Who Are You Looking At?
What makes you not do what you know you should or could do? Interesting to me that just last night our small group talked about fear. What causes it? How do we overcome it? Then I woke up and my time in God’s Word had me hanging out with Moses. Quick recap of the first few chapters of Exodus:
Moses sees burning bush. Moses talks to God. God says, “Hey, you’re going to lead my people out from under Pharaoh’s thumb and into freedom in the Promised Land.” Moses makes one excuse after another, but finally goes. Moses talks to Pharaoh. Pharaoh makes it even harder on the Israelites. They don’t even want to hear what Moses has to say anymore.
Then God comes to Moses again and tells him to take another trip to Pharaoh. Moses’ response, “Look at me. I stutter. Why would Pharaoh listen to me?” (Ex 6:30 – The Message) In the very next verse, God’s response is “Look at me.”
Stopped me dead in my tracks. How much of what I do and don’t do is because I’m looking at myself instead of Him? My weaknesses instead of His strength. My faithlessness instead of His faithfulness. My fickleness instead of His steadiness. My faults instead of His perfection.
What would happen if my eyes were truly fixed “on Jesus, the Author and perfecter of our faith?” Who are you looking at? How many times do I tell God, "Look at me” only to have Him respond, “No…you look at ME!”
