I want to talk to you today about something that’s more in the line of what I usually teach about. I teach a lot about biblical economics and I want to talk to you about “lift up your eyes.”

In John 4:35, Jesus says, “Say not there’s yet four months and then cometh harvest. Behold I say unto you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, for they are white already to harvest.” As you talk Bible talk – let me put it that way – we talk about the harvest sometimes as you have a benefit come to you like a financial benefit or some other benefit and we say, “Well, it’s a harvest.”

We plant our seed by giving into the gospel and then what we get back in the season comes in the harvest. And here’s what Jesus says: it’s so interesting. He says, “Don’t say it’s four months until the harvest. If you say it’s four months until the harvest, then you only have four harvests this year. But if you can just lift up your eyes …” It says, “lift up your eyes.” When you lift them up and look into the heavenlies, the fields are already white unto harvest. It’s literally saying you don’t have to wait four months for your harvest.

If you have given to God and you have given to Him believing that He is going to sow it back into your life thirty-fold, sixty-fold, and even a hundred-fold, it doesn’t have to come in four months or five months. It’s right now sitting on the dock of heaven waiting to come to you if you just can take and begin to speak positively about the fact that it’s coming in the next few days. It’s around the corner. It’s already on the way.

God is ready to bless me. He’s ready to move me into a new dimension. I just love that thought: lift up your eyes.

And here’s a thing from the natural that’s interesting: the closer to the earth you come, the slower time runs. It’s a proven fact. If you’re just one foot difference in elevation on planet earth and it’s already a measurable faster the clock that’s the higher. So, the Bible literally says, “Lift up your eyes; get your eyes off of the way the earth is.” The earth runs at a slow pace. It runs at some kind of a rhythm, but God is ready to move.

Just in a twinkling of an eye, He can take and bring into your life whatever is needed in your life. And don’t be bashful about it. If you have a financial need, sow a financial seed and ask God to bring back a harvest to you because He says those that do that it can come back thirty-fold. It can come back sixty-fold. It can come back a hundred-fold. And it can come quickly because we don’t have to run at this slow pace of the earth. You can lift up your eyes to the place where you set the time for the harvest. You call out and say, “God, now I need this miracle now. I need it now. In Jesus’ name I speak.”

If you’ve done that and if you ask Him to do it, He’ll come around and bring you that harvest that you’ve been looking for. So, lift up your eyes and get your eyes off of the slow operation of this earth. God wants to bless you, and He wants to do it rapidly.

God bless you.
