"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author
and perfecter of our faith..."
Have you ever had plans to complete a certain task on a particular day only to find several other things that needed doing before you even started the one you intended to tackle? Familiar story to you? Many of you know that it can feel nearly impossible to focus only on the most important task.
The Lord Jesus said to seek the kingdom of God first (Matthew 6:33). He knows every responsibility and obligation each of us has. This Word of God promises that if knowing and doing God’s will and glorifying Him is what matters most to us, all our other needs will be met. When we use our time, talents and finances as He directs, somehow we still have the time and money to do the things we could have chosen to do first.
The One who holds our times in His hands knows the future. Doesn’t that make Him the perfect One to guide us through each day of this coming year? The crowd of spectators in heaven is
cheering as we shake off everything that is not significant in our quest and determine to focus on Jesus.
THE WORLD IS CONSTANTLY TELLING US TO "FOLLOW OUR DREAMS." BUT THE BIBLE URGES US TO FOLLOW JESUS!
