I Can’t See

We were in revival all last week with our preacher at another church. We sit right up front at our home church, but ended up sitting near the back for the whole week of revival (I’m sure we would have been welcome to sit anywhere, that’s just where we ended up). I lost count of how many times that Little Bit would stretch up on her tiptoes and say, “I can’t see!” Then I would have to lift her up on my lap and help her look between the heads in front of us to see what was going on.

I’ve thought a lot since then about how I can lift her up so she can see Jesus. It’s just as easy as pulling her up in my lap to read the Bible, say a prayer, talk about things of the Lord, and answer the questions she comes up with. When the time comes for her to make the choice, I want her to have a clear picture of who Jesus is and what it means to serve Him.

I’ve also been thinking about how many times I have to ask the Lord to lift me up so I can see. How often I let myself be surrounded by a crowd of distractions that interfere with my vision of what the Lord would have me to look at. But when I realize the situation I’m in, and ask Him for help, He always lifts me up above the confusion to get a better view.

And God hath both raiseup the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.

I Corinthians 6:14

And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

Ephesians 2:6
