Hebrew 12:2 (GNT) – Keep your eyes on Jesus, our leader and instructor.
We are living in a world that is changing each and every day. In the past few years things have totally changed in how we think and do things and what is expected of us as children of God. Because of the many changes we have in our lives we must make sure we are prepared for what is before us. It is very difficult for us to really comprehend what many go through on a daily basis. Because of the many changes and uncertainties in our lives it is hard to know who we can really depend on and look to for help, guidance, encouragement and comfort. For 2014 look up! Keep your eyes on Jesus; He is our Leader and Instructor.
Whether you and I realize it or not, our life is just like a race. The problem that 99.9 percent of us have in our lives is that we are not prepared for the race that we are in. As we go on in the race of life we find ourselves having to climb some gigantic hurdles that seem to be impossible to go over. The writer of Hebrews gives us some great advice on how we can prepare ourselves for life’s race.
Runners take off everything before entering the race. What is hindering you and me from running the race that is before us? What is hindering Church on the Rock from running the race that God has for us to run?
God is calling us to take off/”cut off”, lay aside everything so we can have nothing that will hold us back. Not only do we lay aside every hindrance and every sin but we must run life’s race fixing our eyes on Jesus. Look Up!
For 2014 Have Vision- See your promises before they get here- If you know what God said He’ll do then you will be still in times of torment (Psalm 46). Most of us melt under pressure because we don’t know the promises of God. You can have power for today if you have a Vision for tomorrow.
For 2014 Be Confident- Be assured of God’s Promises – Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. It’s one thing to know what He has said but do you believe it. 2014 is the year to care more about making a legacy than making a living therefore; do the things that will impact tomorrow, believe His promises Look Up!
God will only do what you release Him to do – Matthew 18:18 “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
Finally For 2014 Look Up! Look to Him by resolving to allowing your dreams overtake your memories. Don’t let the world rob you of your heart’s desire – 2 Timothy 1:12 For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.
This is the Prophetic Word of The Lord to this 2014 Look Up! Fix Your Eyes on Jesus your leader and Instructor – People of God stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.
