Eyes on the Prize
Who else can rescue us if not God? He has given us everything we need, but we only have to give Him our time. If you walk with God, He will be your friend. He will protect you when calamity surrounds you in all directions. He will be your strength in times of weakness. He will be your rock, your fortress.
“My eyes are fixed on you, O God, in you I take refuge” Psalm 141:8
Moses could not speak very well, but God put words in his mouth. Gideon was not a warrior, but God helped him conquer Midianites. Esther was an orphan in exile, but God made her a Queen and rescued the Jews through her. The Bible shows us how God works through the most unlikely people and in the most surprising ways, encouraging us to look for signs of God’s direction in our own lives as well.
“He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning” Psalm 141:8
Seek God and always do what is right in His sight regardless of what may happen. You may be alone, you may have to stand for the Lord against the world, but remember God is always in control and will do great wonders.
The enemy’s fortress can be brought down only by prayer and fasting.
Esther fasted and prayed for her people’s deliverance. Do not miss out on the opportunity that God gives you to come to Him. He is waiting to deliver you, increase you and bless you.
If you have not chosen the Kingdom of God first, in the end, it makes no difference what you have chosen instead. Put God first, so you’ll never be last. The secret of a happy life is giving God the first part of your day, the first priority to every decision, and the first place in your heart.
When you seek God first in your daily pursuits, He promises to add all blessings to your life.
“Whether you ear or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God”. 1 Corinthians 10:31
Placing Him first in your life should be your daily goal, the prime pursuit amid all your other pursuits. As God is exalted to the right place in our lives, a thousand problems will be solved all at once. The peace He has promised is at your doorstep. Seek him to be set free!
