Putting our Faith in the right places: Jesus

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2

Where do you seek your help and faith from?

Too many times we seek the wrong places in times of need;

When we seek Ourselves,

It’ll eventually get worse and worse;

–Polluting into sin
–Minds and eyes wandering into places it shouldn’t
And this will only lead to wicked and lustful things.

When we seek Others,

Much like Judas, who after spending 3 years with Jesus, betrayed him,

You too, will be betrayed by your loved ones, and

You too, will betray others.

When we seek Satan,

When we make a deal with the devil,

Giving up certain parts of our faith or our testimony,

Sure, you may get that girl,

Sure, you may get that house,

But in the end,

You’ll never now which direction you’ll fall for your inevitable demise,

Satan doesn’t care one bit about you.

Where do you seek your help and faith from?

Remember,

God is a God of many chances.

Philippians 3:13-14 tells us to forget our past and move to FORWARD
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.The Devil has a way of attacking you through your past,

Tell the Devil,

“The Bible says my past is GONE! (thru Jesus)”

Even though we may stumble by the rocks that trip us up,

If we fix our eyes on Jesus,

We have a target that will sustain us through any situation.
