The Key to Walking the Tightrope

by Pastor Ken

My mouth will tell about your righteousness, and of your salvation all day, though I don’t know its full measure.

Psalm 71:15

A famous tightrope walker explained to someone how it was he could perform so easily. The secret, he said, is to keep his eyes fixed on where he is going. Where his eyes go his body follows. So if he were to look down, he would fall.

This same principle will work your life now. Don’t look down, living in self-pity, and complaining that life is not fair. Keep your eyes on where you are going—the higher level Jesus wants you to be. Think of what you want to accomplish with all powerful God on your side. Tell how He did great wonders for your salvation. Say how you will reach far greater dreams with God. Never focus on where you are now; instead, focus on your life time goals as if you already reached those. And claim every promise and blessing of God in the Bible.

I recommend Jesus’ way highly to you. That is to get your eyes off your problems and onto Jesus who can do everything for you.

Pray: Father, when I’m surrounded difficult situations, help me to enjoy the full potential You placed within me by fixing my eyes on Jesus. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
