The Only Direction We Should Be Looking
If your life hasn’t yet been restored, it’s because you’re looking in the wrong direction…
“So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything. And he looked up and said, “I see men like trees, walking.” Then He put His hands on his eyes again AND MADE HIM LOOK UP. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly.” (Mark 8:23-25)
How can we receive anything from heaven when our eyes are constantly focused on the world? Looking to heaven means living by faith and believing in the supernatural.
How could this blind man’s sight be restored when he kept looking in the direction of other people?
Not a few “believe” in God but constantly depend on other people.
It’s impossible for our lives to be restored when we rely on people.
People can try to help, but only heaven can completely restore our lives, because, in the end everything people have actually came from heaven.
So, we should always look in that direction!
“…A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven.” (John 3:27)
The Lord Jesus made the blind man look up instead of looking in the direction of people, as he had done at first.
There should be no doubt about this: if your life hasn’t yet been restored, it’s because you’re looking in the wrong direction.
When we look up to the Most High, everything that was impossible becomes possible.
Only then can there be a total transformation of our lives!
Never forget that even when people offer to help you, they’re limited, but heaven is not! And if there is no one to help, don’t worry, heaven is always available!
Lift up your eyes! Look up and always stay in faith!
