Hebrews 12:2a says, "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith." There is so much distractions in this world, so much false lights that bedazzle and blind our eyes to the true light of the world. We must have a steady focal point for our attention so that we will not be distracted and fall by the wayside like so many blind and blinded travelers on the face of the earth. Only God and His powerful promises can keep us from stumbling and sinking into the quagmire of the world's sinfulness and total depravity. We can live a very simple life, dedicating and surrendering everything to the Lord for His pleasure and glory alone. We can entrust ourselves, our family, our household and loved ones to the love, care, guidance and protection of the Lord. We can pray to God that He covers us, our family, household and loved ones with the precious blood of His beloved Son- Jesus Christ, so that we can be spared and protected against the unrelenting onslaught of the enemy. Prayers for ourselves, our family, loved ones and for those whom the Lord have placed in our hearts as burdens are the mighty force that enable angels to move about and battle the terrible schemes of the enemies. Mind you, most of the traumas, trials, pains and sufferings we are enduring in this world are caused by the evil ones who are so envious of the whole human race because each person still has the chance to be saved if he accepts Jesus Christ as his Lord and savior and surrender his life to Him. Not so with the fallen ones. They were doomed to eternal death together with those they can mislead to their fate. So whatever the situation maybe, however grim and burdensome your trials maybe, just fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. Let us claim His divine promises and the battle becomes His for our victory.
