GOD TRACKING IS PRAYING WITH YOUR EYES ON JESUS AND NOT YOUR PROBLEM
by Dudley Anderson
8/24/2018 / Devotionals
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
My blood ran cold as my wife relayed the message to me that she’d just received from my daughter-in-law, “Ruben has been rushed to hospital with a temperature in excess of 39 degrees Celsius!” Our first grandson had taken our lives by storm; I wasn’t going to sit back and allow the devil to take his life from him. Karen and I rushed to the hospital and, together with my son and his wife we laid hands on his little body, claiming God’s healing Word. At that moment I just knew Ruben would be alright. However, the next day when we arrived to visit him, we found his parents outside the ward, in tears. Little Ruben had deteriorated through the night and at one point, stopped breathing. Medics resuscitated him and then rushed him to intensive care. Yet, with hundreds of people praying for him around the world, I just knew he would be alright.
After only 24 hours in ICU Ruben was discharged back to his ward. Several tests were done but the doctors found nothing wrong with him! A day later he was home. By God’s grace and comfort, the family had pressed in and taken God at his Word.
Oswald Chambers said, “We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.” Could be you’re facing a crisis right now, as my family did that time. Let me encourage you to not look at your problem when you pray but look through it with your eyes set on Christ. God’s word is jam-packed with promise and hope. Receive his word and walk in the hope it offers. You see, the Lord is already on the other side of your difficulty making way for you to get there. No matter what the devil throws at you; no matter how circumstances may bend in the process, know that your God is faithful, and he is quick to deliver you.
God-tracking is praying with your eyes on Jesus and not your problem
DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP AND PRAY
I fix my eyes on Jesus and not my problem by presenting my prayer to you with thanksgiving
“Dear Lord, I just feel as though I can’t go on any more. It seems as though this problem has consumed me. But dear Lord I know that you know what I’m going through today. Help me to hold on to your promises and the hope your words offer me. Help me to track your path until I eventually get to the other side of my worries. I cast my anxieties on you right now! Lord forgive me for my doubts. I thank you that you will meet my need and help me get over this mountain. I fix my eyes on Jesus and not my problem by presenting my prayer to you with thanksgiving, O God. Thank you for answering my call. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”
