What Are You Looking At?

”Let my vindication come from you; may your eyes see what is right.”  Psalm 17:2

 What you are looking at has a profound effect on where you are going. When your hands are on the steering wheel, your eyes will determine where you will go, our hands and feet follow our eyes. It is no different in our moral behavior. If our eyes are fixed on immorality, we soon find our response following.

Even if our eyes are fixed on the problem, it’s hard to see the answer. When all we see is the mountain before us, it becomes impossible to see anything else. In our workplace, we can become so filled with the work right in front of us that we may not even see what God is up to around us.

It’s nice to take a break and look up. We are always invited to look up and receive a different perspective.  Seeing from a different perspective gives us insight to what God may be doing. However, if all we do is keep a tight grip on our life without having room for God, it becomes about us. Taking a look up will give us a bigger view of our life. It will reveal that it is more than temporary, for God has created and given us eternity.  Can we stop gazing at momentary pleasures and fix our eyes on what will last for eternity?

What has your attention?

You who fear the LORD, praise him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! Revere him, all you descendants of Israel! Psalm 22:23

There are many things in this world we can admire. There are many famous people we may stargaze over because of all the abilities they have been given. We may soon be finding ourselves praising them and honoring them to the place they get all of our attention. We see them behind the TV screen which grasps a lot of our daily attention. We would instead praise the celebrity or athlete behind the screen than the One who is truly worthy.

This isn’t to make us feel guilty, but it is written to change us. David called out and said for those who fear the Lord, Praise Him. If we admire God, then praise should be a daily heartfelt response. Maybe our hearts have been overtaken by false idols, and there isn’t enough room for fearing God. Could it be, we have allowed to much space to worship idols instead of the One True God?

David called out to the descendants with an an exclamation point behind his statements. He knew there would be other idols trying to compete with the fear of the Lord. We too are descendants of Jacob and like our ancestors, it’s time to honor, revere and praise His name. It could be time to get rid of what’s taking the place of our daily praise! Making praise a regular exercise will conquer the invasion of the idol.
