Look Up

I will lift up my eyes to the hills—From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.
Psalm 121:1-2 NKJV

As a Pastor recently gave a benediction he said to the church;
“Now with your head raised…look up and receive the blessing…

Numbers 6:24-26 New King James Version (NKJV)
“The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”

As a mom, it made me think how many times I’ve held my child’s face in my hands as he looked up toward mine. The image of it is burned into my heart and mind. Imagine how the Lord feels when we lift up our eyes and face heavenward toward His. Can you feel His hands clasping your face in them as a loving father would? Try- look up, take a deep breath, and know He holds you in the nail-scarred palms of His hands. Truth.

Be blessed…
