And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.– Luke 19:4-5
In order for us to receive the blessings of God, we need to position ourselves. When we position ourselves, we put ourselves at an advantage. Zacchaeus wanted to see Jesus and instead of pitying himself on how short he was because he could not see over the crowds, he made a decision that he would run before the crowds and climb up in a tree. He position himself into receiving a blessing. Because when Jesus came to that spot, he looked up and said to Zacchaeus, today I will abide at your home. Position yourself to be blessed by seeking God.
