Look Up!

LUKE 21:25,26,28 NKJ 25 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 “men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of heaven will be shaken. 28 “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
Unprecedented troubles seem to be sweeping the earth.
What should we do when we see these things happening?
Jesus said we should “look up and lift up our heads!” That is, we should not be discouraged or disheartened by all the troubles on earth, as if we have no hope. Instead we are to continue in faith, knowing that our Lord will always take care of us, and that our final redemption is drawing nearer.
We must remember that God is truly our Source and that He has promised to never forsake us, but to always provide for us.
As we await the return of our Lord, we should actively continue to be a witness of God’s goodness by our life and testimony. Our refusing to submit to fear and worry, but instead giving thanks and praise to God, will be a witness to those around us.
