Looking Unto Jesus



THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 2011
LOOKING UNTO JESUS

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2).
If you should ask me what is happening in the world right now, I would answer,
“Everything Jesus warned us would happen in the last days!” He warned of
men’s hearts failing them with fear from beholding the things happening on
earth. He warned of earthquakes in various places—nations rising against
nations—ethnic group against ethnic group.

We have lived to see the beginning of all the end-time prophecies being
fulfilled before our very eyes. Consider Luke 21:11, “Great earthquakes in
various places.”

What did Jesus tell us to do when we see all these things coming to pass? He
said, “Look up, lift up your heads (eyes); for your redemption is drawing
near” (21:28).

Oh beloved, if you love Jesus, you should not be surprised or fearful. GOD HAS
EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL.

Yes, we tremble at first seeing and hearing such dire news—but this is the
time to look unto Jesus. He brought us this far—he is the author of our
faith—he will bring us to the finish line with hope and peace, no matter what
happens.

Today, let not any bad news cast down your soul. Look up—keep your entire
focus on Jesus. He is coming very soon.

“Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for he is
faithful that promised” (Hebrews 10:23).

This devotion was such a sweet fragrance for my soul today. 
 I am posting this late past midnight which really
means its yesterdays devotion :)
 This time of night is when I get to really take advantage and get my sweet moments of rest to indulge myself in the Lord. Hope you can slow down a bit and find your quite time to spend with our Lord too !!
Blessings to all dear readers,
~ Marie
