We all go through times when we feel stuck and powerless. In John 10.7, Jesus says He is the gate – the door. I think we go through this feeling of being stuck because we are not looking at the door but at the wall.
The eye is the door of the soul so whatever feeling we have inside, we need to carefully examine what we are looking at. Hebrew 12 suggest that we keep our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.
Going through life is like flying a plane. Winds will blow you everywhere. You need something that stays at the same place and remain the same as a reference or else you will be lost and confused. Jesus is the same and his love is eternal. Keep your eyes on him before life’s circumstances blow you everywhere and confuse and discourage you.
