Looking Unto Him

Looking Unto Him

It’s another day that the Lord hath made and we should be glad and rejoice in it; no matter what’s going on outside. “Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise” (Psalm 33:1-3). We never know what a day will bring, but our focus should be on God- the Master of Creation. It is He that hath made us and not we ourselves. God has laid out the directions in His Word for times like these. 

“By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast” (vss. 6-9). Is there anything too hard for the Lord? The answer is no! You may wonder, if that’s the case why doesn’t God wipe out this ‘bug’? I have no answer for that and don’t believe anyone does (other than God). We must be so careful who we listen to. Many are trying to play God. Instead of the blame game, we should be looking within ourselves for the part we can play. Many have nothing to do with God anymore, our nation has just about run God out of the land and our leaders enact laws contrary to moral law. 

Listen what the Bible says so well, “The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth” (vss. 11-14). God is watching from His throne. “Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee” (vss. 18-22). As a nation, we should shun psychology and astrology for some good old kneeology. Can you imagine what could be accomplished if the world turned to God-on our knees?
