Regrann from @biblical_counseling
- The moment we look at ourselves, we will fail - we are focusing on the wrong thing. In ourselves there is only brokenness, there is only pain and there is only sin. But Christ!! •••But Christ is the one who is perfect, and as we look to Him, follow Him, experience Him and obey Him, we find rest and we find healing. 🙏🏼•••
Remember the story of Peter walking on the water? Why was he able to walk on the #water
? He did so as long as he was keeping his #eyes
on Jesus! And when did he start sinking because of the #waves
(which represent the troubles of this world) ? He was sinking the moment he took his eyes off of Jesus and started looking at his own strength, starting to think humanly about the impossible situation that was going on - him walking on water. •••This is a lesson - the moment we take our eyes off Jesus and start looking around our own situation and our own efforts, we start sinking - and there is no rest. Christ is our rest.
