When Abraham was faced with the impossible God told him to “Look up” Genesis 15:5. It was important for Abraham to a have a daily reminder of what God said and he was believing for. In this case God had told him that his inheritance would be like the stars. Every time he looked in the sky he could see a “vision” of the future.

It is good to keep the goal in mind when the going seems tough. Our lives in Hungary have been filled with a mixture of successes and failures. On the same day we can have a conversation with someone in Hungarian, understand every word and make ourselves understood then we talk to someone else, understand nothing and are unintelligible.

Winston Churchill once said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Courage is essential to living on foreign soil, without it we could easily raise the white flag and retreat. In those times where we lack courage we have learned to encourage each other. We remind each other of the goal, we remind each other that we shouldn’t look at our feet, we shouldn’t look back but we should “look up.”

We look up knowing that the completing the vision isn’t something we can do by ourselves. God shows us the path we should walk in but it is only with His help that we will get there.

Phil 3 vs 13,14

But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Heb 12 vs 1,2

And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.
