As we go through our daily lives, we tend to look at what “WE” should do. I should do this…I should do that. I should pray more. I should tithe more. I should read the Bible more. I should have helped more. I shouldn’t have watched that show. I shouldn’t have lost my temper. I shouldn’t have had that nasty thought. And so on, and so on, and so on.
Satan loves to keep us in this type of mindset. Every time something goes wrong, he loves to make us look at what we should or should not have done. Making us feel bad, stressed, or worried.
However, what we need to realize is that God does not see us when He looks from Heaven. He sees Jesus. I John 4:17 “…because as He is, so are we in this world.”
When you accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, you accepted Jesus as your substitute. It is no longer YOUR effort but HIS. God wants you to understand that you are IN CHRIST JESUS! That means every single time you see yourself lacking, look to Jesus and His finished work.
We can’t earn God’s love or blessings…we already have them. We can not do more because Jesus already did. Everything that comes against us, Jesus already conquered. All we need to do is rest in His finished work because Jesus lives within us.
- When a sickness is attacking you, See Jesus.
- When your finances are depleting, See Jesus.
- When you are struggling with addictions, See Jesus.
- When you need a miraculous solution, See Jesus.
So, let’s stop struggling and blaming ourselves today. Instead, let’s be more like David in the Psalms when He prayed “Look upon your anointed one (Jesus) and bless me”. It is by embracing Jesus and resting in His finished work, our answers lie. You may not be able to see or touch your solution yet. But, HE is your answer. Nothing that comes against you will prosper.
