Isaiah 26:3 – “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you.”
There is no healthy way to sustain ourselves except we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. The world is getting worse.
Since we are foreigners in this world anyway, we need to keep our thoughts on the things above, be heavenly minded. So that we don’t get caught up in the things of the world, it is a necessary requirement. We are looking towards eternity. As eternal beings, we have to understand that the temporary things are just that, temporary. Not saying our vocations aren’t important, they are, as well as other things such as relationships, jobs, bills, etc. However, they are all temporary.
Eternity needs to be our prioritized focus. As we walk with Jesus day by day, He leads us by His Holy Spirit on what to prioritize. Jesus is first and then all else. “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:33.
We have to hold on to what’s important as the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy. As with the sower of seed, taking your eyes off the prize gives the enemy opportunity to do just that.
I just encourage you today to keep your eyes and mind on Jesus no matter what else is going on.
