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.
Being described as either green or sappy is not usually considered to be a compliment. But Irma lay claim to both, and it was her secret to a bountiful life.
Slightly Obsessed #220: We Only Have One Job
The Martha in us makes everything so hard, when the Lord is calling us to be Mary, running toward the sound of His voice; sitting in stillness as His feet; not wasting a moment of our time with Him in distracted busyness. Simply clinging to His every word.
Slightly Obsessed #219: When the Hedge Comes Down, Part 3
Job's soul had been stripped completely down to the dirt. His friends accused him; he defended himself vigorously. Lost in the cacophony was the voice of God. No one seemed to notice.
Except for one.
Slightly Obsessed #218: When the Hedge Comes Down, Part 2
The book of Job is one of the few glimpses given mankind behind the veil into the interaction between God and his created beings. And the revelation is an astounding one. Not only is Satan not in hell, he has access to both heaven and earth.
Slightly Obsessed #217: When the Hedge Comes Down
When we are in the fire, it’s easy to ask God, “Why?” It doesn’t hurt to ask that question, to examine our own hearts. If we can find no explanation for the trial, it’s possible that another drama is being played out behind the scenes.
Slightly Obsessed #216: Daddy Has You
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.
