What Are YOU Looking At?

Sometimes we can not keep going because our eyes are fixed on things that are more of a hindrance than helpful. We look at things that are not healthy for us, that will not help us to move forward, things that derail us from reaching our goals. Sometimes we do it because it allows us to stay in our comfort zones. Sometimes we don’t know where to look. Especially when vast armies appear to be coming at you simultaneously. Jehoshaphat in II Chronicles 20:12 felt this way when vast armies were coming against them in Judah. He admitted that they had no power against the great multitude that was coming against them, nor did they know what to do. But their eyes were on God! Are you looking horizontally or vertically when obstacles come your way? Are you looking to others for answers or are you doing what the writer of Hebrews said in Hebrews 12:2, “to fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.” When we begin to focus on the right One, Jesus, and the right thing, His Word, we are not so easily distracted. And when the distractions are gone we find that we can easily, Keep Going!
