Unfulfilled hopes and destinies? I would give you Philippians again: what Jesus starts, “He will perform it.” (Philippians 1:6)
What is my move, then? Right where I am at today, I have to lift up my eyes. That means get your eyes off of the muck, get them off of the ground, get them off of the stuff, get your eyes off of flesh, get your eyes off of Earth; and lift them up and claim God’s promise from where you are!
Whatever your “are-ness” may be: sin, failure, sickness, loneliness, worthlessness, defeat; whatever you face, “Lift your eyes from that place now,” not tomorrow; right this minute! And do what? Arise. Now, walk on it. Don’t expect an angel to carry you over the land. Get walking. Put some blisters on your feet.
“Lift up now thine eyes, from the place where thou art. Arise, and walk.” And what is going to happen? The God of Abraham is going to do what He said. Revival is here when I don’t have to ricochet off the walls to get a response, when the Word of God convinces by its power.
Do you know why this is going to happen? Because He doesn’t change.
