Of course, it is only wise to look for strength in the strong and what better strength than the Lion of the Tribe of Judah Himself (whoop!) But a lot of us ‘lift up our eyes to the hills’ more by mouth than by heart.
We’re quick to worry and panic when things don’t go as they ought to (this is so me 🙈🙈) and when help eventually comes we’re even quicker to attach it to some reason or coincidence instead of the One our help truly comes from. So even when we say we are looking up to the hills, we never really take our eyes off from the earth.
In doing this, we miss out on the glory of looking up to the hills. We hinder growth in our lives. The thing is, we grow in the direction we constantly face like plants for instance. And so it’s hard for upwards growth to occur if we are constantly looking down.
So hey, look up. Look to the hills. Look to God. Help will come and when it does come, be quick to acknowledge that it is indeed God. If I’ve learnt anything, it’s that we have no power of our own. I’m picking up on my look up game today, no more by mouth😄. You should too. ,
