You Need to Get High

The other day, a friend was telling me of circumstances that were pulling him down.  Without skipping a beat, I said, “You need to get high.”

If you’ve never watched one of Lou Giglio’s Passion Conference messages, you should! Lou Giglio shows pictures of galaxies millions of light years away from us to show the unimaginable expanse of the universe, praising God in a staggering magnitude. The goal of his mind-blowing pictures is to explain that the One who holds the Universe in the palm of His Hand (Is. 40:12) is the Same Who holds you and me (Ps. 37:24). And there is nothing that escapes His attention (Prov. 24:12).

The writer of Hebrews tells us Jesus is our High Priest Who intercedes for us continually from the Throne on High to give us grace in our time of need (Heb 2:18; 4:16). From Jesus Who sits at the right hand of the Throne of God, there is an abundant supply of grace to lift us up from every “downer” circumstance in this life. “Though he stumbles, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with His hand” (Ps. 37:24). This is why I told my friend, “You need to get high.”
