Look Up…Our God is Able! Find Your Peace…Live Life to the Fullest!
Jimmy Evans: “The ten spies went into the promised land and compared themselves to the giants and said, ‘We are like insects.’
“Joshua and Caleb went into the promised land…came out and said, ‘They will be our prey because our God is able.’ They compared the giants to God! Remember, Jesus said, ‘When you see these things begin to happen…look up!’ Don’t look around…don’t sit in front of the news for hours on end listening to bad news because you will get depressed.”
Which outlook is yours? We are faced with giants daily. Not just in the big world out there, but personally. No sense in me naming the giants. You know what yours are.
You will never be without giants. Stop waiting until you are to find peace…to live! Life is always going to have a mixture of sweetness and challenge. Sometimes the challenges are excruciatingly painful and…long.
But…which outlook is yours?
I get off the track and look at the giants. You likely do, as well. But don’t excuse yourself. Go to your knees again and again. Be intentional about finding your peace…which then enables you to live life to the fullest.
Look to God.
Regain your peace.
No matter the size of your giants…like Joshua and Caleb, remember…look up!
Our God is able!
Isaiah 55:6-9 (NLT) 6 Seek the LORD while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. 7 Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the LORD that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously. 8 “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. 9 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.
Ephesians 3:14-21 (ESV) 14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
