Today’s devotional is from Max Lucado’s Grace for the Moment:

Focus on God’s Majesty

You have not seen Christ, but still

you love him.  You cannot see him now,

but you believe in him.

1 Peter 1:8

Some years ago a sociologist accompanied a group of mountain climbers on an expedition.  Among other things, he observed a distinct correlation between cloud cover and contentment.  When there was no cloud  cover, and the peak was in view, the climbers were energetic and cooperative.  When the gray clouds eclipsed the view of the mountaintop, though, the climbers were sullen and selfish.

The same thing happens to us.  As long as our eyes are on God’s majesty there is a bounce in our step.  But let our eyes focus on the dirt beneath us and we will grumble about every rock and crevice we have to cross.  For this reason Paul urged, “Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you.  Look up, and be alert to the things going on around Christ–that’s where the action is.  See things from his perspective” (Col. 3:1-2 MSG).

The Great House of God


With everything going on these days, this is a good reminder.

We must keep our eyes fixed on the Lord Jesus Christ.

He is our salvation and we will go nowhere that he has not already gone, nor will we go there alone.

He is our blessed hope!

May God Bless You, until Christ Returns!
