Look Where You Want To Go

Isaiah 45:22 – Look to Me, and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. (NKJV)

An interesting television show, "Canada's Worst Driver", has been on the air for a dozen years. The premise of the show is to find bad drivers and turn them into better drivers.

Along the way, the host reminds them of one of the most basic, if not one of the most important principles for proper driving skills. I can hear the lament of the host, Andrew, echo through my mind. How many times, I wonder, has the host repeatedly said to the drivers that one, all-important "prime directive" in driving? It is this: "Look where you want to go." If you look other than where you need to position the car, you will veer off course, or crash, or get stuck — guaranteed!

Similarly, in the Bible, Isaiah, arguably the best of the prophets in the Old Testament, invites all people on the planet to look to God. In other words, if a person wants to go to heaven, and wants to have eternal life with God and a peace that transcends our comprehension, then quite simply, the best advice is to "look where you want to go".

Look to God! When you're driven or you drive off course, look to the One Who knows the end from the beginning. In today's verse, thus says the Lord, "Look to Me and be saved." Why not follow His "prime directive"?

Prayer: Hear us, O Lord, as we humbly pray. Thank You, Almighty God, for eyes to see and ears to hear of Your grace, goodness, and love. Help us daily to look to You. Save us! We pray in Your Son's name. Amen.

    Thanks for a ‘to the point’ lesson. May God bless your ability to communicate the message and The Message.


    Thanks, Karl, for this message. The whole time I was reading your words, I was reminded of one of my grandfather’s sayings: “If you don’t know where you are going, how will you know when you get there?” His saying, like your words, seem to apply in so many situations in life.
    Blessings.
