Eyes on Me

Hebrews 11:26 (ESV)

“He (Moses) considered abuse suffered for the Messiah to be greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking ahead to the reward.”

Moses was a man of faith. By faith Moses left Egypt. I like the way Scripture presents his faith, “Moses persevered as though he saw him who is invisible.” (v. 11:27b) It can be said, Moses lived as though he saw the reward of his faith. Moses believed he would get his reward. I wonder about my faith. Do I live as though I see the reward of my faith? Someone watching me may know the answer; perhaps you will tell me some day. It seems to me that if I can simply keep my eyes on God my faith will follow. I think of God and hear the elementary school teacher, “One, two, three! Eyes on me!” With my eyes on God, it may be then that my faith will lead me toward my reward. Will your faith be rewarded, too? I do believe our faith will be rewarded.      

“Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.” Saint Augustine
