Stay Focused on Jesus

Now stay focused on Jesus, who designed and perfected our faith. He endured the cross and ignored the shame of that death because He focused on the joy that was set before Him; and now He is seated beside God on the throne, a place of honor
— Hebrews 12:2

It is important to know that where we position our focus will be a determining factor in our success or failure. It is necessary that we keep our eyes on Jesus. Even when it seems like everything around us looks like it is falling apart, Jesus will be right there in the center to bring us out. Jesus Christ is God's Word.

Remember the story of Peter walking on water? He walked on water as long as he stay focused on Jesus. But when Peter looked around at the high waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Instantly Jesus reached out His hand and rescued him. 

Jesus is right there through the Holy Spirit to reach out His hand like He did with Peter and rescue you and your household today.  Where is Jesus calling you today? Who is He calling you to? Step out in faith as a Believer and stay focused on Jesus as you move to where He is calling you by faith. The Holy Spirit will be with you every step of the way.

Read about Peter and look at Jesus throughout this text. Take note of Jesus' response to Peter, “Faint-heart, what got into you?” Matthew 14:22-33What got into Peter was fear as he began to notice the high waves. This is why we must daily prepare ourselves by reading the Word of God daily, this will not only bring us encouragement but also courage as we focus on Him.

Decree It: I choose to stay focused on Jesus today. He designed and perfected my faith. He endured the cross for me and ignored the shame of His death because He focused on the joy that was set before Him; and now He is seated beside God on the throne, a place of honor. Thank you Jesus.
