Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens. Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress,
So our eyes look to the Lord our God, Until He has mercy on us. – Psalm 123:1-4, NKJV
Just as a slave depended on his master and a maid on her mistress, we depend on God. We wait expectantly on His mercy which will always come. Unlike the master and mistress who may give their servants based on how they feel, God gives us what we need based on His goodness.
Don’t be downcast. Lift your eyes to the Lord who is always ready to pour out His loving-kindness and mercy upon you.
