You’ve been crying out for help a long time now. Praying in your closet, wondering if God hears you. Worshipping Him with tears whilst walking in a fog. It’s time to take your eyes off of your circumstances. Today! Quit wallowing in self pity. Stop moaning about the things you can’t do or have yet to accomplish. Stop resting at the pit stop of doubt. Get away from the devil of damages and distractions. Run fast from the alley of regret. Set your eyes on your Savior friend! Declare this with confidence and imprint it on your heart:
“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.”
Stop looking to your parents to save you. Stop thinking that your paycheck will solve all your issues. Stop waiting on the A-Team to rescue you. Stop putting your trust in man and put your confidence in God! Lift up your head because you have received promises from the Most High. Dry your tears precious child. Look up and see that your help has never left you. Your Lord is present and available in your time of need, always has been-always will be! Just because things aren’t going the way you expected, or how you like, or the way the horoscope said, or how the fortune teller predicted, or the way it went for Tyrone n Dem or Susie-Bell, does NOT mean that God ain’t working it out. Are Gods thoughts and ways not higher than ours? Was Jesus not tempted to bail on the task (like us) but continued His mission anyways (what we MUST do)? He was ridiculed, lied on, talked about, mistreated, persecuted, falseley condemned by His own people, yet in His execution He still finished His work sent by the Father. The trial will make you stronger brother. The betrayal will make you stronger sister. The broken heart will make you stronger prince. The lost job will make you stronger princess. Get your eyes on God, on His handiwork, on His Word, on His promises and off of satans lies. Rise up in victory child of God! The devils goal is to make you lose your focus. He wants your eyes to remain hazy and blurred. He wants you depressed, confused, anxious, and restless. The devil wants you to take your eyes off Jesus and panic like Peter did when he walked across the water. Alas, Jesus reached out and rescued him and He will do the same for you if you waver! Praise God for our Savior! Take your eyes off the temporary situation/fear/worry and focus on eternal things. Set your eyes to the hills EXPECTANTLY.
Be encouraged, Gods got you my friend.
