MM Meditation - Look to the Sky!

My son called from outside a few nights ago,
"Mom, come out here now!
Look at the sky!"

Immediately I thought of the little ditty,

"Red at night, sailors' delight.
Red in morning, sailors take warning."

Even in Bible times, people knew this simple way to forecast weather.

In fact, the Lord Jesus used this little ditty
to chastise the unbelievers of the day.

Matthew 16:
1 Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came,
and testing Him asked that He would show them a sign from heaven.
2 He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say,
‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’;
3 and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today,
for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites!
You know how to discern the face of the sky,
but you cannot discern the signs of the times.
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign,
and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.”
And He left them and departed.

They refused to believe the prophetic "signs" from John the Baptist.

They watched Old Testament prophecies fulfilled before their very eyes
 by the Messiah but still wouldn't believe.

The Lord still asks us only to believe.

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please Him,
for he who comes to God must believe that He is,
and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

We look to the sky,
but not for signs
but for His soon return.

As we watch,
in faith.

Look to the sky...
Revelation 22:20
Even so, come, Lord Jesus!



  1. Great post! This is something God has really been working on me this year. True belief in what He is capable of through my pitiful efforts. He is so able!

  2. do you ever stand out side, looking to the sky, wishing the trumpets would just go ahead and sound? I do...a lot!

  3. Beautiful pic. Beautiful message!
    My Dad was a sailor...I rememebr him saying that.

  4. Looking for that blessed hope and that glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ Titus 2:13
