At one point, David faced challenges on every side. Attacks came from enemies, friends and family.
He learned to shift his focus from his dilemma to his Deliverer; from his panic to his Peace; from his concerns to his Comforter.
David asked God to change his perspective in order to see the blessing and protection that comes from above.
“But my eyes are toward you, O God, my Lord; in you I seek refuge; leave me not defenseless!” (Ps 141:8)
In 2006, Bruce Springsteen recorded, “Eyes On The Prize”. The boss sang,
“Now, only thing I did was wrong,
Stayin’ in the wilderness too long.
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on.
Hold on, keep your eyes on the prize!. Hold on, hold on”
Brother, in challenging times, let’s keep our eyes toward Him. He is our Prize. And, keep holding on!
