Look Up

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.” -Thomas Moore

One day Peter and John approached a lame beggar at the temple gate.  The lame man asked Peter and John for money while still hanging his head and looking down, but Peter told him, “Look at us.”  Peter explained that they didn't have money, but they did have something invaluable.  He declared in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk” (Acts 3:6).  The man got up and walked.  Likewise, life happens to us all, and consequently we sometimes are left with lingering inhibitions, emotional handicaps, or spiritual hang-ups.  We need healing from God, Jehovah Rophi, the only One Who can.  We mustn't hang our heads any longer; the first step in allowing God to heal us is looking up.

“But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head (Psalm 3:3, ESV).
