When we focus on Jesus, on what He accomplished for us with His death and resurrection, and on the promises of God that are now available to us as a result, then the obstacles in our lives will shrink to insignificance. Jesus is the one who started our faith. And He's the one who will finish it. Keep your eyes on Jesus. Trust God. Focus in on what God promises in the Bible. The more you do that, the less intimidating the obstacles that rise up in your life will be. If you keep at it, before long you will find yourself consistently overcoming things that overwhelm others.
Let us look to 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 seated at the right hand of the throne of God.— Hebrews 12:2 (MEV)
