Focus on God: Gaze Upon Him
Yesterday morning, the sunrise as seen from our upstairs front window was spectacular! I immediately retrieved my camera and starting taking shots of God’s handiwork. I did not want to waste any time because the awesome scene in front of me was changing moment-by-moment. Later on, the thought came to my mind, “That’s how I should be when I behold the beauty of God. Although He is immutable, His beauty, His ways, and His words should leave us awe-struck with wonder longing for the next glimpse of His glory. What an awesome God Who reveals Himself to us day-by-day (Psalm 19:1-6).
That’s the challenge today. Read Isaiah 40 and gaze upon the Lord as though you were watching the sunrise in these beautiful mountains and countryside of East Tennessee!
Our goal, our heartbeat, our motivation, our joy for these 40 days is that God would so revive and change us that we would both pray and act as the people of God for the glory of God!
Read: Isaiah 40
Answer the following:
1. Record in your journal the snapshots of God that you have gazed upon in Isaiah 40.
2. Just as we do on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, share your “snapshots” with someone today. Perhaps it will be one who does not care about our God.
Pray: Use Isaiah 40 as a prayer guide to praise God for Who He is, as a prayer guide for your fellowship with Him and as a prayer guide for your petitions.
Meditate: Put into a sentence what God has revealed to you about Himself that you can meditate on today.
