who is sitting at the right hand of God.
I’m fixing my eyes on Jesus, throwing off the hindrances, and boldly running the race into my future with The One who holds my future!
Join me? Let’s step (or run) into our bold future!
(See John 16:33, Jeremiah 29:11, Hebrews 12:1-2)
