Where are you looking?

Be encouraged today, God has a plan for your life.  Do you know what that plan is?  Do you want to know what that plan is? Would you be prepared to let go of your plan and adopt God’s plan?  God has plans to prosper you and not to harm you; plans for a future and a hope! [Jeremiah 29:11-14] Can you see God’s plan for you? What does it look like?  Where you look is what you’ll see.

If you’re in a battle or a struggle or in a storm today, then I want to encourage you to look a little higher!

  • Look a little higher than where you are right now… 
  • Look above the battle…
  • Look above the storm…
  • Look above the circumstances…
  • Look above the problems ….
  • Look above the disappointment…
  • Look above the setbacks…
  • Look above your insecurities…
  • Look above your fear…
  • Look above!

That best selling book of all time has something to say about where to look.  In Isaiah 55:8,9 it says,

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.  As the heavens are higher than earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts are higher than your thoughts.

Amen. Truth is friends if you look down you’ll go down.  We’ve got to look up to hook up with God and his plan.  If you look up you’ll go up.  Whatever you focus on will get bigger!  So focus on where God wants you to be and don’t focus too much on where you are right now. Yes life is full of disappointments. Disappointment is inevitable but discouragement is optional.  One of the devils tactics is to discourage you,  don’t fall for that trap!  I’d rather try and fail than never try and succeed at nothing.  Truth is God is big enough, good enough and wise enough to bring you through what you’re going though.  All he needs is your faith to trust him. Trust him enough to go with his plan for your life and you can’t go wrong. Trust God enough to surrender to his will for your life and then you can have true peace, knowing that Gods got you and he’ll never let you down.  God only ever wants to take you higher so the question is, “Where are you looking?

God bless you heaps
