Aiming too Low

,

Most of us, if not all of us, aim too low. Due to the gravitational pull of our fallen nature; our dreams are all too ego-centric, hence earth-bound, & limited to our natural finite abilities. The consequences are visions and dreams that are only as big as we are and no larger, thus we settle for far too little. Yet we should not aim at the high and lofty dream or ideal that we revere, but we must set our gaze on the Resurrected Christ seated above in the Heavenlies. When we look to Him - the One Who said “lift up your eyes for the harvest is plenteous” will gently lift our chin with His nail-scared Hand, raising our sight-line above the horizon of the fret & fray of this burdened world. It is then we discover we are not looking to anything other than into His Eyes of compassion. Consequentially natural dreams become as foolishness and a brand new vision takes over - a vision that is bigger than us, beyond our limitations impossible by nature. When our aim, our gaze is upon a victorious, gracious Savior - it is then we stop living the possible and we begin to live the supernatural. Only then will we be truly content and happy.
