Are you looking?

I am on an adventure through the Bible in a year. Today, I read Genesis 4-7. The thing that impressed me today was Eve. Although part is about Cain and Able, it is Eve's statement after the birth of Seth that intrigues me. She said "For God hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. " Eve was looking for her redemption. She remembered the promise the Lord gave her about her seed. That her seed would bruise the serpent's head. She saw in Seth the qualities she'd seen in Abel. Acceptance by God. The line of her redeemer. The line through which Jesus came.

So today. are you looking? Are you watching for the Redeemer? Do you recognize the acceptable year of the Lord? Are you watching and praying for His return?

Eve recognized the promise even though it was thousands of years away. One thing we do know, Jesus is coming. Whether today, tomorrow or a thousand years from now, are you looking for Him?
