He says that you were…
you were created by God to be part of a family of God
you were created by God to share in a Divine Purpose
you weren’t created to be considered the hero so let yourself off the hook
Fixing your eyes on broken and failed systems and people will not give you the strength you need to walk through the suffering or the success of this or the next season…I’m challengin you to fix your eyes on Jesus in the midst of the suffering and the success. on the summit of the mountain or in the valley you need to fix your eyes on Jesus who is the ONE who can fix your eyesight.
What you fix your mind on will determine how you fix your problems.
