By Evangelist Uche Christian
The secret to why faith is activated during my meetings out in the missions field, and people are healed, is that I do not see the sickness. Many times, I do not even see the person who comes forward to be prayed for. I look up and see Jesus Christ high and lifted up. Far above principalities and powers, and cancer. I see the Jesus who died to set us free and heal us – not the blindness or mutilation. Do you get it?
Stephen Only Had To Look Up
It’s what Stephen saw when he looked up. In front of him was an angry, teeth gnashing mob with stones drawn, ready to take life. Imagine the trepidation that would have engulfed him had it not been what he saw. His faith got a boost when He looked up. He proceeded to say those immortal words: “Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God”. Oh, do you get this? I feel excited right now.
Look Up and Live
The reason things became harder for you, is because you only saw the terrifying circumstance and knee-jerk reacted to it. You didn’t look up. Do this then, instead, look up to Jesus Christ, the author, and finisher of your faith. Rather than fearing how big the mountain before you is, open your mouth and declare to the mountain (whatever it is), how big your God is. I dare you to look up today.
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 – Psalm 121:1-2
