Their eyes have lusted after their idols
God would punish Israel with sword, famine and plague (v11) because their eyes have lusted after their idols (v10). God love them, and desire them to love Him back. He wanted them to know He is Yahweh, the God who rescue them out of Egypt. Any other gods are idols.
Now examine ourselves, in which area in our life where our eyes are lusting after our idols? Are we trying to satisfy our soul by lusting after of the world?
“When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus” (Matt 17:8). Let’s turn our eyes away from our idols, and look up to Jesus and Jesus only. There is no way to know Jesus if we spend our time and our thought lusting after the world. Come to Him today, He alone will truly satisfy all our deepest, inner needs.Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
