“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go, I will guide you with My eye.”Psalm 32:8
Have you ever gotten “The Look”? You know, that moment when the person you’re with has this “don’t you dare” expression on their face.
In this psalm, David is suggesting that there is an opportunity for us to have such a close relationship with God that we could imagine what the look on His face will be if we take that next step.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could read God’s word as if He was sitting right there next to us and we could get the full expression of importance when it comes to certain scriptures.
I believe that’s the difference between meditating and reading. I am all for reading plans of going through the Bible in a year, but I truly believe that it’s those time when we “digest” and “contemplate” His word so that we are nourished and able to grasp the heart of God.
There was a time when my dog was a puppy that he wouldn’t leave my side. It wasn’t until a near fatal occurrence with the busy road that I realized he had gotten to the point of chasing those things that dogs chase and forget about it. For now on it’s “The leash”.
The psalm goes on to say in verse 9
“Do not be like the horse or like the mule, (or dog), which have no understanding, which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, else they will not come near you.”
The Psalm begins with the writer talking about being in a place that is troublesome and is where we end up when we are not under the watchful eye of God.
So let’s make sure that we are so in tune to the God of the universe that we could be able to see “The Look” on His face before we take the next step. – Rob Russomano is a graduate of the Colony of Mercy and serves full-time at America’ Keswick
