Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
In the current economic and political climate, it would be easy to focus on all that is being said in the news and in our communities. However, as a believer, we should consider not what is being said. Rather, we should consider what was said. Jesus said no matter the news, I am to be one who lifts my head.
In other words, I am to be a head lifter. When troubles come, when anxiety rises, when resources become scarce, lift up your head.
Lifting our head is a choice and a challenge. It begins with the choice to look up with our eyes, and then, to lift up our head. The challenge is to keep our head lifted in spite of the matters of confusion around us.
Spiritually, in what position is your head and eyes? Oh, let us be the example setters and become the head-lifters He expects us to be.
