Share this story:

“And Moses made a serpent of bronze and put it on a
pole, and if a serpent had bitten any man, when he looked to the
serpent of bronze [attentively, expectantly, with a steady and absorbing
gaze], he lived.” Numbers 21:9 (AMP) 

Our opening text is an
excerpt of the story of the brazen serpent. When the children of Israel
sinned against God and He sent serpents to bite them and many died.

the people of God cried out to Him for mercy and
salvation and Moses pleads to the Lord on their behalf, God instructed
him to make a brazen serpent and hang in on a tree and if any that man
is bitten can only BEHOLD this serpent, he will live.

The miracle the
children of Israel saw on this day was so great and miraculous. The
miracle of the brazen serpent is a prototype of the life we ought to
live in this dispensation.

wonder Hebrews 12:2 says, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of
our faith…

The psalmist understood this which is why he said in Psalms
I will lift up my eyes to the hills, from whence cometh my
help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

looking around and look up to God. The success of your life is not
dependent on your abilities or background but on how well you look to
the Word of God.

My help comes from God. I focus on God’s word rather than the challenges. I’m finishing strong.

Hebrews 12:2-3, Psalms 121:1-2
