Balance. We all need it in so many ways. It is easy to let life overwhelm us with all the tasks and to do list we have and we find ourselves out of balance. So how do we find balance? I believe the secret to that is observing the life of Jesus. He was the most well-balanced person who ever lived. He lived a very busy life with many responsibilities. He was inundated with requests for food, healing and teaching. He was given the task of being the sacrifice for our sins and for choosing and training those who would carry on after He was gone. In addition, He was challenged on every hand by those who did not believe He was the Son of God. So how did Jesus stay balanced?
1. He knew who He was and why He came. He had a mission, He knew it and He stuck with it. He did not allow anything to keep Him from His mission.
2. He trusted in God. He committed Himself to God in the good times and the bad. When the crowd was for Him He trusted in God. When the mob was against Him He trusted God. He did not allow His life situation to rob Him of His equilibrium.
3. He did not allow interruptions to rob Him of His peace. When He was traveling and people stopped Him, He always took time out knowing that such interruptions were God-ordained.
Don’t forget who you are in Christ. Don’t allow the world, your life circumstances to rob you of your peace in Christ or detract you from your mission in life. Keep your eyes on Jesus and your eyes on the prize.
