Lift Up Your Eyes
The Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him, “Lift up your eyes and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward, for all the land that you see I will give to you and to your offspring forever. Genesis 13:14-15
Today, I encourage you to do just as this verse says: lift up your eyes and look from the place where you are. Look in every direction and see that Yahweh has stored up promises in all areas of your life. These aren’t just for you, but for the generations that extend from you! It is easy in our daily lives, whether by routine or challenge, to see only what’s right in front of us. But there is a reason to look up from your habits, circumstances, or possibly disappointments and search out in your spirit what is beyond you today.
That is a place where Yahweh stirs dreams, and where you see who, how, and where you need to serve and sow. Where you are today is not forever, even in its goodness, because you represent fruit of what came before you, and out of you more fruit can follow. Tend to your and your future generations’ fruit by lifting your eyes up and seeing anew. What you see in that land waits for you!
