What are you looking at? What are the most important muscles that you use when playing sports? The eye muscles. Imagine playing your sport with your eyes closed. It would be nearly impossible. For example, as a goalie in lacrosse, the goalie must keep his/her eye on the ball at all times. If they lose sight of the ball, more often than not it will end up in the back of the net. In baseball or softball if you do not see the ball thrown by the pitcher when you are hitting, you may end up striking out. We are told in the Bible that we are to, “look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.” In John chapter 5 we see Jesus telling the Jews where He is looking, “the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.” In Matthew chapter 14 we see that when Peter had his eyes fixed on Jesus that he was able to walk on water. But when he took his eyes of Jesus, he began to sink. In sport, if you lose sight of the ball quickly try to regain it. You may still be able to make the save, hit the ball or catch the ball. The same is true in our walk with the Lord. If you lose sight of Jesus, quickly try to regain it. When Peter lost sight of Jesus and began to sink, he cried out the Jesus saying, Lord, save me!” I am sure that when he said, “Lord, save me!” he was looking directly at Jesus. What did Jesus do? “And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him…” Your vision is not only important is sports but it is extremely important in your walk with the Lord. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus.
