Life indeed seems pretty quiet and steady oftentimes. Yet most other times, it can seem turbulent and problematic with no apparent light at the end of the tunnel. But things are not always what they seem, or are they?
You see, what we focus on every day, seems to be magnified! The more you think about the problem, the bigger and bigger it may seem to get. Although if looked at objectively, it’s still the same size. But your constant attention to it made it look bigger and more furious didn’t it?
So what’s our hope? Ahhhh! What a hope we have! You see, we have the ability to turn our attention to Jesus instead and know that not only does He seem bigger, but He indeed IS bigger than any problem, illness or circumstance!
Notice I’m not suggesting the denial of said problem, rather the turning of my focus to Jesus-the WORD. Once I do that, life looks different! I can then focus my attention to His Word, and if there is illness threatening my life, instead of thinking on that day and night, I can think on His Word that says that by His stripes, I was healed!!! (1 Peter 2:24).
I can say to the mountain in my life “Move!” And it WILL OBEY!! (Mark 11:23-25)
Let’s then, knowing that if we focus on Him and not on life’s curve balls, focus on the Word. The truth is that THAT is BIGGER than LIFE!
Say this with me today: “I choose to pay my attention and focus on You Lord Jesus, and not on the circumstances of life!”
