Do you ever notice how easy it is to take your eyes off of Jesus? Life comes at you and all the things popping up in your peripheral capture your attention and fix your eyes on your circumstance rather than your Savior.
Now your whole attitude changes! You become worried and fearful; angry and resentful, and you grumble and complain a lot. Gloom and despair emanate from you rather than the light of Jesus. You’re supposed to be drawing people to God, but you can’t be an ambassador for Christ in this state! (2 Corinthians 5:20)
Get your gaze back on Jesus! Open your Bible and remind yourself of His promises. Get on your knees and ask Him to help you refocus.
There is an old hymn that sums this up…
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face.
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
in the light of His glory and grace.
His Word shall not fail you, He promised;
Believe Him and all will be well;
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!
[looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith… – Hebrews 12:2 AMP
