A lot of times we forget to check where our eyes are, where they actually are focused. I have caught myself unknowingly looking everywhere but into the eyes of Jesus. Lord, forgive me. There is power when you look into His face, when you ask him to help you keep your eyes fixed on him. When our eyes our fixed on him, all that fear and anxiety suddenly isn’t so big because we’re looking into the eyes of our Jesus who defeated death!!! For goodness sake we have no reason to be afraid because our God is greater. When we believed in Him, we were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit [Eph 1:13] and if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you [Romans 8:11]. As God’s sons and daughters we aren’t meant to live defeated, we are meant to live in the power of the cross- knowing that our God defeated death and is victorious and that same power is within us because we received power when the Holy Spirit came upon us. Lord, help us live in your victory, keeping our eyes on you knowing that you are at our right hand and because of you we will not be shaken.
