Looking Up

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 123:1-4

Although it only has four verses, Psalm 123 delivers a strong message. For me, it provided a recognition of who God is--Master and Creator--and reminded me that He alone is in control.

What did this passage reveal to you about your relationship with God? What does "lifting up your eyes to God" mean or look like for you? Tami

Tami, I thought the following was too good not to share with you and others too.

Looking up is a good position to be in when seeking the Lord for help and direction from our Lord and Master!
As we look up to our Lord, He will lift up our spirits to keep strong because He is ready to help us if we only look up to Him!
What a wonderful Savior is our Lord and Master!

Looking to God is compared with servants looking to the hand of their masters and mistresses (verse 2). One commentator notes: "In eastern countries, masters often commanded their servants by means of hand signals [clapping for summoning and gesturing for directives], so the servants kept their eyes on the master's hand. This is what gave them direction for their work. But the master's hand was also the source of their provision, what they needed for their daily sustenance. Finally, the master's hand protected them in times of danger" (Warren Wiersbe, Be Exultant-Psalms 90-150: Praising God for His Mighty Works, 2004, note on verse 2). As God's servants, we are to look intently to Him for the slightest nuance of direction, for our daily bread and for help in times of need.

May we always look to God's hand to direct us-and to help us when the world around us ridicules and persecutes us for obeying Him. nd for help in times of need.
