Lift Your Head

We are going to experience many things in life that could cause our heads to be hung low.  We are going to go through many situations that will not be pleasant, but it is through all of those things that we face that we must do all we can to keep our heads lifted.  We cannot allow the stress, strain, and strongholds that we face in life to cause us to want to give up or throw in the towel, or to have our heads hung low.  

The Scripture reminds us to, lift up our heads, O ye gates; and be lifted up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.  I encourage you today to lift up your head, no matter what it is that you are facing.  Through all that life throws at you, lift up your head and look to The Lord.  When you get the strength to look to The Lord there is nothing that will be able to hold you down.  When you get the strength to look up to The Lord with tears in your eyes you will find strength that you never thought you had, because it does not come from you, but it comes from The Lord to whom you look.  

Lift up your head, and be lifted up, and the King of glory shall come in, and when He comes in there is no doubt that your situation will begin to change for the better and for your good.  No matter the storms I may face, or how difficult the task may be in front of me, I will continue to lift up my head, and as I lift my head I will be lifted up, and The King of glory will come, and when The King of glory comes in I will have the victory.  

Since I will continue to lift up my head through all that I face I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”


Through all of what life throws at me, Lord give me the strength to lift my head to look to you, and I know that if I lift my head you will step in and turn everything around in my favor.  In Jesus Name Amen.
