ALL EYES ON JESUS

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2

 

The reason why many believers are not getting the help they need is because they are looking in the wrong place. Their expectation is wrongly focused. They look up to man when they should be looking up to God. The verses after our opening scripture show us reasons why we should look up to God for help. “He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore. (Vs 3-8). No man can do all these for you. So why will you look up to man and forget God? Instead of chasing after God, you are chasing after men who will always disappoint.

Jeremiah 17:5-8 says “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.” This shows us the difference between trusting in men and trusting in God.

Beloved, make up your mind who to look up to. You can’t claim to be looking up to God when you are looking up to men. You can’t look at two different things at the same time. Your eyes were made to focus on a particular thing at the same time. You have looked at men for a long time. It is time to look away from them and look up to God in faith and with all conviction that He will help you. When you do that, the joy of the Lord will flood your heart and divine help will come speedily.

PRAISE REPORT
Evil summon overturned
In 2016, I was summoned before a deity. I came to the altar in church and summoned them back. I got the blood of Jesus and applied all over my body. To the glory of God, the time they gave me came and passed and nothing happened to me. Praise God.
