Day 32 of Lent :: Looking Up

“The very existence of the cross,
and of the crucified Christ, forces

us to make a crucial decision:
Will we look for God somewhere else,

or will we make the cross,
and the crucified Christ,
the basis of our

thought about God?”
Alistair E. McGrath

The Psalmist poses the question:

“I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
from where shall my help come?
Then he answers: My help comes from the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.”
Psalm 121:1-2

Reflection: Quietly consider this reality. Allow your mind to reflect on the truth that the Maker of Heaven and Earth is personally concerned with the details of your life, ready to send help whenever you call upon Him.

Seek to focus solely on God who meets you here, asking him to remove mental distractions. Ask Him to write His word for you from the Cross on your heart this day.
