Look First

The Holy Spirit DescendingAs Jesus came up out of the water, He saw the heavens splitting apart and the Holy Spirit descending on Him like a dove.  -Mark 1:10

It is good to see, with our own eyes, the results of our obedience.  Sometimes we do – in a friend’s face, a physical healing, a bump in our financial statement.  Most times, the result is there, but we just don’t see it – because we’re not looking.

Jesus was sure that His obedience to His Father’s will would be acknowledged – He looked to the heavens and His confirmation came.  It could have just gone down in history as a pesky bird drawn to the water by the movement of the breaking light on its surface – but it was not so in His eyes.

Looking is the first step to seeing, and in seeing, we begin to recognize every day as a walk in a shower of blessings.
