“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
When man’s surroundings try to tell him that his world is falling apart, he can turn his mind toward the Spirit, and suddenly redemption draws within and his inner life is instantly filled with hope and clarity. Once this transformation occurs within, his surroundings and situations no longer seem hopeless, but hopeful. He then can make decisions that is needed to be made with authority and confidence. When their is chaos, it only is confirmation that a door has opened in heaven and God is about to descend, bringing redemption and good will to our lives. Keep your head up and not down upon your surroundings. The things on the earth are an illusion compared to what awaits to come from within heaven. Don’t get down, get up!
