Topic: Change Focus

Opening Scripture: John 11:41″then they took away the stones from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes where the dead man was lying and said, “Father I thank you that you have heard me”
There is something I want us to learn from our opening scripture, it says then they took away the stones from the place where the dead man was lying; talking about Lazarus who was dead, Jesus knew quite alright that Lazarus was dead yet the people still went further to take away the stones. Now take note in life, there are definitely going to be some people who are going to uncover our hurt before us.It could just be that you’ve not been able to get a job, someone might roll away the stone for you to really see clearly by telling you, for so long now you’ve really being jobless, how’s life treating you? Oh sister you are approaching age 40 now and you’re not yet married.It’s not like you don’t know these things, just like Jesus knew quite alright that Lazarus was dead yet they just had to roll away the stone, just the way most people are going to do same to you.
Despite all there is always what to do when the stones were rolled away for Jesus to see the remains of Lazarus properly, what did He do? ‘And Jesus lifted up His eyes’ Jesus refused to see what was set before Him, he looked up to God. As believers, when people are trying to bring you down, refuse to see what they set before and look up to God that’ why the bible says in psalms 34:5-“they looked unto Him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed”.
Those who look up to God will never know shame. Forget what your mockers set before u, look up to God with thanksgiving and you would emerge as a testimony in Jesus name amen. Remain Blessed.

Lesson for the day- Men would try to make you see how big your challenges are, just show them your big God.

Quote for the day- ‘look up to God’

Lifeforce prayer:Oh Lord, take care of all pit falls on my way to destiny.
I receive grace to be stable and strong in my life’s journey in Jesus’ name.
My place in life shall not be taken by another in Jesus’ name I refuse to be an instrument in the hands of satan in Jesus’ name.
I pull down all imaginations of the enemy concerning me today in the name of Jesus.
I connect myself to the grace to love and embrace work as part of life in the name of Jesus. Amen!!
