SEPTEMBER 18, 2013 – LOOK BEYOND – Don’t you just love to look through binoculars? You are able to look and see far beyond what your human eyes are capable of seeing.  A woman was speaking with me the other day and said these words to me, “I know that your life has to be hard too. How do you keep going?” I immediately said this, “For the joy that was set before Him, He endured the cross (Hebrews 12:2). Jesus had joy facing the cross because He saw what was beyond the cross. That’s how I make it through this time. I see beyond the cross that I have to face in my life right now.”  She thought that I was talking about arriving in heaven but I shared this – Psalms 27:13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.(NKJ) Look beyond the cross that you are carrying in your life right now and see what is on the other side in the land of the living! Look beyond your pain and see your healing. Look beyond your tears and see your laughter. Look beyond your poverty and see your prosperity. Look beyond the promise that the Lord has given you and see the fulfillment of that promise! Look Beyond – It’s There – Right On The Other Side!
