Look to the Lord

In that day a man will look to his Maker,
And his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel.
He will not look to the altars, The work of his hands;
He will not respect what his fingers have made,
Nor the wooden images nor the incense altars.
Isaiah 17:7-8 (NKJV)

Unto You I lift up my eyes,
O You who dwell in the heavens.
Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters,
As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress,
So our eyes look to the LORD our God,
Until He has mercy on us.
Psalms 123:1-2 (NKJV)

Then Jesus said to the twelve, "Do you also want to go away?" But Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life." ~ John 6:67-68 (NKJV)

Isaiah envisions a time of devastation when people would turn their eyes from idols fashioned by the hand of man, and finally look to the Lord. The psalmist commits to look to the Lord and wait for mercy. Once you click off this screen, my prayer is that you will likewise look to the Lord.

These messages are intended to be inspirational, thought-provoking, and challenging. They are also fashioned by a fallible human author. Any power and truth in them comes from the Word of God upon which they are based, and from the Holy Spirit who inspires and enables me, not from me.

Thank you for reading my blog, and for the wonderful comments and e-mails which encourage me to persist with this challenging commitment. But please also dig into the Word and seek the Holy Spirit for yourself. If you don't have the time, better to skip my posts and look to the Lord alone for words of life.

Living Word of God, thank You for becoming flesh and living among us. Thank You for making Yourself and the Father known to us. Thank You for filling us with Your holy and powerful Spirit. Please draw us to look to You as readily as we look upon everything else which surrounds us.
