Matthew 17:8 NIV
When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.
Something about this verse shook me this morning to the core of my being. I just couldn’t get away from the verse.
I kept hearing it over and over again: When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.
When they looked up.
So, where you’re looking at determines what you’ll see. Look in a certain direction and all you’ll see are your flaws, shortcomings, mistakes. Look in another direction and all you’ll see are other people, their dramas and their issues. Look in another area and you’ll see all the things the devil is doing.
But, when you look up…
Where are you looking at? Left and right? Front and back? Maybe down?
Or are you looking up?
When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus. Their fears vanished. Their troubled hearts became peaceful.
Continuing, I quietly closed my eyes while still lying in bed and whispered these prayers: “Holy Spirit, please help me to look up today, that I may see no one except Jesus.”
Oh my! Do you even have any idea how much the devil does to keep you looking everywhere except up? It’s certainly so hard in this world to not look at all the things he’s pointing out to you.
Thank God we have the greatest Help ever: The Holy Spirit.
So, quietly, without wasting any time, close your eyes and whisper the same prayer as I did: “Holy Spirit, please help me to look up today, that I may see no one except Jesus.”
