Dailies ~ in His Word

Who are you lifting up?
Jesus lifted up the sick, and they were healed. He lifted up the hand of the demon-possess and they were delivered and free. He encouraged the writer of the book of 1 Timothy to tell us to lift up our hands to the Lord.

 But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick with a fever, and they told Him about her at once.  So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she served them. At evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were demon-possessed. Mark 1:30-32
Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he became as one dead, so that many said, “He is dead.” But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose. Mark 9:26-27
I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, 1 Timothy 2:8-9
If you search the Word about lifting people up then you will find that Peter lifted up a man and he was made whole and able to walk.  And that Jesus was lifted up from the earth and will draw all of us unto Him.
 He will in turn lift us up when we remember to be humble, because when we pray and someone is healed it is not we who caused the healing but the Lord Jesus and all we do is have faith and trust that He will do the healing, in Jesus’ name. Because it is not about us to lift ourselves up as someone who healed a person, it is God who give grace to the humble.
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. James 4:10
Heavenly Father, help us to stay humble in your sight, and always; remembering that You are the author and the finisher of our faith. It’s all not about us, even when we think we deserve the glory. It’s all about You!  To God be the glory! In Jesus’ name, amen.
