Look at God!

October 4, 2020

Many times, I will begin my day by examining the Verse of the Day as I meditate and share my thoughts in a blog post. From time to time, I will begin my morning meditation by examining the Phrase of the Day and what it inspires. The Phrase of the Day for October 4, 2020 is “Look at God!” This past week, I had an appointment with oncologist at the VA Hospital, and I received some good news, bringing to mind a poem that I had written with that title. I also thought of the title of a book recently published by James Edward Wilkerson, Jr.: “But God. . .Look at God!”

The poem “Look at God!” in a sense is also a response to a recent blog post: Pray: the Latter Rain is on the way:

Look at God!

Go on up to a high mountain, O Zion, herald of good news.
lift up your voice with strength, O Jerusalem, herald of good news.
lift it up, fear not; say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!”
Isaiah 40:9 (ESV)


I am turning a new page, stepping out into the more,
Reaching far beyond anything I have ever thought of.
Beyond anything I have even dared to ask for;
Through Christ, God is able to do exceedingly above,
Way beyond anything my finite mind could ever see.
Recently, God Himself opened the windows of heaven
And poured out a blessing–a miracle crafted for me:
My PSA had skyrocketed to more than ninety,
But within a month, it plummeted to zero point seven.
Nothing is impossible–all things are possible with God.
When we pray, it is no secret what Father God can do.
What He has done for others He can do for me and you.
Behold! The outpouring of the Spirit of the Living God
As we now witness signs, wonders, and miracles: “Look at God!”

But God. . . Look at God!

Here is an excerpt from the book by James Wilkerson:

In this book But God. . . Look at God! I share my testimony of how God touched and transformed my life. I also want to introduce you to some of the people who made a great impact on my life and talk about some of the lessons I have learned. Many times, when God shows Himself strong on my behalf and intervenes in my life to turn what looks like a disaster into a powerful display of His mercy and love, all I can say is, “But God!” When He answers prayer, and it is way beyond my wildest imagination, all I can say is “Look at God!”

To cap off our comments, I recently discovered the perfect music video Sovereign Grace Music together with The Shiloh Church Choir: : “Behold our God!”
