Fixated?

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9

 What is it you are fixated on? Not in an obsessive compulsive sort of way but what captures your attention or gets the majority of your free time? In Hebrews 12:2 it says "fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." To 'fix' it to purposely set your eyes as if concrete was poured and they are 'set' firm and hard. Instead of being concerned with the evil all around us we are to 'fix' our gaze straight ahead right at the cross of Jesus Christ. He's got our back.

He is wanting you to be sick at heart over Satan's destruction but wants you 'fixed' on Him and His awesome power for He has overcome this world. Today stop what you are doing and confess to Jesus your worry and fear then 'fix' your gaze upon Him.

 PRAYER: Help me Lord not fall into Satan's trap of fear and worry. You are greater and have overcome this world. I put my hope in you today and always. In Jesus' name. Amen.
