Bible Ballistics: BBs #538 When I’m Down, I Look UP!!!
It’s Friday morning and I would just like to share a few passages from God’s Word to lift our eyes upward. It’s so easy to start looking around at the “lions” instead of looking up to the “Lord”; but let’s take a few moments to refocus upward right now!
“And when these things begin to come to pass,
then look up,
and lift up your heads;
for your redemption
draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28
Our Lord is a soon-coming King, and we who belong to Him always have hope IN Him, for He is ever our refuge.
“The name of the LORD
is a strong tower:
the righteous runneth into it,
and is safe.” Proverbs 18:10
I pray that whatever you may be facing today, you will look up and run into God’s strong tower. Surround yourself with uplifting praise music, spend time in God’s Word, make time to get alone with God in prayer—He’s ever there to hear our hearts cry! We can hold on to HIS strong hand—that “Nail Pierced Hand” –that bled for our redemption! Praise His name!!!
“Seeing then that we have a great high priest,
that is passed into the heavens,
Jesus the Son of God,
let us hold fast our profession.
15 For we have not an high priest
which cannot be touched
with the feeling of our infirmities;
but was in all points tempted
like as we are,
yet without sin.
16 Let us therefore come
unto the throne of grace,
that we may obtain mercy,
and find grace to help
in time of need.” Hebrews 4:14-16
We have a loving Lord who calls us to come to Him; and He is always ready to direct our steps and guide us to “find grace to help in time of need”! Amen!
And one of my favorite reminders of how to walk right before God and the world:
“Trust in the LORD
with all thine heart;
and lean not
unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways
and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise
in thine own eyes:
fear the LORD,
and depart from evil.
8 It shall be health to thy navel,
and marrow to thy bones.” Proverbs 3:5-8
May God bless you with a joyous and delightful day—and maybe even a taste of spring!
Amen and Amen!
