Eyes On

The weather is changing again, the leaves are falling again, the winter is around the corner again. It can feel like we are are walking in circles year after year not seeing what God has said manifest. The enemy would love for us to get dizzy in the walk; doubt what we heard; and tell us we are crazy to still be believing what God told us. But we keep walking, we keep waiting, we keep watching, we keep hoping. If God said it, God will do it. There is no other explanation for why you still believe despite all the days, weeks, months and years of unanswered prayers for promises you know He spoke.

Psalm 146:6-9 says this about God, “He made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them. He keeps every promise forever. He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry. The LORD frees the prisoners. The LORD opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are weighed down. The LORD loves the godly. The LORD protects the foreigners among us. He cares for the orphans and widows, but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.”

He is not a God that changes, if the Psalmist knew this about God that is why we know this about God. I know it’s hard, I know it’s long, I know it’s frustrating, but can I tell you what alleviates all of that? Spending time with God. I know it sounds simple, but literally He makes us content and contentment gives us joy. Joy then becomes our strength and we realize He is the one that really matters. Then we sing a little louder in the presence of our enemies; we speak Jesus over our families; and we thank God! My friends, what you really long for is not a promise fulfilled, but the One who made the promise to you. He is so satisfying and when you lock eyes with Him, we realize all we ever needed we find in you Jesus.
