Read: 2 Corinthians 4:7-18
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me, you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
The story is told of a man who was busy in his study and did not want to be disturbed by his little son. So, he gave the lad a puzzle to fix the different cities of the world on a map. “This should keep him busy for a long time while I concentrate on my work, the man said to himself”. But to his surprise, the little boy emerged five minutes later, with all the cities in place on the map. Amazed, he asked his son how he managed to achieve this in so short a time. The little boy smiled and said “dad, there was a picture of a man at the centre of the back of the map and I figured that if I could get the man to the centre, at the back, all the cities would fall into place in front of the map”. Rather than focusing on getting the different cities in place, he focused on putting the man at the centre.
The lyrics of a beautiful song. By Minister Eben, goes this way: “At the centre of it all, It’s You that I see, It’s You that I see. There is power in Your name. Miracles happen in Your name”.
Life will always happen. But Jesus Christ, the One who is bigger than the biggest, greater than the greatest and stronger than the strongest, is the only constant in life. He is the only One who can make the difference that you seek in life. He told His disciplesthat they would keep facing trials as long as they were on earth, but they were not to be discouraged, because He had won the victory for them. Take your eyes of the storms of life and look to the Man at the centre. When you put Jesus Christ at the centre of your life, everything else will fall into place.
Have you asked Him to come into the centre of your heart and life? Here’s a prayer you can say now:
“Dear Lord, I am a sinner in need of grace Thank You Jesus for dying to set me free from sin. Please forgive me for all my sins and come into my heart. Be my Lord and Saviour. Fill me with Your Spirit and enable me to live for You. In Jesus name, Amen.
