The Lord asks us to not focus on ourselves but to look towards Him in heaven. He is the bearer of eternal life. There is nothing on earth that will ever fully satisfy our soul. We will always be wanting more. Nothing will quench our thirst. Jesus is the only one that has power to fill our every need. There is nothing lacking when we have found Jesus in our lives. When we believe that He is Lord, His joy will pierce our hearts. Nothing will ever replace the love we feel for Jesus. His joy is incomparable. Once you feel His warm embrace you will know that He is the bearer of true happiness. Jesus is the way to salvation. Lift up your eyes and see His glory. It is more glorious than anything the world can offer us. The Lord told Abram, “Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art”. The Lord offers us eternal life if we might believe in Him. We might have come a long ways in life but nothing will match the joy you will feel when you accept Jesus in your heart. A new chapter will start in your life. We will become a new person before God. We might have fallen short but all that is forgiven. All our sins are washed away. The Lord’s mercy is for all.
Arise and walk in the ways of the Lord. Live to be like Him. Walk in the Spirit that you may hear His voice. Seek His counsel and listen whenever He speaks. Read the Bible daily. Let the words dig deep into your soul. God’s word is a light that overcomes all darkness. Abram was instructed by the Lord to “Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.” We will know how to live if Jesus is in our hearts. Jesus is our only hope. I feel safe in His arms. I sing to Him for He stole my heart. There is solid ground in Jesus. Our Lord is our rock. There is a firm foundation upon which He stands. If we believe in Jesus and follow in His ways we will be eternally blessed. All those that love God are blessed beyond measure. It is life changing to know Him. Oh lord, you stole my heart. I run to You for You light up my life. You keep me safe and never let me go. Your love has taken hold of me and I am changed forevermore. Take my life and my heart. Lead me by the hand. You are everything to me. There is nothing like your love. I am amazed by the joy I feel in my heart. I lift up my hands high to praise your Holy Name. I love You.
Genesis 13:14-17 (KJV)
14 And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:
15 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
16 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.
17 Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.
