Keep Your Eyes on God!
Chosen by God!
God’s unconditional promises should be encouraging to all true believers, regardless of what happens in this world. Because God cannot, will not, lie we can rest assured that He will do everything He has promised to do.
“God is not a man who lies, or a son of man who changes His mind. Does He speak and not act, or promise and not fulfill?” (Numbers 23:19 HCSB)
We cannot let what we see going on around us cause us to get into doubt and unbelief. We must stand firmly on God’s character, as revealed in His Word.
“So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable.” (II Corinthians 4:18 AMP)
In light of the recent acts of terrorism, unrest, and evil running rampant in the world believers can still trust God’s promises. The things that are happening in this world have less to do with God and more to do with man’s sin nature. It may appear that God has abandoned us but that is not true. The Word is very clear about the challenges we will face, as long as we are in this world, and Jesus’ reminder that He has defeated the world.
"I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]" (John 16:33 AMP)
In all of this we must remember that earth is not our home, heaven is our home. We can’t make decisions based on what is temporary, our decisions must be made on what is eternal. God does not, will not, change. When we keep our eyes on Him we are anchored in truth, no matter what is going on around you.
“But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, without love for what is good, traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to the form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people!” (II Timothy 3:1-5 HCSB)
