“Lift up your eyes round about and see; they all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from afar, and your daughters will be carried in the arms” (Isaiah 60:4).
In what was a time of desolation, the prophet challenges the people of God to be visionaries of hope; to dwell as victors in all things rather than victims of their circumstances. While everyone else is seeing and interpreting their adversity from an eye-level perspective, eyes of faith offer an elevated view to a horizon of not yet seen possibilities. In so doing, we lift others up and bring them along with us.
