Luke 21:28 ” When these things began to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

Here Jesus was instructing His disciples on the signs of the End of the Age…telling them to look up!  But why?  When we’re preoccupied with our own thoughts, feelings, and emotions…we’re looking down or inward.  But it’s not until we lift up our head from that fetal position that we can clearly see God.  For it tells us in Psalm 121:1, “I lift up my eyes to the hills – Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord.”  Also in Psalm 123:1 this idea is repeated, “I lift up my eyes to You, to You whose throne is in heaven.”  That’s because sadly, when we’re fixated on ourselves, we totally miss out on what God is doing around us.
