Hebrews 12:1-3

1.  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

2.  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

3.  For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

Who you look to determines how far you can go in life. It can be a distraction sometimes to surround yourself with people who you think can help you to achieve a purpose as it would become hard for you to look and trust God for everything you need when already you are surrounded by people you think are there to help you

What can man give to you? Can man keep you alive? Man cannot even heal himself. Man cannot receive anything except it is given to him by God. Except God touches man\’s heart to be of help to another man. If he gives you money, can he give you prosperity? Because is God that gives the power to make wealth. \”Do not put your trust in princes nor in a son of man in whom there is no help\”. (Psalm 146:3).

Rather than run after men all the time depending on him for help why not spend time chasing God. \”His eyes are secretly fixed on the helpless\”. (Psalm 10:8(b)) God can turn your life and that of your generation around forever. You dont need an appointment to see God; He is everywhere and willing to help you.A life that looks to Jesus is a life of peace, joy and love.

A person who looks to Jesus would not depend on any man to live; his future is secured in Jesus Christ. \”Blessed are those who put their trust in Him\”. Psalm 2:12 b

The Christian faith is a race and we cannot finish the race without the help of God. Our confidence in succeeding in this race is placed in Jesus Christ! We are encouraged to look unto Him and Him alone. Turn away from your past – failures, successes, sins and so on, and look unto Jesus Christ. We look to Christ because of who He is, what He did and the fact that He reigns all the time.

Who is He? He is the author and finisher of our faith. Jesus knows everything about our earthly race. Indeed, He ran His in faith because He is the author and finisher of faith. He is the perfect example to follow.

When we look up to Jesus; He will perfect what He began in our lives Those who look unto God cannot be put to shame. You cannot trust in God and be put to shame.

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2).

Never look unto man; look to Jesus alone, and He will direct things to begin to happen for you. He is higher than the highest. He is a very present help when you are faced with lifes challenges (Psalms 46:1 ). Never shift your gaze off Jesus no matter what comes your way.

Happy Reading And May You Be Blessed 🙏.
