Don't look at your feet, look forward!

  Did you learn to ride a bike? Beginners always look at where their feet are and forget to look forward. We only focus on a very narrow field of vision when we look at the ground. It is difficult to balance, and easy to fall. On the contrary, when we focus on the goal ahead, we will be able to move forward smoothly!


  When we are doing something, it is easy to magnify all the negative things we encounter. In my past working experience, I worked for an unjust company, so much office politics, and even extreme paganism culture. I was in so much pain that I got off work in tears a lot of the time. I ask God every day during my devotion: "Can I leave the company?" But God always told me to stay...


  In 2 Corinthians 4:8-9, do we often stop at the first sentence “We are hard-pressed on every side…perplexed…persecuted…struck down” and forget the next sentence "... yet not crushed…but not in despair…but not forsaken…but not destroyed. " These are the promises God gave us in our difficult times. God hope we can fully rely on Him in all things and focus on His final destiny!


  After a year of tough struggling, God finally let me leave that company. At the farewell lunch, I found that I had an in-depth conversation with each of my colleagues, and even shared the gospel to them and led them to believe in Jesus! I thank God for allowing me to glorify Him even in that difficult time. Instead of focusing only on negative things, I focus on how to show God’s love in the company and fulfill the mission God has given me!


  "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal."

(2 Corinthians 4:17-18)


  There is no denying that the things we would face can be sad and disappointing. But when we look farther, see everything through God's eyes, and fully believe that God's destiny for you will one day be fulfilled, we can see things from a new perspective, and the bike we ride can go further steadily!
