Turn your eyes upon Jesus

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of the world
Will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace

This is the one of the few songs that i can just keep repeating over and over again without getting tired of it. I tried to amplify the lyrics a little…

Fix your gaze not on things of the world, your problems, your worries, your anxieties, but on Jesus and everything about Jesus (His majesty, power, loveliness). Look full by putting on the new self that God has given us the freedom to (refer to Col 3). And the things of the world, your problems and every other thing that is bothering you will grow smaller and smaller. Let God’s glory and power be brighter than it.

Colossians 3:
12
Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
13
Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.
15
And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.

  1. And the things of the world
    Will grow strangely dim
    In the light of His glory and grace

    The things of the world are still present… but somehow they seem nothing (or disappear) as compared to HIS presence, HIS glory, HIS grace. HE envelopes us with HIS peace that surpasses all understanding…

    It’s a decisive choice of ours to turn to HIM, to cast all (100%) of our cares to HIM and do not look back at the issues but fully upon HIM. Meditating and confessing HIS goodness, HIS word. Faith comes by hearing; hearing the word of GOD. We shall walk by faith and not by sight. Focus not on the present.

  2. i suddenly have this two pictures in mind:
    1) seeing the problem and God behind it
    2) seeing God only (problem behind God)

    I realized that the more we look at the problem, we will never be able to see God’s fullness. But if we commit the problem behind the Lord, we will be able to see God’s awesomeness. He is so big, so much bigger than the problem that we will not be disturbed, worried by the problem.

    I think each time we face a problem, we see how big it is, but always remembering that God can be bigger. And when we put God in front, we see that “wahh God this one you also can!” and grasp His power more. How nice to just look at God and God only!=)
