About the time we think all is smooth going along comes a mountain. When we keep our eyes on our problem we do not get anywhere. When wise we will take our eyes off the issue at hand and on the Word of God. Instead of struggling by ourselves we have the privilege of asking assistance from our Lord. He is our help in times of trouble. Instead looking down in discouragement we need to look up in faith as we continue on.
Look Up as You Climb
Look up as you God’s promises seek,
In confidence God’s Word speak.
When facing a mountain do not turn to look around.
Keep your focus on Jesus till you reach higher ground.
What is the mountain? It can be many things,
That attempt to hamper your way to the King,
Worry, fear, sadness, or despair,
It can be a thought of depression of life unfair.
Your mountain may be a person or a habit hard to break.
It can be the remembrance of a dire mistake.
Mountains are only a mountain to you.
They are not hard to the One that helps you through.
Mountains are removed when faith speaks.
Jesus, The Word, faced your largest mountain at Calvary.
Look up in your hard struggle and with faith pray.
God gives strength to climb or He moves the mountain out of your way.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
