Hold Your Head Up!

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever had a tragedy occur in your family?  Someone you loved with all your heart is no longer here with you.  The people who said they would never betray you have walked out on you at your lowest point in life.  The places you often visited to find relief no longer permit you to enter.  Has life ever hit you below the belt?  Just when you had both feet planted firmly on the ground, an unforeseen circumstance arose out of nowhere.  You thought everything was properly planned but the storms of life came and tore everything down.  Have you ever had your lifelong dreams threatened by a bad doctor’s report, or a job that decided to downsize, or a spouse who decided (s)he no longer wanted to be married.

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Hold Your Head Up!  While it is hard to recover after tragedy has struck, it is possible to recover.  You must understand, your ability to get back up and carry on will not come through your flesh.  It will not come through the amount of degrees you own.  It will not come through your iPhone.  Your ability to hold your head up will come by the power of the Holy Spirit of God.  The Bible declares in Psalms 121:1 - I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.  The help you stand in need of will only come when you lift your eyes unto the hills and realize God has not forgotten you.  Life might have hit you with a severe blow, but God can and will heal the wound.

My brother, my sister, what are you dealing with this morning?  What tragedy are you faced with today?  Do you feel as if you will not be able to make it?  Beloved, Hold Your Head Up!  There will be days when you cry and nights when you feel alone, but God has given us the Comforter (the Holy Spirit.)  It is during the hurtful days of our life that the Holy Spirit is able to show us His glory.  The Bible declares in Psalms 46:1 - God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Child of God, understand, your pain and my pain may be different.  But your God and my God are the same.  We serve a God who specializes in things, which seem impossible.  God loves you.  Hold Your Head Up!   Remember, earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal!  My Prayer for You Today: Father, help my friend through this tragic time in his/her life.  Manifest Your presence.  Let the Holy Spirit take control.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!  

Scripture Reading for Today: Psalms 126:5
