Apostle Grace Lubega
Hebrews 12:2(MSG); Keep your eyes on [Jesus], who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed–that exhilarating finish in and with God–he could put up with anything along the way: cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s [there], in the place of honor, right alongside God.
Christ is our pattern. Everything He said and did set an example of how we are to live as children of the Most High God. Our theme scripture instructs us to watch Him.
When we examine the life of Christ, we find therein how we ought to respond to circumstances. Our theme scripture says we should watch how He does it.
What did He do when He was caught in a storm? He slept! It is divine wisdom to sleep through storms.
What did He do when He met a lame man, a blind man, a dead child? He commanded the lame to walk, the blind to see and the dead to rise.
It is divine to walk in the simplicity of miracles.
What did He do when a fig tree refused to yield its fruit to Him? He cursed it. It is divine to expect provision from things in and out of their season.
What did He do in the face of betrayal? He forgave. It is divine nature to walk by the royal law of love.
Jesus showed us how to live the God life no matter the situation. That is the reason we set our eyes on Him and why we look to Him at all times.
Glory to God!

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank you for your Word. My eyes are set on you. I do as I see my father do. My life is an example of the God life lived to the fullest. I respond to circumstances with the consciousness that it is you responding in me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
