Fix Our Eyes On Jesus

There is a quote in the Women Of Faith blog that I read today and it has really stirred up the reality of its importance in my life and I believe it will in yours too.  Sheila Walsh states "Faith is not wishful thinking or theatrics.  Faith is born in us as we fix our eyes on Jesus and as we recognize the fingerprints of God the Father all over our lives." 

Wow!!! this is great.... Fix our eyes on Jesus....  Visible fingerprints of God in our daily lives?   Is this really possible to see his works so intimately in our lives?  Yes! and I see them everyday.  Everyday our Father God will give you a sign you are on track.  Starting your day and asking God to direct your steps and guard your mind and heart is plugging in to His grace.  You are fixing your eyes on Him.  It is simple.   Our Father does not want to make it harder than it is.  I have a habit of analyzing everything to death at times.  The Lord keeps it simple.   The signs in your daily walk disclose to you and give you direction to keep you on track.  

God uses rainbows in my life.  A few monumental moments in my life where I needed to know He was with me He has brought me a rainbow.  I had made a major move a few years ago and it was the hardest thing I have ever had to do.  I packed up and drove 2500 miles.  I felt as though I was numb.  I believe sometimes when we have to do things we do not want to do God just takes over and gets you there.  When I arrived to my new home I walked down to the lake.  It had only been about an hour after I had arrived.  When I walked down to the lake there was the most beautiful rainbow.  This was not just a partial rainbow it was the whole thing directly over the lake with two gorgeous Loons swimming just beneath it.  It brought such an overwhelming sensation of peace.  This gave me the grace to know He loves me that much to show me I am in line with His will.  He loves everyone of us that much!!!

Sheila also states "I became convinced that it means that every time my will crossed God’s will, I dragged my will back in line with his. It means doing the things that I know are good and true, whether I feel like it or not."  Sometimes what we have in our minds and what we envision to be right and true is not in line with Gods will.  In our hearts everything we are envisioning makes sense but it just does not come to pass.  It is at these moments our faith is really tested.  Pain and suffering become part of your day and you may feel that God is not seeing you through.  Don't give up!!!  It is in these times that the Lord is making a great attempt to bring you back in line with His will.  Everything seems  right in your mind and you think the Lord will bring it to pass because it is what is right and true to you.  Not always!!!  The hardest part of my relationship with the Lord has been at these moments and He tells me to either "wait for my timing" or "we are doing this my way kiddo"  Ouch! that hurts.  Although these times really test our faith God knows best and you will come out victorious if you stay in line with His will and trust Him. 

So... today make that commitment and we will stand in a agreement with you.  When two or more are joined together He is there!!!  That is what His word says... so lets line up today and fix our eyes on Christ in every need you have, keep your eyes open and see His fingerprints, and watch His glory prevail every day in your life.  God Bless!
