Psalm 123:1 – 2 – To you I lift up my eyes, O you who are enthroned in the heavens! Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maidservant to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, till he has mercy upon us.
The Psalmist opens Psalm 123 lifting his eyes to God who sits in a position of authority in heaven and is ruler over all. We are to look at God as who we are to serve. Stay focused looking to God and seeking His mercy.
The God of all creation, ruler of heaven and earth is where my eyes should be fixed. God, who loved us so much that he sent Jesus to die on our behalf is our Lord and savior. As such, Christ should be (better be) positioned as the master of my thoughts and actions. I need look to Him as my master who bought me with His sacrificial blood. I must look to Jesus, follow Jesus and serve as He served. So I will look to God, not earthly gods and seek His compassion and mercy.
Thank you for the truth in your word and the encouragement it provides. Let me humbly submit to you God as master of my life. Focus my eyes on you to follow you, serve you and make you known.
