Lift Up Your Eyes

Daily Reading: Deuteronomy 3

Scripture Focus: Go up to the top of Pisgah and lift up your eyes westward and northward and southward and eastward, and look at it with your eyes (Deuteronomy 3.27)

Devotional Thought: When Moses came to the end of his life, he was told to climb Mount Pisgah and to look over into the Promised Land. Though he would not enter it, God showed it to him, telling him to look to the west, north, south and east. Don't miss anything!

Just as Moses lifted up his eyes to look, let us look...

• Westward. To the west of Moses lay the Promised Land. What was before him was seen only from a distance. Westward indicated what lay ahead - the future. Let us always have a forward-looking mindset. As we live our lives, may we be pulled into the glorious promise of God. He has prepared a place for us, an eternal dwelling!

• Northward. To Moses' north lay the region of Galilee. This was to become the region where Jesus would focus his ministry. It represents the gospel of the Kingdom where lives are changed, souls saved, sins forgiven, and miracles wrought. As we look northward, may we do so with faith that God will do wonderful things.

• Southward. Moses looked toward Sinai and Egypt. There, God was seen in the burning bush, deliverance had come to Israel, the law was given, and the long journey of life had transpired. Looking to the south reminds us of great spiritual victories and God's great faithfulness.

• Eastward. That was the direction from which Moses had come. All the battles fought, the victories won, and the work completed lay behind him. There was nothing to be done with them except leave them in God's hands.

Lift up your eyes today. Don't miss anything! Celebrate the goodness and faithfulness of God.

Prayer: Lord, you have been so good to me! Help me to lift up my eyes and see all your blessings and accept with quiet confidence your will for my life. Amen.

Psalm of the Day: Psalm 10.16-18

6 The Lord is king forever and ever;

the nations perish from his land.

17 O Lord, you hear the desire of the afflicted;

you will strengthen their heart; you will incline your ear

18 to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed,

so that man who is of the earth may strike terror no more.
