Jordan For Jesus #035 "For Life (All I Need Is Jesus)" by Jordan Elizabeth on 2015-01-29 11:05:21
“In the morning rest your elbows on the windowsills of heaven. Gaze upon the Lord and with that vision in your heart go forth to greet the day.”
In life, there are so many distractions. Distractions are anything that separates you from God and that pulls you away from God rather than drawing you closer to Him. These distractions are very real and satan sends these distractions to distract God’s people from keeping their eyes on Jesus.
It is so important to keep our eyes focused on Jesus! If we take our eyes off of Jesus, we are pulled away from Him by the distractions sent by satan.
This is satan’s purpose and intent to separate us from Christ Jesus and distance our relationship with Him. You see, satan wants our soul just as badly as God does. Therefore, he will do everything in his power to get it. Even if that means sending distractions, in the process, if he knows that is what it takes to get your soul. Satan knows just what to say and do to get you to take your eyes off of Jesus. He is sneaky, but nothing can separate God’s people from God Himself. We belong to God.
Nothing can take us out of the Lord’s grasp. Although, we can be tempted to take our eyes off of Jesus, but this is the constant daily battle that everyone fights as a Christian. We must stay focused on the Lord so we are not tempted and deceived by satan.
As Christians, we must have the kind of heart that says, “Jesus, I want You for life because I know that all else fades away.” If we have this kind of heart, we will not be tempted and deceived to take our eyes off of Jesus and focus on distractions sent by satan.

Slightly Obsessed #203: God Doesn’t Need Our Thanks
If we were to walk through an open door to heaven as the apostle John did in a vision during his imprisonment on Patmos, we would not find a forlorn father awaiting a phone call from his children, but a royal residence filled with glory.
Slightly Obsessed #202: A Portrait of Faith: Living to Please God
The Scriptures tell us that it is impossible to please God without faith. But how does pleasing God present evidence of our faith to a dying world?
Slightly Obsessed #201: A Portrait of Faith: Thirsty
The Bible assures us that our faith is the evidence of an unseen world and its promises. But faith is not just belief. It is the expression of our belief before God and man.
So then, what does faith look like?
Slightly Obsessed #200: God Sees Your Despair
She was well-dressed, beautiful, and accomplished. She had just flown across the country to teach at a conference and looked fully the part: Sharp. Witty. Color-coordinated. And she nearly left with that image safely in place, until God revealed her despair.
Slightly Obsessed #199: Let No One Take Your Song
If nothing else good should happen to us except salvation, it is enough to fill our every moment with His praise.
