Day 10 of 10 – Turning from Looking Back to Looking Up

Luke 21:28 (NLT)

28 So when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near!”


You are The Bright Morning Star

Revelation 22:16-17 (NLT)

16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this message for the churches. I am both the source of David and the heir to his throne. I am the bright morning star.”
17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life.


Forgive us for being weighted down with cares and bound up in our sin. remind us to lift our eyes up in preparation of your coming & forgive us for our sin, oh God: cares of this world and today’s worries.

Hebrews 12:1 (NLT)

God’s Discipline Proves His Love
12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.


A harvest in North America

Philippians 2:10-11 (NLT)

10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

PRAY: for believers to prepare for Christ’s triumphant return, pray for the body of christ to live & work in anticipation of His return & for the bible to be accessible & readable in all languages.


Turn from Looking Back to Looking Up

Set your eyes upon the return of Christ. talk with your community of believers about how you can further prepare for the return of Christ.

2 Timothy 4:8 (NLT)

8 And now the prize awaits me—the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.
