Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near. (Luke 21:28 NKJV)
Some people always look down: other always look around. But God didn’t call us to look down, around, or even back. He called us to look up.
When God told Noah to build the ark, He instructed Noah to make only one long window—right near the top, because the only place he wanted Noah to look was upward. If Noah had looked outward, he would have only seen the endless rain, the floating debris, and the people screaming for help.
The secret for our strength today is to look up. Make a decision right now to look up to our heavenly Father, Who is supernaturally supplying all our needs.
One summer our ministry went through a terrible financial crisis, when thousands of dollars and checks had been stolen at the post office. As a result, we could not pay our bills. The circumstances seemed overwhelming. But when I began to look up, my redemption came. For God truly gave us a miracle and supplied all our needs within in 30 days.
Dear Heavenly Father,
We pray that new faith would rise up in our hearts. We will look up, life our heads, and see Your plan of deliverance. We thank You, Father, for you quick answer to prayer, as You hasten to perform Your Word.
In Jesus’s Name,
