Hebrews 12:2 (NKJV) Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.
There is a song we used to sing, and it went like this: “Look to Jesus and believe, look to Jesus and receive.” That is the truth! When we look to Jesus believing, He seems to get everything put together for us. I want my life to be a reflection of Him. The way that I see a reflection is by looking into a mirror.
This verse is saying to us to look to Jesus. He is the One that began this work in us, and He is the One that will bring it to completion. The NASB says it like this, “Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith.” I like that! What I have to do is fix my eyes on Him, and He will do the rest. He started this work in my life many years ago. For some of you, it could be many years, or just a few days, but it does not matter. What matters is that He is going to do a perfect work within us.
I always say it like this: “It is all about Jesus!” When I get me out of the way, and let Him be Lord and King of my life, everything just seems to work out. When I try to make me king in my life, things just seem to go downhill. You know, He made us, and He can sure finish this up in us.
So today, be encouraged. He has got your life in the palm of His big hand, and He will not let you down. He started it, and He will complete it. That is great!
Confession: Today I am encouraged, because I see that what God has started in my life, He will bring to completion. This is not about me. It is about Christ in me, and He cannot fail!
