Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

 I was in my car on the way from home and for this trip, I decided to switch off the mobile network and just listen to music. Halfway through these questions came and I asked How do I know You're with me like You said in Your Word that You are, I need more than just believing in Your Word because, in times like this, I need to experience You.

In a few minutes, I switched off the CD player and I started to sing this song Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, an old hymn that I rarely sing and listen to. I sang repetitively till I reach home and I was very tired to even sing actually but I managed to do that the whole way through. Amazing that I had the strength as I was kind of pressed down my chest.

Two days later while I was in church the worship leader led this song and then God spoke that all we need to do is to look at Jesus and your problems will become shadows in the light of Jesus.  He is greater and the One who is in us is greater than the one who is in the world - 1 John 4:4.

We need to keep experiencing God and continue to study His Word to remain confident in Who we believe in and when times of turmoil and trouble comes, we can tell the mountains the God that we serve is by our side and we have nothing to fear.

May you be encouraged by this song and whatever circumstances you're going through right now, look to Jesus Your help, Your redeemer, and Friend. He will answer.
