What are you looking at?…

Standard

Have you ever noticed a group of people looking up and it made you look up too, to see what they were seeing?  As Christians, we can be that group of people looking up, instead of at other people, places, & things.

Psalm 121 says, “I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; From where will my help come?  My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.”

How powerful!  The Psalmist says there is only one place he can receive true help–from the Lord.  Then, he describes to us the power of the help, “Maker of heaven and earth.”

Do you have a problem?  Are you in despair?  Is your heart hurting? Are you beginning a new job?  Looking for a job?  Do you have a broken relationship?  Are you longing to walk with God daily?  Are you a weary mom?

Our tendency is to look to ourselves or others for help.  Or sometimes to our idols, our “functional gods.”  Today, choose to look to the mountains, look unto the Lord.  Set your eyes on Jesus.  Talk to Him about every need, struggle, failure, hope and desire.

Mark 5:1-20 tells of a shackled man who was filled with many demons.  Verse 6 says, “And SEEING JESUS, from a distance, he ran up and bowed down before Him.”  Jesus sent the demons out of the man and made him whole again.  This man went to his neighbors and told them about Jesus and they MARVELED.  All because he saw Jesus.

As you SEE JESUS, you will be changed.  Those around you will begin to look up too and ask, “What are you looking at?”  And at the truth, they too will marvel.
