Getting Things Into Focus (Psalm 123)
We all know the condition of myopia in which, without the aid of lenses, everything just seems to be a blur. Without these corrective lenses, we are in danger of losing our way, or of tripping up and causing ourselves some personal injury. Well, this Psalm is saying to us: Keep our eyes and focus on the Lord. It’s the Old Testament equivalent of “looking unto Jesus” from Hebrews 12:2.
