A Japanese proverb says, “We can never see the sun rise by looking into the west.”
The question, Princess Warrior, is what are you looking at? Keep your eyes fixed on the King! “For you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings…” (Malachi 4:2)
Are you looking in the right direction? Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus! “Let your eyes look directly ahead and let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you.” (Proverbs 4:25) “… Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of faith…” (Hebrews 12:1-2) “Run in such a way that you may win… run in such a way, as not without aim…” Don’t allow the enemy to disqualify you! (I Corinthians 9:24-27)
He has given you the Survivor’s Manual and the Play Book! His Word is your lamp to your feet and light to your path. Take one step at a time. He will not let you slip. (Psalm 119:105, 66:8-9; Joshua 1:7)
Follow the LORD of Hosts! Follow the Son!
