As we walk this journey home, we are faced with many distractions. Sometimes we will encounter others who hold our worldview in contempt. What do we do?
We focus our eyes on the LORD, the one enthroned in heaven.
I lift my eyes to you,
the one enthroned in heaven. (v. 1 CSB)
We ask the LORD to show us favor on our journey.
Like a servant’s eyes on his master’s hand,
like a servant girl’s eyes on her mistress’s hand,
so our eyes are on the LORD our God
until he shows us favor.
Show us favor, LORD, show us favor,
for we’ve had more than enough contempt. (v. 2-3 CSB)
We keep walking, our eyes on the LORD every step of the way.
Father, I lift my eyes to You. You are enthroned in heaven, sovereign over all. I will focus on You and not on what others say. Show me Your favor as I walk this journey. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
