Look Unto Jesus (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 is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:2 (KJV)

Our natural default position is to look to ourselves or other people when it comes to seeking wisdom and guidance. And while it is certainly okay to ask others for advice, what the Word of God is telling us is that we are to look unto Jesus—the author and finisher of our faith. We are to look unto Jesus as our example; we are to look unto Jesus for provision; we are to look unto Jesus for healing; we are to look unto Jesus for anything and everything we could ever need!

How wonderful that our Lord is seated at the right hand of God. The reason He is seated is because He has Himself said: “It is finished!” (John 19:30) Friend, this means that you can know with certainty that contained within the finished works of Jesus Christ is everything that you could ever need. He has made it available by His grace, and now your role is to take hold of it by faith. Today, decide that you will live in the peace of knowing that God has you in the palm of His hand, and that in due season, you will see everything that the grace of God has made available to you come to pass. Look unto Jesus!
