About Let Series
LET. Wielded by the Holy Spirit, this tiny word had a huge impact on Martha’s life, and the adventure can be yours, too, if you just LET God be GOD.
Luke 10:39 NLT
Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught.
To ‘look away to Jesus’ is a matter of the heart, not the mind. To love Him is to live in awareness of His thought and purpose, and only love will keep looking, stay sitting, and stare hearing. To love is to gaze. To adore is to concentrate…without effort.
(From Adoration, “The Gaze of the Soul,” p. 121)
The gaze of her inner soul, fixed on Him, held no competing vision. The eye of your soul is not in physical sight.
It is the focus of thoughts, the obsession of the heart…in secret.
