FIX YOUR EYES ON GODStella Dhinakaran

I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.    (Psalm 16:8)

The Dhinakarans Dearly beloved,

Remember that the presence of the Almighty God is always with you.

In Acts 13:22, the Lord says two things about David: “A man after My own heart” because “He will do all My will.” So when you also read the Word of God carefully, keep it in your heart and have fellowship with the Lord- offering a life of prayer to Him by talking to Him- He will show you how to walk in His will.

We read in Isaiah 58:11, “The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail” (Isaiah 58:11).

The Lord will talk to us daily and instruct us (Psalm 32:8; Isaiah 48:17; 30:21). He will hold our hands and lead us in the right path. Look at David! In Psalm 63:1,6 and 55:17, we see how He sought the Lord with devotion and reverence. Through this, he discovered the will of God, walked accordingly and lived with Godly fear. Besides, in I Kings 15:5, we see him fulfilling all the things commanded by God. Yet we read in the Bible that he sinned in one matter. But we also see that he realized it and received pardon from the Lord by crying and lamenting over it (Psalm 51).

It is necessary that we look up to the Cross when we become weak. Our Lord bore all our sins, curses and weaknesses on His body and carried them away on the Cross. So, in times of weakness, when we pray saying, “Lord, let your strength be made perfect in my weakness,” He will pour down His grace upon us.

Apostle Paul explains through his experience that God’s grace will come upon us, strengthen us and remove all our weaknesses (II Corinthians 12:9). Besides, he also reveals his zeal thus in the verse below, “Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (II Corinthians 12:10).

Yes, my dear children, enjoy the above experiences which shows how you can receive divine blessings and become like stall-fed calves. Receive deliverance from your weakness, sickness and blessings from God.

David the Psalmist says, “I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken” (Psalm 16:8). Always fix your eyes only on the Lord who is always near you and whose hand is ready to help you. Then you will not be anxious about any situation; nothing can make you stumble. As you trust in Him, your heart will be full of peace and then you will obtain all of His blessings.

Prayer:

Loving Lord Jesus,

I fix my eyes only on You who is always ready to help me. Please show me the right way through Your Word and help me to walk in Your will. Please forgive all my shortcomings which stop my blessings. Pour down Your grace upon me, remove my weaknesses and strengthen me. Let my heart receive Your peace as I place my trust in You. Hold my hand and lead me in the right path that leads to blessing.

In Your matchless name I pray,

Amen.
