Fixing My Eyes On Jesus: Daily Moment In His Word is a beautifully written devotional by Anne Graham Lotz. Having read several of her books, I knew this devotional would be a wonderful addition to my morning time.
Each month begins with a quote by Mrs. Charles E. Cowman, from Streams in the Desert. Each day includes a Scripture and a thought or story to help us, the reader, to focus our minds on God for the day.
In her introduction, the author explains:
“Getting up early in the morning to fix my eyes on Jesus through prayer and reading His Word is like setting my spiritual compass each day. No matter what faces me during the day, or how “lost” and confused I may become, no matter how many decisions and choices I’m confronted with, my heart and my thoughts always turn towards Him. And He invariable leads me on the right path.”
Each reading inspires one to delve deeper into God’s Word and grow in both knowledge and understanding of Scripture. Each reading will help to keep the reader on the right path and with eyes and heart fixed on Jesus.
Anne Graham Lotz raises a question within each reading to challenge us to grow in our faith. Some of these questions are:
- “Who are the lambs He [God] wants you to feed?”
- “Are you “halfway” to a vibrant relationship with God?
- “What problem are you facing that’s bigger than you are?”
- “When disaster strikes how do we, as God’s people, respond?
- “Jesus invites us to draw aside and spend time with Him. Why don’t we?”
The book is bound in an imitation leather making this a delightful devotional to give as a gift. The words inside are sure to become a treasure one will hold onto for a lifetime.
