Day 4: Keep Your Eyes on Jesus!

When we have been hurt or offended, we have to remember to keep our eyes on Jesus instead of on the pain.  If we continuously focus on the pain, it can lead to sadness or even depression.  It doesn’t mean the pain is not real or we have to ‘pretend’ that the hurt does not exist.  It simply means that we take the pain to Jesus (over and over for as long as it takes).

The enemy wants to remind us every minute of every day of how we have been offended.  We can either agree with the enemy by rehearsing the offense and pain over and over in our minds.  Or, we can agree with Jesus by speaking what His word says to the situation.

Scripture Reading:

Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

Psalms 121: 1-2 (KJV)
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord which made heaven and earth.

Psalms 34:18 (NIV)

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
