Keeping Your Eyes on God

Blessed Days All ♥

What does it mean to “Trust God” and “Keep our eyes on Him”?
How do you face the difficult times in your life?
What do you do, when it seems you have run out of options?
Do you give up? Do you keep trying the things that are not working?
What is the next step? What do you think should have been the first step?

Many questions go unanswered, but not these, I have the answer to all!!

YES, I said TO ALL
Don’t trust me-but-TRUST GOD

In life, we will face many obstacles, we will go through challenges that are deemed to be difficult at times.

Challenges can drain your joy and energy,

but learning how to approach them can be another challenge altogether.

As we grow older, we expect life to run smoother, “not always true”, for some it becomes even more difficult. Your body changes, some retire, and others are just beginning to learn who they are and want to “redo” their entire existence. Some have been on a path that has been troubled since the beginning. Others are just now seeing troubles and have no clue what they will do.

Whichever season you are in, in your life, it can be challenging, troublesome, and worrisome. It can cause you much pain, and it can put a strain on marriages, on the job, with friends, and in life.

Learning how to deal with challenges is the key to a peaceful and successful life. One that we can yet be faithful in and with our walk with Christ and still feel fulfilled. I have learned as I have been on this journey, that “KEEPING MY EYES ON GOD IS THE KEY”.

It is the key to everything, I aim to do, to every situation in my life, and to every challenge or obstacle that arises. It’s truly the key to my peace, my sanity, and my joy. It helps me stay grounded, even when the distractions of life, try and lead me astray, it helps me to remain focused on the goal.. HEAVEN

Keeping your eyes on God means seeking him in every area of your life and allowing him to guide your thoughts, words, and actions. It is a way of showing your love, trust, and obedience to him. Keeping your eyes on God helps you to stand firm in difficult times and draw strength from his promises and presence. It also helps you to learn from the examples of other faithful believers who have endured hardships and trials.

When we look at the poetic approach to leaning on God’s word in the Book of Psalms. Chapter 46, (1), and I quote, tells us that…

GOD is our REFUGE and STRENGTH, a very ‘present’ help in trouble.” As it reminds us to not fear or get scared of the issues we face, verse 2 of Psalms 46 says,

“Therefore we WILL NOT FEAR, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.”

Meaning as troubles may be presented toward us and around us, “WE WILL NOT FEAR”, but continue to hold on to God’s word and our Faith. Verse 7, reminds us that, “THE LORD ALMIGHTY IS WITH US; THE GOD OF JACOB IS OUR FORTRESS.”

We can take refuge in God’s fortress knowing that He will comfort us and protect us. Knowing that whatever we are facing in our life, here on earth, we should always keep our Eyes on God.

This enables you to follow his commandments and aim to live as Jesus did. It is a sign of your commitment and loyalty to him. It also brings you joy, peace, and blessing as you obey his will. Keeping your eyes on God gives you a sense of purpose and meaning in life. It helps you to understand his plan for you and the world. It also helps you to cope with uncertainty, suffering, and death by trusting in HIS sovereignty and goodness.

Proverbs 3:5-6, tells us exactly that, to “Trust in the LORD with all our heart, and do not lean on our “own” understandings, but to acknowledge Him and He shall direct our paths.” As we travel this road toward Heaven! Keeping our eyes focused on Christ shows your reverence and respect for him. It is a way of acknowledging his power, wisdom, and holiness. It also shows your gratitude and praise for his grace, mercy, and love.

A simple but powerful reminder, I leave you…

Stay Safe, Stay Encouraged, Stay Blessed
