Even through the numerous trials we have to go through, we can survive them all if we focus on Jesus. If we chose to keep our eyes on God and not the situation we are facing, God will take us through the problems.

When we look to the Lord, we exercise an act of faith that can mean the difference between victory and defeat in our personal lives.

We have a choice. We can be obsessed with our problems, constantly keeping them on our mind or we can concentrate on the Lord Jesus Christ, who can help us with our problems.

If we dwell on our circumstances it generates stress, anxiety, anger and fear. Then we are drained spiritually, and our faith is weak. But choosing to fix our mind on Christ builds our faith and provides peace. The way to peace is to focus on Jesus.

“Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Trust in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.” Isaiah 26: 3-4

Our focus should be on Jesus and not our problems.
