Hebrews 12:2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Whenever your eyes and heart are steadfastly focused on The Lord Jesus Christ you are abiding in Him. (John 15:4 “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.) When your eyes and heart are fixed on the past, trials, cares and circumstances of this life you are abiding in them. Your Faith, Victory, and Strength comes from Abiding in The Lord Jesus Christ and His Living Love and Word!
You can never change the past it is impossible! So why dwell and think about the past? The more you dwell on it, the more it comes back to life with all the sorrows. When your eyes and heart are living and abiding in The Lord Jesus Christ. His Life, Love, Joy and Victory is Flowing through You! (John 15:7-8 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.)
The Lord Jesus Christ Loves you unconditionally and He will never forsake or leave you. He wants to share your heart and life with you. When you abide in Him, He can Live through you and guide you to an Abundant Joyful Victory! When you do not abide in Him He can not be a part of your life or guide you! The Lord Jesus Christ will never go against your will. You have to be in agreement with Him. So Abide and Live through Him and He will Live through You!
John 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
Mark 4:19 “and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
John 14:16-17 “And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever; “the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
