Word for the day “God-ward Focus”

Psalm 123:1 (NKJV) Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who that dwell in the heavens.

A great portion of the Book of Psalms is about perspective and focusing our mind and heart in the right direction. Look closely today, Psalm Chapter 123 cuts right to the chase. Right out of the gate, it makes this powerful proclamation pertaining to perspective, “Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens.”

Of all things that the Psalmist could focus on, he chooses to focus on the Lord and the fact that He dwells in the heavens. His focus was God-ward, not self-ward or man-ward, or even world-ward. And it’s this God-ward focus that makes all the difference, not just in the Psalmist’s life, but in ours, as well.

That’s a powerful picture of what happens to us when we keep our eyes on the One who dwells in the heavens. We gain a God-ward focus and place it on things that invariably cause us to rise above our circumstances. I don’t know about you today but I have some things going in my life right now that is trying to pull my attention from the Lord!

But we must be intentional and God-ward focused about keeping our eyes on the Lord! Have a great day and don’t lose your Focus, your next steps in God are dependent on you keeping your eyes on the Lord who dwell in the heavens.
