Levi Lusko was a guest speaker at church at the start of the year and shared a message that really encouraged me. It was titled Through The Eyes Of The Lion based on his book with the same title. Of the many things, he touched on I will share what really stood out to me.
The key scripture was 2 Corinthians 4: 16-18
16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
We don’t see the world as it is but through the way we see ourselves.
It is important to look at life through the eyes of a lion, they see 6 times better.
Always prays Ephesians 1.
When I see the invisible, I can do the impossible.
I must look at life through the lens of faith.
2 Kings 6.
Never come to conclusions based on the natural.
Whenever I feel stressed, look away and load up a promise from God and His word and look at the situation again.
Establish roots that go deep down.
Proverbs 10: 25.
Let God use my pain.
In God’s economy there is no waste.
God puts to use what He puts me through.
I have to be anointed first before I get to where God wants me to get, I have to go through the pressing.
Suffering is not an obstacle to being used by God, it is an opportunity for you to be used like never before-Levi Lusko.
