Have A Gawk….

“I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” 
Psalm 16:8

When buying a new car people generally pick a favourite make, model & colour. While they’re contemplating their purchase, they start seeing the same type of car everywhere. They seldom noticed them before, but now that they’re aware they keep seeing them. We only see what we look for.

Today’s verse lets us know it’s the same with God. When we become aware of what He can do we will see His amazing works everywhere. Some people never see the simple or great things that God does. This doesn’t mean that God isn’t doing anything; it means they’re not looking. We only see what we look for.

When we focus & keep our eyes on what the Lord is doing, we’ll quickly discover how close He is. The psalmist says He is close enough to hold hands… Wow! Not only is God close but He also wants to stabilize our lives so that we will not be shaken. I need that in my life and I’m sure you do too.

This week let’s set our sights on seeing the marvellous works of God that surround us. All we have to do is look and we will see. This will help us remember how close He is and how much He cares for us. God’s goal is to deliver greater stability into our lives and this simply starts by opening our eyes and seeing all that He is doing.
