PASTOR OF THE WEEK
Turn your eyes to God
PASTOR FELIX CHIMBA writes
WE are now in the end time of the end times, in the last days of the last days.
For us to live and not to survive in this end time we have to fix our eyes on God, the Creator, the Maker, the Father of all lights, the source of all life.
We have to depend on Him, He is dependable. We have to rely on Him, He is reliable.
We have to trust Him, He can be trusted.
He is not a man that He should lie nor the son of man that he should change his mind.
He is the only reliable source of true and real life.
To focus means to look attentively and expectantly with a steady and absorbing gaze. This look on God brings about divine help in form of salvation, healing, deliverance and protection. Numbers 21:8-9.
It is a God – honoring, God answering, fixed and absorbing gaze.
This look or focus is not an ordinary or fleeting glance or gaze.
We need to focus on God to get godly results in this season and beyond.
We need to focus on GOD to get supernatural results. Matthew 14:22-33.
Instead of focussing or concentrating on problems and getting discouraged. We must focus on God and meditate on his promises. God’s promises are yes and amen according 2 Corinthians 1:20
Lets focus on God, not problems. Lets listen more to God, not our insecurities in this season and beyond. Lets rely on God, not our strength.
I would like to encourage us to FOCUS on our relationship with God rather than the rules of religion.
We focus on God not the storm. Nothing done with the focus on God is ever a waste of time.
‘When we focus on giants – we stumble but when we focus on GOD – giants tumble’ – Max Lucado.
‘ If the will of God is your focus, I have no doubt God has so much more for you as you commit to actively serving Him and his purpose.’ – Pastor Brian Houston.
We focus on our reliable source of salvation, preservation and provisions.
2 Corinthians 1:3 GNB: Let us give thanks to the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the merciful father, the God from who all help comes from.
As a believer, born again and filled with the Holy Ghost, your Source is God, not man (Ps. 23:1) Quit depending on man for favour or help. Man is only a channel through which God dispenses His blessing, but man isn’t the source, God is.
To be born again is to have God as your source. “In Him we live, move and have our being” (Acts 17:28). Walk in this consciousness: God is your Father and your source. As a child of God, we must ask with confidence, not beggarly. We must ask as sons, not servants. Jesus told His disciples;
Luke 11:11-13 Kjv: If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
This is God’s word to you. The economy of Heaven is doing just fine and it’s God’s duty to provide for His children. Quit depending on man. Your help is not from man but from God (Ps.121:1,2).
1 Corinthians 3:21 Kjv:* Therefore , let no one boast in man, for all things are yours.
