LOOK TO ME

Devotional for Saturday February 5, 2022


Morning Isaiah 45:20-22

Noon Psalm 2

Evening Psalm 34:1-6


The bronze serpent raised by Moses in the desert for the salvation of the disobedient Israelites is a clear reference to Christ on the cross. Christ endured the judgment for our sins and died in our place to forgive us and reconcile us with God. Today, Jesus is the source of healing for the poison of sin and the wrath of God. He is the source of eternal life. Looking to the lifted bronze serpent extended physical life to the Israelites, but looking to the risen Jesus gives us eternal life. Therefore, you must ask yourself: Where do I have my gaze? In this world and its passing glories? Or in the unfavorable circumstances that surround me? Many look to themselves and others, but in man there is no salvation. Jesus Christ said: “Look to me.” Do not take your eyes off the cross and the One who is the proof of God's love in your life! Today, from the top of Calvary, the voice of the One who took away our sins with his sacrifice resounds throughout the world "Look at me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth, because I am God, and there is none other.”

Morning Isaiah 45:20-22

20 Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.

21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.

22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.



Noon Psalm 2

1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.

5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.



Evening Psalm 34:1-6

1 Iwill bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.

4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
