Hebrews 12:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross,scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
FIX YOUR EYES UPON JESUS ~
Have you ever wondered why we must fix our eyes? We fix our eyes because things of this world can disappoint us or place fear within us. God has not given the spirit of fear.
2 Timothy 1:7 New King James Version (NKJV)
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
I like to give scriptures of hope daily. Just knowing that God does not give fear, makes me know the enemy of our soul is real. The devil wants to distract you from the peace of God. God gives love and a sound mind. Things we think about matter and one thought does lead to another. Let your mind think on positive things and know God is able. I know a few people who face some hard doctor's reports. It doesn't seem fair and I don't know why God doesn't just give a miracle. But I hold on for them and I believe God can change things suddenly.
Romans 10:17 New King James Version (NKJV)
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
The word of God (Bible) is filled with stories of lives changed to positive. Things that seemed impossible and yet God did the impossible. Hold on today for your miracle or your family or friend's miracle too. Lets pray:
God, we don't always know your why of things, but we trust you. Trust that your miracle working power will happen this day for the readers of my blog, their family and friends. Nothing is too big for you and as we look into the sky today, let us see your power through the clouds, sunshine and blue skies. I have personally seem miracles and believe that you will keep doing them. Help those to who need to feel you today and see positive action in their lives. Help us to see through your eyes and know greater is in this day. Let peace rest in the minds of those who need rest. AMEN
THROUGH MY EYES ~
I have seen miracles and God's amazing love through hard situations. I have seen peace in my own life and it's important to trust God. Through it all, God changes things on purpose. Maybe your own choice brought you to a hard place of life, but guess what? You can change that hard place into a better place. A new day brings hope and your choice matters this day. God forgives and moves us on in life. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and continue to do the right thing. The right thing brings you to a cross road of letting go of somethings of life. Purpose time with God through this word (Bible) and music. I have found in days that mentally were hard, listening to music brings my thought pattern back to God. Remember, it's not God that tries to take you away from him, but the enemy of your soul.
Purpose this a good day!
