Look Up – May 19

19 May
  • “In the morning, O Lord, You hear my voice. In the morning I lay my requests before You–and I will look up!” Psalm 5:3

This was the Psalmist’s determination in the morning–and it should be ours. Preserved and protected through the night, we should look up with gratitude, and praise our God for His goodness. Aware of our dependence and needs, we should look up and beg mercies of our Almighty God for the new-born day. Sensible of our foes and dangers, we should look up and pray to be kept, guided, and sanctified by our ever-present God.

If we look within–it will discourage us; if we look around–it may distract us; if we look back–it may awaken fears; if we look forward–it may arouse anxiety!

But if we look up to God, it will preserve the head from swimming, the heart from sinking, the feet from slipping, and the hands from hanging down!

Beloved, let us look up! There our loving Father is; there our interceding Savior is; there all our supplies are; there our everlasting home is!

If we look to the Lord Jesus in faith, He will look down upon us in mercy; and looking, He will supply all our needs!

– James Smith
