Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Heb 12:2 KJV
The position of your focus determines the progression of your story. Faith demands for one to focus on a constant object and the world we live in is never constant. Surrendering your focus on the world and its events means that you will never have a moment of rest.
The writer of Hebrews points us to Jesus, the chief leader, captain and the consummator of our faith. He faced the cross which had shame in it but He chose to ignore the gory details of the cross and chose rather to look at the joy that was after the cross. He chose to despise the shame associated with dying on the cross but rather focussed on the results of it all. Today, He is gloriously sitting at the right hand of the throne of God, a sign of victory over all the work of His enemies.
As you move forward in faith, there are times were taking a stand of faith might mean shame and pain. Well, the captain of our faith has shown us the example. Shift your eyes from the chaos and focus on Jesus. He is a constant; focusing on Him will assure you of joy in the midst of the chaos. Peace will accompany you in the midst of the storm.
You will produce results because of faith. Don’t allow the challenges around you to snub you of the prize of your faith. There is rest ahead for those who endure in faith. Whatsoever is born of God is victorious over the world and faith is that victory that conquers the world (1 John 5:4). Unleash your faith on stubborn circumstances as you keep your eyes on Jesus.
That business is turning around because of faith, that disease has lost its power over you as you shift your focus from it to the Captain and completer of your faith! That marriage is turning around for your good. The elusive is becoming an easy find for you. Faith pleases God and today it is positioning you in His presence.
I am receiving my results because of faith. I fix my eyes on Jesus and refuse to allow the circumstances around me to snub me of the prize of my faith.
