What are you facing?
“But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.”
When people are raging at you where do you look?
Like a stormy sea do you look at the waves?
Stephen didn’t look at the animal fury of the religious leaders.
He looked up to heaven.
At the hands of your persecutors will you be intimidated by their face as they shake their fists at you?
How do those who are imprisoned, mistreated, beaten and killed face their enemy? What does the suffering Church teach us?
I believe it is not to face your enemy but to look up.
Stephen looked up and saw. He didn’t see the anger of men but the glory of God and Jesus standing in the throne room.
What are you facing today?
Make sure it is heaven.
