Reflections *8 – Keep your eyes upon JESUS

Mine eyes are upon thee, Oh Lord!
My heart sings a melody
The winds they blow
The raging of the sea But mine eyes are upon thee

Every work that the Holy Spirit begins in our life, He is able to bring to completion. Matthew 14th chapter records the incident of the Lord walking on the water. Peter was the only man who was able to walk on the water. It is a marvelous feat and ever since we have not heard or read about any such instances happening anywhere around the world.

Here we read that the Lord was walking on the water and Peter also desired to and started to walk on the water as the Lord called Him. Now how long was he able to walk on the water? Till the time His eyes were on the Lord, Peter walked on the water. When his eyes shifted from the Lord to the rough winds, then he started to sink. Let us learn our lessons from this practical demonstration. As we walk in faith we must develop the habit of looking unto the Lord and willfully avoid what circumstances or negative voices around us have to say.

Looking unto Jesus – Peter walks on water

As we walk on the waters with our eyes fixed upon Jesus, let us praise Him and worship Him with all our heart, soul, strength and mind. Let us be determined only to look to the Lord, having faith on His Word and He will complete the good work that He has begun in our lives.

We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, and not on the circumstances.

Prayer: Loving Heavenly Father, Help and save me in every difficult situation.  I pray that you will sustain and not allow my foot to slip. I pray that I will, continually keep my eyes upon you no matter what the situation. Help me to continue to seek you every day in prayer and in the reading of your Word. In Jesus name I pray.

Keep your eyes upon Jesus – whether calm  or troubled sea
