QT – Psalm 123

Vs. 2, “As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid look to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till he shows us his mercy.”  This is known as a lament Psalm and the fourth of a our ascent psalms.  We are the servants, He is the master…We are to be truly devoted to Him.  Remember, they sang this Psalm as they were approaching Jerusalem.  This was the time to seek after God.

Regarding application…Mercy Needed.  Vs. 3, “Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.”  As we live in this world…the weight of sin and other’s who go against us can be exhausting.  That’s why they would travel so far to turn back to the Lord during these Feasts.  Each and everyday, we should seek out the mercy of God to be upon  us.  I’m thankful His mercy is here today!
