[The Glory Unveiled]
3 He [Zacchaeus] wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd.4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way. ( Luke 19:3-4 )
Do you have your vision of the Christ clipped? Is the world and the voices of people eclipsing your understanding of divine truth. Has the full image of Christ been hidden from your sight because of your environment, physical challenge or something you cannot control? Sometimes life’s situations and the challenges that come with them seem to block our view of Christ. In the recent crisis we face, many Believers have their faith dumpened and their hope crushed. Sometimes we tend to succumb to the pressure from the world and the pains of dashed hope. Some of us just agree to flow with the status quo. We talk ourselves into believing that we are not good enough, we are not righteous enough or maybe we don’t have the advantages of other people to know Christ through His word, prayer and nature. But like the man Zacchaeus in today’s Scripture verse, we can do something about the fixed “problems” we have. We can use our challenges to our advantage to challenge us into exploring new territories and ideas. Zacchaeus was a short man who couldn’t have seen Jesus neither Jesus he, but he didn’t give up, he didn’t compromise with the situation, he did something that unbelievably put him at a position that all could see him including Jesus. Beloved, if you find yourself in a compromising position, reposition yourself.
