Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us to lift our eyes from the earthly to the divine. Psalm 121:12 is referenced…”I will lift my eyes to the mountains; from where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the maker of Heaven and Earth. (NIV)
When I think about lifting my eyes from what’s earthly and earthbound, I think about discipline, perseverance, patience, peace, and quietness of spirit in times of upheaval within. I did a study some years ago on high-mindedness. It had to do with this message of seeking the divine way, the joyful way, the more peaceful way. When we lift our eyes to what is divine and honorable, what brings dignity, or preserves dignity, we find those ways. When we find those ways, we truly can loosen the bonds that keep us tied to futility. As we do this, we find more powerful purpose(s) and a more purposeful power in all we do.
