"Lift up your heads"

What an encouraging and loving admonition is found in the Master's words, "Lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh"! What tender understanding it betokens, what compassion to all who are struggling with a false sense of discord, of loneliness, doubt, and self-pity, for it shows the way out of the tangled web of wrong thinking. Whatever our environment, whatever the discordant circumstances, wherever we find ourselves, right there in the midst of the difficult conditions we are to obey the injunction, "Lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."

By lifting up our thought to God, good, looking not upon the seeming discord as real, but turning from it to the truth that man is always in the presence of God, expressing the joy and confidence which are our spiritual heritage, we shall find the glory of God filling our consciousness to the exclusion of those thoughts which would separate us from the harmony that is ours by right of man's sonship with God.
