The Lord lifts up the humble. Psalm 147:6
Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system, and its massive size gives it a powerful gravitational force—2.5 times that of earth. That means if you weigh 100 pounds on earth, you would weigh 250 pounds on Jupiter. Think of how hard it would be to get out of bed every morning on Jupiter!
Some days we do feel like there are unusual gravitational forces pulling us down. Sometimes we feel a heavy downward pull on our personalities, emotionally, morally, and spiritually. But the One who rose from the Mount of Olives and ascended into the clouds can keep us uplifted and buoyant. When we walk humbly with Him, He lifts our countenance. When we lift Him up in praise, He lifts our spirits. He lifts us high enough to get a good breath of heaven.
Make the upcoming year an uplifting year by having the humility to cast your burdens on the Lord’s shoulders and to treat others with kindness, gentleness, and concern. Put the Lord first and others second. When Jupiter-life forces weigh you down, let the force of Jesus lift you up. When we lift Him up in our hearts, He lifts us up by His power.
God knows the cure for a heart weighed down by concerns and irritations—praise! Charles Stanley
