As we look up to our Lord, He helps us look in three directions, taking us to a place of trust and hope in Him. We look back, remember what God has already helped us through, and how He moved in our lives in greater ways than expected. We see how we have grown in the Lord and the freedom He brought in various areas of our lives. 

We look within. The spirit of Christ can bring light to areas that need healing. We humbly face ourselves, confront ourselves in order to conquer, and walk in freedom. He helps us examine what doesn’t match our divine identity. We increase in the knowledge of who we are in Christ, and who Christ is in us: the hope of glory.  

We look forward. What God has prepared for us is so much greater than what we could ask or think! We are being renewed inwardly day-by-day and rejoice in the glory that will manifest in our future. Our paths are shining brighter and brighter. Tempted to look down and feel hopeless, we look up, from glory to glory! 

Ephesians 2:10 “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”

When we are tempted to look down and feel hopeless, let us look up. Click To Tweet
