When your faith is under attack, focus your thinking on Jesus and feed your soul on the intake, meditation and appropriation of His Word and let His Spirit strengthen you. When your faith is under fire, feed the fire of your faith!Focus on Jesus. Consider “Fuel”‘ for the fire of your faith… 

Jesus Is AFFECTIONATE– “I long for you with the AFFECTION of Christ Jesus” – {Phil 1:8};

Jesus is BETTER – ” Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantor of a BETTER covenant. ” – {Heb 7:22}

Jesus Is COMPASSIONATE – ” – When He saw the crowds, He had COMPASSION on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.”-{Matt 9:36}

Jesus Is DELIVERER – “Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death He might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil and DELIVER all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.”- {Heb 2:14-15}

Jesus Is ENOUGH -“My Grace Is Sufficient {the word means-ENOUGH} for you”- {12 Cor 12:7-10}

Jesus Is FAITHFUL – “And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called FAITHFUL and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.””-{Rev 19 2:11-17}

“Let us FIX our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. CONSIDER HIM who endured such hostility from sinners, SO THAT YOU WILL NOT GROW WEARY AND LOSE HEART…… …”-{Heb 12:2-3}

FOCUS on Him, CONSIDER Him. Not a quick look but a contemplation of Him. Contemplate His Person, HIS Work, promises, power. Contemplate HIS TRUTH and APPLY His Promises!

JESUS IS AFFECTIONATE- Ask him to remind you how He has shown His affection to you. Who has He shown His affection to in the Scriptures? Read and Look.. JESUS IS BETTER…The word “BETTER” is used 13 times in Hebrews… Read and underline the word “BETTER “and note What JESUS is BETTER than. How does this APPLY to YOU? JESUS IS COMPASSIONATE. Matthew 9 says He looked and saw the people and made a comparison that they were like sheep, harassed…and He FELT Compassion…We see His heart to the lost. He was not cold hearted, indifferent or callous but He felt compassion and it lead to an action… what did He tell the disciples to Do…? He told them to …Pray! For in intercession for others they developed His heart for the lost! Intercession and intimacy go hand in hand and compassion is developed and displayed!

Jesus DELIVERS. Last night I had a call from a young person regarding the shortness of life and death and what happens afterwards. JESUS DESTROYED the work of the devil and DELIVERS from the fear of death! “so that by His death He might destroy him who holds the power of death, that is, the devil, and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death,”- {Heb 2:14-15} Whatever we face, we will always have Sufficient Grace, ENOUGH GRACE, Enough Favor and Power, for whatever we face! Jesus never runs short of His Grace! Jesus is to be the ONE WE are to FIX our eyes upon…Jesus… Looking away from all else is what it means, Look away to Jesus… Jesus is the pioneer of our faith who endured the cross… Jesus arose from the dead, Conqueror… and Jesus sits EXALTED, Sovereign KING…”all power and authority has been given unto Him in Heaven and on earth….”{Matt 28:19-20. He is FAITHFUL AND KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS… in every situation, HE REIGNS and RULES!
SO … let us FIX our eyes upon JESUS, our Faithful High Priest who ever lives to Intercede from the position of ultimate authority, affection, compassion who is “better” and who loves you dearly…And He alone Is the ONE Who enables us to counteract the temptation to “grow weary and lose heart.”

When you find your faith is under attack, FOCUS on JESUS and HIS WORD and His Spirit will feed your faith…


“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the Word of Christ.”- {Rom 10:17.}

I awoke this morning and needed to feed my faith as I was looking at the circumstances, and not Him. So I “spoke” to myself and wrote down the above thoughts and I hope these encourage you to FOCUS ON JESUS, Who began a good work in you who will complete it. He saved you, He sustains you, He will finish the work He began “IN You” and bring you safely Home. {Read Phil 1:6.}He hears your prayers… He is able to answer and will answer according to His glory, His will being done in the matter… so pray on …Looking away to Jesus your GREAT HIGH PRIEST Who EMPATHIZES with you {Heb 4:15-16}

“Who Am I focusing on?”

If not Jesus, you and I will both grow weary and lose heart… But the good news is we can FIX OUR EYES OF FAITH ON JESUS…for HE IS …FAITHFUL and TRUE! TRUE TO HIMSELF…TRUE TO HIS PROMISES…TRUE TO…YOU…LOOK AWAY TO JESUS AND CELEBRATE… JESUS!

When Your faith is under fire focus on Jesus!


“O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s a light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conquerors we are!’-

His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!- {Helen Lemmel}


JESUS is the difference! Jesus,
“Jesus, Jesus
There’s just something about that name
Master, Savior, Jesus
Like the fragrance after the rain
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
Let all heaven and earth proclaim
Kings and kingdoms shall all pass away
But there’s something about that name.”{Bill Gaither}

“My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

  1. When darkness veils His lovely face,
    I rest on His unchanging grace;
    In every high and stormy gale
    My anchor holds within the veil.
    On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
    All other ground is sinking sand.
  2. His oath, His covenant, and blood
    Support me in the whelming flood;
    When every earthly prop gives way,
    He then is all my Hope and Stay.
    On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
    All other ground is sinking sand.
  3. When He shall come with trumpet sound,
    Oh, may I then in Him be found,
    Clothed in His righteousness alone,
    Faultless to stand before the throne!
    On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
    All other ground is sinking sand.”-{Edward Mote}


When Your faith is under fire focus on Jesus and feed your faith on His Word!
