Fix My Eyes
As you have already learned, I enjoy listening to Christian music and using it as a weapon against the enemy. I believe music is one of Satan’s greatest weapons. Satan was originally created as an angel who worshipped God. Now that he has fallen due to pride, I believe he uses music to negatively influence people. Therefore, we need to guard our ears and fill our minds with uplifting songs.
As I was running errands this past weekend, I was listening to our local Christian radio station, where they were counting down the top 20 Christian songs. To my surprise, I turned it on just in time to hear the #1 song. Fix My Eyes, by For King and Country held the top slot. I have heard that song a million times, but I had an aha moment and knew it would fit into my first blog.
If there has ever been a time when we needed to fix our eyes on Jesus, it is now. Hearing about all the tragedy around the world, from violence, persecution, disease, and suicide, reminds me that Jesus is coming soon. Are our eyes fixed on us, the news, or are they fixed on Jesus? To fix means to fasten something securely in a particular place or position. It also means to direct one’s eyes, attention, or mind steadily or unwaveringly.
I Corinthians 15:58 reminds us to be steadfast and immovable. Steadfast means to be firm, fixed, and constant. Immovable means to be firm and fixed. I think I see a theme here. We need to be fixed on Jesus. The verse goes on to say, always abounding in the work of the Lord. We need to be about the Father’s business as Jesus was (Luke 2:49), knowing that our labor is not in vain. God sees our labor, and we shall reap if we do not lose heart. (Galatians 6:9)
Hebrews 10:23 tells us to hold fast the confession of our hope, without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.
God is faithful, and what He has promised will come to pass. Jesus will return again. It could be today. Matthew 24:37-44
Are you ready for His coming? Are your eyes fixed on Him? Fix my eyes on you Lord!
Let’s run our race with endurance… Focusing on Jesus, THE CHAMPION of our Faith Run.
