LOOK UP!

Joseph.

I jornaled a Joseph prayer: “Lord, even in the midst of the trials, I realize that you are there.”

Then my Ari shared what she’d learned in her Bible study group that day. It was about Joseph and how even in the trials God gaurded his way.

He was despised by his brothers. They plotted his demise. He was wrongfully accused, yet he lifted up his eyes.

He was placed into prison. Helped others though he was overlooked. He continued to honor God, no matter how long his sentence took.

Every time he was in harm’s way, God was with him through it all. He looked up to where his help came from, so into despair He didn’t fall.

God would be his defender. The same God who saw his pain. He’d wait upon the God who would turn his heartache into his and other’s gain.

What was Ariella’s take away: God is with us, but we must choose to see.

Even in the trials He is for us…He’s Lord of our destiny.

Even in trials He is with us. He’s Lord of our VICTORY!

That’s precisely what Joseph in various trials did. He kept looking up to God, to see that He’s still big.

Joseph:

“As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.”

Genesis 50:20

Where are You now

When darkness seems to win?

Where are You now

When the world is crumbling?

Oh I, I-I-I, I hear You say

I hear You say

Look up child, ayy

Look up child, ayy

Where are You now (where are You?)

When all I feel is doubt?

Oh, where are You now

When I can’t figure it out?

Oh I, I-I-I, I hear You say

I hear You say

Look up child, ayy

Look up child, ayy

Look up child, ayy

Look up child, ayy

Look up

You’re not threatened by the war

You’re not shaken by the storm

I know You’re in control

Even in our suffering

Even when it can’t be seen

I know You’re in control

Oh I, I-I-I, I hear You say

I hear You say

Look up child, ayy

Look up child, ayy

Look up child, oh-oh-oooh

I hear You say, You say, You say

Look up child, ayy

I hear You say, You say, You say (look up, look up, look up, look up)

Look up child, oh-ooh, ooh, oh-oooh

I hear You say, You say, You say

Look up child, ayy

I hear You say, You say, You say (look up, look up, look up, look up)

Look up child

(I hear You say, You say, You say)

I hear You, I hear You calling my name, oh (Look up child, ayy)

I hear You say, You say, You say (look up, look up)

Look up child, ayy

Look up child, ayy

Look up
