What is having your attention, God or the unpleasant situation in your life? God commands us to look unto Him for salvation from sin, and deliverance from satanic oppression and all manner of sickness and disease. Your challenges are magnified when you set your focus on them. On the other hand, looking unto Jesus magnifies Him to reveal more of His majesty, power, glory and love. With your eyes on Jesus, you are sure to be victorious in the battles of life.
There are two contrary spiritual laws in operation and you are either under one regime or the other. They are the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus and the law of sin and death: the former sets one free from the latter. We are saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus that the law of sin and death may no longer have dominion over us. This grace of God that brings salvation teaches us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.
God fights for those who believe in Jesus, and have Him as their Lord and personal Saviour. Because God was with Joseph, when his brothers tried to kill his dreams, He turned their evil plot around to favour Joseph in the end. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all – Psalm 34:19. Victory is guaranteed for those who are on the Lord's side. The battle line has been drawn and you must declare your position.
The works of the flesh will manifest wherever the flesh is in control. As you live in this body of clay, your members (eyes, ears, hands, feet, tongue, etc.) will be always tempted to lead you into sin. Even Jesus was tempted while in the flesh, but glory be to God; He overcame. To overcome like Jesus, you must yield your body to Him with the strong determination to always obey God rather than men.
There are many things calling for your attention in life but only one thing really matters the most. The most important thing is securing the assurance of spending your eternity with God. After your education, what next? After getting married and raising a family, what next? After rising to the peak of your career, what next? Eventually death will come if Jesus delays His coming, but where will you spend eternity?
