If I look up, I can see more than what is just down here. My future is not now. My future is way ahead of what I see today or experienced in the past. After the resurrection of Martha’s brother (Lazarus). “Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you believe [in Me], you will see the glory of God [the expression of His excellence]?”” (JOHN 11:40 AMP).
I believe you will soon see God’s Goodness at your doorstep if you believe. Move ahead from your present circumstances. The future is brighter if you have faith that things will be better. “(as it is written [in Scripture], “I HAVE MADE YOU A FATHER OF MANY NATIONS ”) in the sight of Him in whom he believed, that is, God who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist.”
(ROMANS 4:17 AMP).
Which bad situation do you find yourself in? How hopeless is the situation? Do you believe that Jesus can turn things around for your good. “For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may endure for a night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.” (PSALMS 30:5 AMP).
You cannot remain in your muddy situation otherwise you will be stuck forever. Encourage yourself in God’s Word and pray for a push from God. Look up; don’t look down. Receive God’s Abundant Grace. You will definitely go higher if you trust God. Don’t feel rejected or abandoned. God loves you and He is on your side. There is a wide space for you to tap into, so as to be able to receive your blessings, if you don’t give up. “I will lift up my eyes to the hills [of Jerusalem]— From where shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.” (PSALMS 121:1-2 AMP).
