“Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. (Isaiah 45:22 NKJV)
Brayden, my oldest son, is getting married in two weeks. I have been tossing a decision about the rehearsal dinner around in my head for the past couple of weeks. I was supposed to give caterer an answer, yesterday. I have talked to my husband about it. I have discussed it with a friend. I have even asked my son and his fiancé to choose. Even after they finally gave me an answer, I was still belaboring the point. Guess who I did not look to for the answer? You win the prize! No! I hate to admit it. I did not look to the Lord. I really make an effort to talk to God about everything, big and little. I only realized that I had not, this morning, as I read the words from Isaiah 45:22. I know God loves us so much that He cares about every detail of our lives. We just forget that sometimes.
How simple is message of salvation? “Look to Me and be saved!” His message is so effortless that even a child can accomplish His elementary and uncomplicated request of “look to Me.” We make things way too hard. We look to everyone else for our answers and He says, “Look to Me! I am God and there is no other!”
Can you hear Him?
When you are confused by the hard hits of life, LOOK TO ME and be saved.
When you are burdened by guilt and shame, LOOK TO ME and be saved.
When you are carrying the weight of the world, LOOK TO ME and be saved.
When your marriage is falling apart, LOOK TO ME and be saved.
When your kids are hurt and wonder off the path, LOOK TO ME and be saved.
When offense comes knocking at your door, LOOK TO ME and be saved.
When sickness is eating away at your body, LOOK TO me and be saved.
When you do not know where you are going to live, LOOK TO ME and be saved.
When you do not know what to do next, LOOK TO ME and be saved
When you do not know how to decorate a room, LOOK TO ME and be saved.
When you do not know what to wear to an event, LOOK TO ME and be saved.
When you can’t make a rehearsal dinner decision, LOOK TO ME and be saved.
When you do not know where you are going to spend eternity, LOOK TO ME and be saved.
I enCOURAGE you with the words of the One and Only, Savior, the Lord God, Creator of the entire universe and you, “Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other.”
P.S. I looked to Him this morning and immediately, got the direction I had been searching for. I am at peace. Decision is made. I rest assured that I am saved today and forever. Are you? Look to Him for the big and the little.
