All Eyes On Jesus

In the Old Testament, the people of God, suffering from the results of a sinful and broken world are experience the anxieties we have come to aware of in this season. 

Suffering from the bite of the serpents, much as the enemy has always been portrayed, Moses gives us a prophetic image of Jesus. “So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, they lived.” (Num. 21:9). Jesus being represented by the serpent on the pole, is our place of salvation. He took sin upon him, became sin for us, paid the full price and now all we need to do is acknowledge Him.

The simplicity of this miracle is what is so astounding. All the people had to do, was look at the serpent on the pole, and they were immediately healed. So the saving work of Jesus is for us, so simple, yet so powerful. There will always be times of trials and tribulations going through different seasons in your life. When we experience emotions of fear, stress, and anxiety, the enemy uses the opportunity to enter our hearts. (Acts 5:3) Guard your heart and be patient. God’s plan, and purpose for your life is good and prosperous. (Jer. 29:11)

If the season hurts, be patient (Num. 21:4) with God, and trust that as winter will pass this season will too. We should be aware that the serpent (enemy) wants to destroy our hope and faith in God, but that serpent has been overcome by the work of Jesus on the cross.
