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.
As I sat at the red light, a pick-up pulled up beside me in the other lane. The window was rolled down, and the driver rested his arm lazily on the door ledge. A chihuahua fur baby sat perched in the crook of the driver’s arm, yapping with all its tiny might at the pickup in front of me.
Slightly Obsessed #215: Sunday School Had It Right
A Ugandan friend once told us that growing up in Sunday school, he quickly learned how to answer the Bible questions in class. “The right answer,” he said with a smile, “is always, ‘Jesus.’" As a child, no matter what question was posed in class, he always answered, “Jesus.”
Slightly Obsessed #214: Friendly Fire
In 1788, the Austrian army turned on itself and decimated its own ranks, allowing its enemy to walk in and take the city. Are we allowing the same thing to happen on the spiritual battlefield?
Slightly Obsessed #213: God of the Mountains
While life is so uncertain, one thing is: God loves us so much, and He will never abandon us. No matter what happens in the coming days, months, or years, God is in control. And He will give us the strength to overcome any trial that comes our way.
Jordan For Jesus #039: Find the GOLD in People
Find the GOLD in people. If you only see fault, error, wrongs, sins, and what is bad, in people, then you have no time to love them. You cannot judge people and love people, at the same time, which is why the Word of God instructs us to look for what is good in people. When we look for the good, in people, we are choosing to see people through the eyes of God.
Slightly Obsessed #212: Believe
Sometimes it feels like just getting out of bed sets us up for defeat. But we shouldn’t be surprised. God clued us in thousands of years ago in the book of Job when He warned us that we are born for trouble as surely as sparks from a fire will fly up into the sky.
