The Outlook may not Always be Easy, but the Uplook is Great

The Outlook may not Always be Easy, but the Uplook is Great

You can’t just be God’s fair-weather friend. If you are only going to be willing to believe and trust the Lord as long as everything goes all right, you won’t be believing or trusting very much, because “many are the afflictions of the righteous” (Psalm 34:19).

The good news is that when you hit bottom, that’s when you can start on your way up–if you look to the Lord and let Him help you! When things look darkest, don’t look down, look up! Start praising the Lord, and you will often praise your way right out of the pit into which the Devil is trying to cast you! When the Devil tempts you to get down and discouraged, fight! Don’t even listen to him, much less surrender!

It all depends on which way you point your antenna. If you’re downhearted and cast down, it’s because you’ve got your antenna pointed down toward Hell instead of up toward Heaven. Doubt, fear, discouragement, and complaining kill, but faith, trust, courage, and praising the Lord make alive. Look to Jesus and live!

Just open up your heart and let the sunshine in! When you look up, the sky is the limit. Up there the sun is always shining!
