Saturday morning my daughters volleyball game was at a high school and this sign was posted on the window of the coaches office. So often life can take its toll on us. It can wipe us out with tragedies, divorce, financial burdens, job loss and sometimes death. I don’t know about you, but sometimes when the unexpected makes a crash landing into my life my automatic response isn’t to run to Jesus. I can tell others in a trial what to do and Who to lean on, but sometimes I am quick to take my eyes off of Jesus.
Satan is relentless in his role as the prince of darkness. He has a three-part mission goal: kill, steal and destroy. We’re told to be alert to his madness. We have to do WHATEVER IT TAKES to stay focused on Jesus.
Do WHATEVER IT TAKES…
~To read the Bible daily
~To have and keep a fixed gaze on Jesus.
~To draw near to Jesus before, during and after the storms of life.
~To not let Satan take any ground of your heart.
I want God and I need to let God do WHATEVER IT TAKES to keep me on the path of righteousness.
Our moving away from God causes our eyes to be blinded to the things He is doing. Our minds feel entitled to the things He will do. Our hearts are calloused to the things He has already done. It leaves us vacant and waffling and so grossly unfulfilled yet engrossed in the life of our flesh that it takes an act of God to point us back in the right direction. ~Lisa Whittle
I want God…WHATEVER IT TAKES.
Proverbs 4:25 Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you.
