I Will Lift My Eyes

Discussion in 'Thoughts for Today' started by SueJLove, Nov 29, 2015.

  1. Hebrews 12:2 says: “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

    In 2 Corinthians 4:18 we read: “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

    When we lift our eyes to the heavens and/or we fix our eyes on Jesus, this is not speaking merely of the use of our physical eyes, but this is speaking of our whole being – thoughts, attitudes, heart, emotion, and will. This means that the central focus of our lives, in all we do, think, are and speak is centered in Jesus Christ and his divine will for our lives, because of all that he has done for us in saving us from sin. We look to God, not to man, and not to the things of the world for our help, for all that we need, and to give us the strength and courage to live each and every day of our lives for Him and for His glory. And, God is faithful. “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness” (2 Pet. 1:3 NIV ’84).

    I Will Lift My Eyes / An Original Work / December 12, 2012

    Based off Psalms 121-125

    I will lift my eyes to my Lord Most High.
    My help comes from Him, who saved me from sin.
    He will not let your foot slip, and He who watches will not sleep.
    Our Lord watches over you, and your life He will keep.
    I will lift my eyes to my Lord Most High.
    My help comes from Him, who saved me from sin.
    I give thanks to Him.

    I will lift my eyes to my God in heav’n.
    I look to the Lord. My sins, He’s forgiv’n.
    Because of His great love for us, He made us alive with Christ.
    Through the kindness of our Savior, He gave us new life.
    I will lift my eyes to my God in heav’n.
    I look to the Lord. My sins, He’s forgiv’n;
    My home, now in heav’n.

    Praise be to the Lord, who is on our side.
    Our help found in Him. He gives peace within.
    Those who trust will ne’er be shaken. God will supply all we need.
    Our Lord has done great things for us. He’s our friend, indeed!
    Praise be to the Lord, who is on our side.
    Our help found in Him. He gives peace within.
    I can count on Him.
