If you want to fail miserably in delighting in God—keep your eyes on others. Chase their acceptance, emulate their successes, critique their weaknesses.
No matter what direction you take, what temptation surrounds you, or what obstacles are in your path, the Bible gives clear instructions for success: Keep your focus on Jesus. Look to Him alone as your example, your guide, and your moral standard and you'll find supernatural peace and security, no matter what you're facing in life.
How do we keep our eyes on Jesus? By allowing Him to be the number one influence on our daily choices—not finances, fear, or the approval of others. So, fix your eyes on Jesus today and learn from Him, who made Himself low, so that your soul might soar high for God.
Heb 12:1b-2 “And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.”
