Refer: 14:22-34; Hebrews 12:1-3; Revelations 1:7-9;21:5-7;22:12-14 (KJV)
While I was swimming with my husband in the public pool, I burst to laughter upon catching a glimpse in the way he swam. Abruptly, I lost control and was on the verge of drowning. I tried my best to stop laughing. I could not stop it. I prayed to the Lord for help. Then words came to my mind, “I need to look away”. As I did so, my laughter stop and again, words came to me to focus to reach the end of the pool. Upon listening to the advice, my focus is clear and no longer upon my husband’s swimming style.
Then I remembered the Bible where Peter lost his focus when the storm came while walking on the water towards Jesus. The Apostle Paul guides us clearly from the book of Hebrews to fix our focus upon Jesus who is the Author and Finisher of our faith.
Do remember what is stated in the book of Revelations that Jesus says that He is the Alpha and Omega.
Likewise, we need to fix our focus upon Jesus while we live on earth.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for reminding me about Your Word as it begins to work in mightily in my heart as I experience and apply it in my daily lives. Thank You for Your guidance whenever I need it.
