"Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens." (Psalm 123:1,
The Psalmist in this Psalm expresses anguish over those who are oppressing and
mistreating him. He calls on God for justice and help because there is no one else
to call on. All others have failed him. Only God can deliver and make things right
in His life.
The reality is that all of us should look to God for our help and assistance. And
yet, not only in times of trouble and despair, but we should look to Him for
everything. When we seek God only when we are in need, we are acknowledging
that God is a resource. Yet when we seek Him for everything, we are declaring the
God is our source. The source of all we need and the source of our being.
We who are mature in the Lord look to God every day. We seek Him everyday.
We do not wait until we are in need to seek Him. We acknowledge that we know
He is the source of our being. While the world looks to government, social
programs and other people for help and assistance, UNTO GOD WE LOOK!
