Immovable
Immovable

By Wayne McDonald

Psalm 16:8, “I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.” When you have a clear vision of the Lord Jesus in resurrection splendor defeat and discouragement will be driven far from you.
 
David the Psalmist declared that he kept the Lord befor him continually. If you are going through a hard time and you might be thinking to yourself, “How am I going to get through this?” The answer is simple, “Keep your eyes on Jesus.”

Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. Hebrews 12:2, “Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, who is the leader and the source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also bringing it’s perfection]. He for the joy that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” We must keep our eyes on Jesus.

When the Apostle Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, he stayed afloat as long as he kept his eyes on Jesus. When he took his eyes off of Him he began to sink. Keep your eyes on Jesus and you will not sink.
 
Keep the Lord before you by keeping your mind on Him. When you do this you will become immovable. Keep in mind that everybody is going through something. God will be faithful to bring you out just don’t take your focus off of Him.
