Look to the Lord Until…

Sermon of the day: The Blame Game

 

Psalm 123:1-2

1 Unto You I lift up my eyes,
O You who dwell in the heavens.
Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters,
As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress,
So our eyes look to the Lord our God,
Until He has mercy on us.

Good Morning Men!

Have you ever needed to really trust in the Lord about something? Have you ever given the Lord a timeline? Or I should say a deadline?

I know I have. Maybe not directly but in my heart. I may have started to lose hope. I start to wonder if I should change course, change plans or pray less.

However look at the psalmist here. He lifts his eyes to the Lord, knowing He is the creator of heaven and earth. Far more great and majestic than anything he (or we) could conceive on his own. Then he gives us two examples of absolute dependency. I say absolute because the servant and the maid would turn nowhere else but to their masters.

Do we do that?

Then he describes the eyes of him and his people. Relentless in their faith and trust in the Lord their God. That He will deliver them from the contempt they are in.

My favorite word here is ‘until’. This tells me that not only is the psalmist trusting the Lord, but he is expecting the Lord to move.

Is this kind of faith and trust only for certain people?

Absolutely not.

Men, more than anything this world has to offer, the Lord God Almighty has created you to know Him and love Him above everything else. To seek Him first above every pursuit and desire you have. To trust Him through every storm and trial.

So how do we get to know Him like this? How do we build this kind of trust and faith in a God we cannot see clearly?

Men, Christianity is about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It’s personal because we need to spend time with Him. We need to spend time sharing our heart with Him. Every fear, every sin, every thing we are grateful for and everything in between. We need to spend time in His Word to learn His amazing and perfect characteristics. So that when trial comes, doubt will try to creep in. But we will have the knowledge and faith to say; Oh no, that sounds different from my God that I am learning about. For example: My God says He will never leave me or forsake me. My God says with man it is impossible, but with Him anything is possible.

If you have not, asked Him to come into your heart, ask Him. Ask Him to cleanse you of all sin. Ask Him to renew your mind. Ask Him to fill you with His Holy Spirit. Ask for help. These are slam dunk prayers brothers. If you pray them with sincerity, God will move.

Just don’t take your eyes off the Lord UNTIL He moves.
