"I see YOU, Jesus"

Dara Joy is such an anointed worship leader. This song by her is so amazing and reminds us that the most important person to look to is Jesus. Rather than focusing on whatever else is going on in our lives,we need to look to Him. Only then will our lives be whole and complete. In John 15:5, Jesus says, "apart from me you can do nothing." However, in Him we are empowered fully and equipped to live out His glorious plan for our lives. As long as we stay connected to Him, we will "bear much fruit," as the beginning of that same verse says. So often we get caught up with seeking and striving after worldly success and material things, and let go of the things of God. The truth is, God wants you to be blessed in every area of your life, including money and material possessions, but He doesn't want you to abandon His ways in the quest for them. Proverbs 10:22 (KJV) says, "the blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow to it." Our prosperity should come from the Lord and His blessing on our lives. Matthew 6:33 (also in the King James Version of the Bible) says, "seek ye first the Kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you." It is very important to remember to keep ourselves focused on seeking the things of God unconditionally. Rather than worrying and fretting over how you're going to change your current circumstances, look to Jesus as your Healer, Provider, and the supplier of your every need, because when we put God first and become a doer of the word, as the book of James says to be, blessings will surely abound in your life. Don't look at the sins you may have committed. Look at Jesus. Look at the fact that after repenting of them you were covered by the Blood and completely forgiven - "Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God's right hand (Col 3:1, NLT). Focus on the realities of Heaven that you are forgiven and blessed. Look to Jesus for the provision of all of your needs, and He will take care of you. In Him is all we could ever desire. After all, He came in order for us to "have life, and have it more abundantly (John 10:10, NKJV)."
