What Are You Looking At?

As you read these words, take a look at what’s behind you.

Don’t take your eyes off this post. Just look behind you and keep reading.

Unless you stopped reading and turned around to look, my guess is you’re still looking at this post.

It’s a proven fact.  We can only see what we’re looking at. And we can’t look at two things at once.

The Psalmist once said,
“Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD;
for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.” – Psalm 25:15

He had figured it out.

As long as he was looking to the Lord, he couldn’t see the net at his feet. If he looked at the net, his natural inclination was to try to untangle it himself.

The Psalmist learned that he could only look one place at a time.

When he looked to the Lord, the Lord did the untangling he couldn’t do himself.

What are you looking at?

The tangled mess at your feet?

Or the only One who can do the untangling?

We can only look at one thing at a time.  

Let’s look to the Lord.

And turn our anxious looks away from what we can’t untangle on our own.
