New Blog: Not Down, But Up!

Home > Featured, Pastor's Blog > New Blog: Not Down, But Up!


The hardest thing to do is lookup when things are weighing you down. This is the posture the enemy wants you to be in, because looking down limits what you can see. Also, it causes you to feel hopeless in your situation. When you take this posture you are emulating how you feel on the inside, and the enemy thinks he has you. I want to draw your attention to Psalm 121, and it states in verses one and two ; “I will lift up my eyes to the hills – from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” The psalmist is letting you know the posture you should take when life is weighing you down. The psalmist is telling you there is help, but to receive it you have to lookup. I believe the psalmist is letting you know what worked for him, will also work for you. When you look up to the hills, you realize they were created by the Lord. This is the same Lord that created you and watches over you, and is waiting for you to ask for His help. Looking up reminds you that you are not alone, the Lord is your help, and is the only one who can lighten your load.

It’s time for you to change your posture, you have been looking down long enough. You  are thinking how can I lookup, with the things I’ve done wrong in my life? You are no different than anybody, all of us have fallen short. However, it’s the Lord’s grace and mercy that allows us to change our posture. I challenge you to read Psalm 121, and change your posture. Once you do,  you will realize not down – but up!
