Let all the world look to me for salvation! For I am God; there is no other.Isaiah 45:22 (NLT)
To look to someone or something means to seek and expect help, answers, and solutions from them.
It means to trust, depend on them. Also, whosoever or whatever you look to is your source of inspiration, motivation, your mentor, example, standard, idol, superstar, icon.
Many have looked to themselves, others, material possessions, achievements, personal abilities and merits, man made systems to put them over and sustain them in life but were disappointed.
The Lord is our true reliable help. No one who looks to the Lord can ever be put to shame. Not only is He able but also willing to always save, deliver, support, provide, guide, and keep us secure. Here is a testimony of one who witnessed this truth firsthand:
“I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces” Psalms 34:4-5
We look to the Lord by praying to Him.
Worried, troubled, tired, afraid, confused, stuck…? Look to the Lord or from a line in one old church hymn …take it to the Lord in prayer.
