Looking to God

Isaiah 45:22 “Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other.

I often speak to my dog Leo because of God adding him into my life during my sanctification process. I thought about this the other day, but a quite interesting thing I noticed about him is that he is still looking to me. I will leave him outside just for a few seconds and he will turn to see if I am coming out with him. If I don’t, he will keep looking for me. I didn’t train him to do this, he naturally does. He knows I feed him, give him shelter, and provide safety for him. In all respects he views me as his “master”.

Deuteronomy 4:29, “But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

Do we as proud human beings look to God like this? I can honestly say from my own experience “I try to, but not all the time”. When it should be ALL the time. We should never be away from our Master, Jesus Christ. We should always be seeking Him through His word, praying to Him without ceasing. In sinful flesh, those being sanctified by the Holy Spirit should be growing into this “always” seeking the Lord. It doesn’t happen overnight for many of us, but it should be growing and maturing every day. Where you depend of God minute by minute because He is the Master.

Psalm 70:4 “Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; And let those who love Your salvation say continually, “Let God be magnified!”

And it is not like God doesn’t want to live your life, He does, but He is always there. Not when you feel like it, not just when you need Him, not when life’s troubles come along, but always. As Romans 8:9 states “if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you”, you fully realize He is always there.  Faith is not seeing, it is believing without seeing. Faith doesn’t walk by sight, it walks in trust, full trust that God is real, and that you are with Him always.

Often in heated Facebook debates, I remind my opponents that “God sees every single comment”.  I do this to remind them that no one is outside of His realm. They might not be looking to God, but God is certainly looking!

Psalm 63:1  “O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water.”

If the Spirit of God indeed dwells in you, look to Him always. Look to Jesus Christ. It should make you quite uncomfortable and uneasy as my dog Leo is when his master is not in his sight.  Too often, we take God for granted. We push Him aside, we look to others instead of unto Him. I have counseled many who come to me for personal advice, I always ask if they brought this problem before God. If they hadn’t, I remind them to do so and believe He is listening. I am not the Master, I am just His servant. Some don’t like this, some do, but I always will try to point the person to the word of God, He is the Master.

Look unto God!

Psalm 10:4  The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts.
