The Bible tells us in Hebrews 12:2, “looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith;” that’s how we are to run this race we’re in. However, at times there are those “issues” in life, be it financial, familial, medical, or otherwise, that intrude and distract. But Jesus Christ has given us a remedy, Himself.
When Peter began to sink into the sea (Matthew 14:30), it was because He started to look at the evidence around him, telling him he was crazy for stepping out of the boat. The wind and the waves were matters of circumstance that distracted him from Jesus Christ. That’s when he started to fall.
Could it be that we face the same test? When problems arise, it’s not that we should ignore them and pretend they’re not there, but we should NEVER lose our focus, we should never lose our relationship with Jesus Christ. Rather, we should cling to Him all the more and He will see us through the circumstances of life.
The psalmist wrote, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.” (Psalm 121:1-3).
Keep your eyes on Jesus, and ignore the circumstantial evidence, His witness is true and He will see you through!!!
