Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
With faith. Believe. Look to God. Follow.
“You are my Lord and God, and I look to you for safety. Don’t let me be harmed.” (Psalm 141:8, CEV)
Do you know the reason God created us with only one pair of eyes and placed them in the front of our head? Yup! You’re right so we could see where we are going. The only problem with that is there are times when we can’t see where we’re going and we need someone who can see for us. For example on the morning September 13, 2013 I knew I would be having heart surgery but I could not see where it would take me. With “the eyes of my heart” fixed on God and the testimony of the Psalmist, “I will always look to you, as you stand beside me and protect me from fear. With all my heart, I will celebrate, and I can safely rest.” (Psalm 16:8–9, CEV) I had a couple of secret weapons, I had faith and I had vision.
Writing on the subject of vision James Ryle says. “But vision is much more than a good idea that stirs the soul to temporary endeavors. Vision is the ability to see it, the faith to believe it, the courage to do it, and the hope to endure until it happens. Take any of these components away and vision fails. Each is vital, and indispensable.” With faith. Believe. Look to God. Follow.
“I look to the hills! Where will I find help? It will come from the Lord, who created the heavens and the earth. The Lord is your protector, and he won’t go to sleep or let you stumble. The protector of Israel doesn’t doze or ever get drowsy. The Lord is your protector, there at your right side to shade you from the sun. You won’t be harmed by the sun during the day or by the moon at night. The Lord will protect you and keep you safe from all dangers. The Lord will protect you now and always wherever you go.” (Psalm 121:1–8, CEV)
By the way you have those same secret weapons use them and follow the LORD leaving the outcome up to Him. And remember you can’t follow the LORD if you’re looking elsewhere!
BE strong in the LORD!
Grace and PEACE, Amen!
