Keep Your Eyes On God, Spark Friends!
Thursday, February 04, 2016
When you're walking with your eyes on your feet, you have no idea where you're going. The experience is entirely self-centered. There's no perspective, because you can't see how you fit into the larger landscape. The only way to make a straight line of footprints in the snow is to ignore your feet. Instead, look directly ahead and find a fence post, street sign, or tree in the distance. Then, with your eyes fixed on that target, start to walk towards it. If you've locked your focus on something other than yourself, the path will be straight every time. The same is true in our spiritual lives. If we walk through life concentrating inwardly, we'll fail to see the bigger picture and likely go off course. But when we focus beyond ourselves, fixing our thoughts and spiritual eyes on Jesus Christ, we can trust our path will be straight and trustworthy every step of the way (Isa. 26:3 NLT).
