Fix Your Thoughts

Are you looking at God through something other than God? The Israelites had a hard time keeping their focus on God because they were looking through Moses. Because they didn’t focus on God, they spent 40 years wandering in the wilderness and only their children and descendants were allowed to go into the promised land.

focusHebrews 3:1 states, “fix your thoughts on Jesus.” The word translated as “fix” means much more than just “looking” at Jesus. How many times in a day do we look at a thing and not actually see it? This word means to perceive, to note. Instead of just looking at a thing, it means to put your whole mind toward it, to try to understand it. It is the same word that Jesus uses in Luke 12:24. He wanted us to understand the lesson we can learn from the ravens. We, as believers, have an invitation from God to God. We cannot afford to just glance at the invitation; we must put our whole mind toward it.
