LIFT UP YOUR “FAITH EYES”
Genesis 13 vs
14.¶And the LORD said unto Abram, after Lot was separated from him, “LIFT UP now thine EYES, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: -|KJV|
Worrying about yesterday is a liability; focusing only on today brings obscurity; but imagining, planning and preparing for the future is a great asset for any posterity. Abraham like any ordinary man had a past, today and a future. However, his current circumstance was trying to tie him down in life. God had promised him a child, through him great nations would emerge (Gen 12:2,3). But it seemed to have delayed and he had nothing to show in the physical except his chief servant Eliezer (Gen 15:2).
The presence of Eliezer had been so intense in Abraham’s mind to the extent that he even included him in the divine plan but God intercepted him and said “this shall not be your heir” (Gen 15:3,4). Cherished one, a certain circumstance may have stayed with you for so long that it’s almost trying to rob you of greatness in the future. Listen up, today, God is telling you “No! that situation ( sickness, poverty, death, failure, debt etc) or challenge shall NOT be your heir”. That’s is not your lot. Please, accept, believe and live it. Hallelujah!
Since God is a master communicator, He told Abraham to “go look at the stars and count them”. Abraham lifted his eyes and saw the stars but couldn’t count them. And God said to him so shall his descendants be (Gen 15:5). Here, God was training him in the school of faith; that’s where you use your faith eyes above your optical eyes. Friend, lift up your eyes from the problem and look to the solution God has offered in the word through Jesus. And you will know that the elevation of God can never be compared to any challenge.
Beloved, from where you are now, lift up your faith eyes by looking into the word. Stretch your faith. Believe the solution you see in it concerning your situation. Don’t confine yourself with only the physical eyes or mind, it’s too limited to comprehend the systems of God. Your future is brighter, don’t allow situations to make you give up on God and His word. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
In the Name of Jesus, I refuse to live in my past. I refuse to allow the challenges of today weigh me down. I choose to see with the eyes of faith. Oh glory! I see my greatness as God sees it. My future is so bright and fulfilling. I have come too far to give up in life. I trust the faithfulness of God as He honours His word. Hallelujah!
Enjoy A Blissful Friday in Greatness !
