Look up

Look Up!

This is a recent Face Book post by Jane Hansen Hoyt. Follow Jane on Face Book.

We are living in a day when our seeing and hearing must be tools of the Heavenly Kingdom. We will sometimes be required to make split minute decisions. We cannot depend on reasoning, but on what our eyes and ears have taught us about how Heaven works.

It is interesting to note that when the blind man was healed at Bethsaida and he first opened his eyes, he saw men like trees, walking. But then Jesus put His hands on his eyes again and MADE HIM LOOK UP. That was when he was restored and saw everyone clearly! Do you want to see clearly from Heaven’s perspective? We need to look up.

It is in the looking at things from an upward perspective that we can begin to walk in an upward perspective.

  • Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly. Mark 8:25
  • Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:2
  • I will lift up my eyes to the hills— from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2
  • . . . nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You. 2 Chronicles 20:12
  • Lord, I want to see clearly! I will not be distracted by the things of the world around me. I will keep my eyes, my ears and my heart turned fully towards You. I will make decisions from Heaven’s perspective and live in Your upward calling.

God Has Given You Air Supremacy! Heaven to Earth Declarations to Propel the Kingdom

The apostolic, prophetic, praying church around the world has now established air supremacy over the enemy. You have air supremacy! Now go deal with the enemy and relentlessly drop “bombs” from the Heavenlies on him until he is no longer able to resist you. – Dutch Sheets at the Aglow Jubilee Conference.

In aerial warfare, air supremacy is the highest level of dominance when one side holds complete control of the skies. God has given us this domination over the works of the darkness in the earth. Decree the Kingdom of Heaven into the nations! Drop spiritual missiles that defeat the works of darkness on earth.


We stand in the authority of Isaiah 22:22 The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder. So he shall open, and no one shall shut; and he shall shut, and no one shall open.

  • We take the key to the house of David and close the spiritual gates over unreached nations of the world to the prince of darkness and death. Ephesians 2:2; John 10:10
  • We open gates of nations to the Prince of Life and Peace. Acts 3:15; Isaiah 9:6
  • We welcome You, KING of GLORY!
  • We declare that what God has opened no man or spirit of darkness can shut. What God has closed, no man or spirit of darkness can open. Revelation 3:7


  • O Lord of the Harvest send out Your laborers to the harvest fields. Give Your Aglow men and women vision to see the fields that are ripe. Lord, open doors of opportunity to impact nations for You. Take us out of our comfort zones and enlarge our hearts us with Your heart for the lost. Luke 10:3
  • We answer Your call with “YES Lord, send me!” Isaiah 6:9
  • Anoint us to go into the highways and hedges and compel them to come in, that Your house may be filled! Luke 14:23


  • O Lord of the Increase may the seeds You have scattered over the earth bring forth a hundred-fold Harvest for Your kingdom! I Corinthians 3:7, Matthew 13:8
  • We declare that Aglow is propelling Your Kingdom to every nation on earth. We shall proclaim the gospel to set the captives free! Luke 4:18
  • Bring forth powerful Kingdom communities for Your Glory!


  • O Desire of All Nations shake the nations so that they will come and fill Your glorious temple! Haggai 2:6-7
  • Let the earth be filled with Your glory and Your praises so that the earth may yield her increase! Psalm 67:6
  • We call in the increase from the north, south, east and west — COME! — so the Lord’s barns may be filled with wheat, and “the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father!” Mathew 13:30, 43

Anti-Human Trafficking – Watch and Pray

January 11 is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day in the USA. Be aware of similar awareness days in your nation. Human trafficking is a wicked scheme against the beauty of God’s creation that is not limited by national borders. It is a global problem that can be exposed so that the sin stops and victims are rescued and healed as we watch and pray.

  • Pray that the Church will be unified and viewed as a valuable and necessary resource in this battle (John 17:23).
  • Pray that traffickers and buyers will find their transactions interrupted and their wicked plans frustrated (Ps. 9:16, 10:15, 146:9). Pray they will see the reality of what they are doing and seek help (Phil. 2:3–4; 1 Cor. 6:18–20).
  • Pray that victims will be found and will receive the offered help despite fear, threats, and deception (Matt. 10:28; Ps. 72:12–14). Pray they will experience restored minds, bodies, and lives through Christ (Zech. 9:11–12; Rom. 12:2).
  • Pray that law enforcement and rescuers will have a shield of physical and spiritual protection as they hear about and see the horrible violations done to the victims (Ps. 5:11–12).
