Set your eyes on Jesus
Daniel 9:3 Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes.
This is key in a relationship with God. You must set your gaze upon the Lord. Once we see Him, the only outcome is worship and honor. What love and grace is found in His eyes. Looking unto Jesus, the author and completer of our faith.
