You become like what you gaze upon and behold, so put your eyes on Me! As the old hymn says,
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
-“Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus,” Lemmel
Do not fix your eyes on the circumstances you see currently, for they are subject to change. Rather, keep your eyes on Me. I am the constant and unmovable One who is not like a shifting shadow. As you continue to focus on Me, you will come up and abide in a higher place. You will have peace, even in the midst of the storm. Like the eagle, you will fly high above. “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 12:33).
