Let God heal the innermost parts of your heart as you keep your eyes on Him.
Welcome to celebrating God's grace, a Women
World Leaders podcast. I'm your host, Janet Berrong. Thank you for joining me today as we celebrate God's grace in our lives, in this ministry, and in the world. It's an honor for me to be back with you today sharing health, beauty, and Jesus. I want to talk about heart healing as we keep our eyes on Jesus. Recently, I've been doing some heart healing to be the best version of myself. While doing this, it requires me to keep my eyes on Jesus to be intentional and focused allowing him to heal my inner parts of my heart. The Bible says in Proverbs 4:23, "Above all else, guard your heart for everything you do flows from it." Scientists have recently discovered some interesting facts about your physical heart. For example, they now believe that the heart has its own way of thinking and feeling. They have also found that the thoughts and feelings of your physical heart exert tremendous and measurable control over how you interpret life's experiences. In other words, they have discovered what you believe in your heart determines the course of your life. Wounded hearts cause blind spots that keep people from walking in the fullness of who God created them to be. You can help people connect with Jesus, receiving healing from emotional pain and trauma and make space for God to uncover the lies that keep them from living from what the whole heart that he paid for on the cross. Psalm 76:23 reads, "My flesh and my heart may fail. But God is my strength of my heart and my portion forever." What does it mean to keep your eyes on Jesus, we surely know that the world is filled with so many temptations. Oftentimes, these appear to be brilliant enough trying to lure us to keep our focus on them. But as Christians, our loyalty must belong to Jesus alone. As what the Bible has taught us, we have a jealous God. And this we have to give him only our attention. Also, as we are traveling on the road of uncertainties, and too many distractions, keeping our eyes on Jesus would safely lead us to our right destination. Otherwise, we'd be lost wandering in the wilderness. fixing your eyes on Jesus is not a form of denial or abstract belief. Keeping your eyes on Jesus doesn't require us ignoring the problem, or pretending it does not exist. Just the opposite. leaning on God empowers us right within the battle. What is distracting you today from keeping your eyes fixed on Jesus? Can you identify what it is this distracting you call it out and go to battle against the lie. But when you are tempted to look down at the storm around you, look up. Keep your eyes and heart focused on Jesus, the author and perfecter of your faith, who set the joy before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12, one through two, friend, there's joy coming. Don't focus on the storm. Keep your eyes on Jesus. He is there in the storm. Matthew 14:25 through 31 reads, shortly before dawn, Jesus went out to them walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake. They were terrified. It's a ghost they said and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them, Take courage. It is I don't be afraid, Lord, if it's up to replied, tell me to come to you on the water. Come, he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came towards Jesus. But when he saw the winds, he was afraid and began to sink cried out, Lord, save me. Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. You have little faith. He said, Why did you doubt? Lord, thank you for your saving grace. Thank you for loving us so much that you gave your only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have ever lasting life.
I pray right now for anyone needing a heart healing today that you will meet them where they are. Speak to them now Lord, give them ears. to hear and eyes to see what you are revealing. Let no other voice speak to them but you Lord Jesus, and you alone. Help them to keep their eyes on you and receive your healing. In the name of Jesus. Amen. Be blessed
