Spurgeon remembered clearly the day that a word was spoken into his heart to cause change. The speaker was not eloquent or even learned. It went something like this.
This was the text:

Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. (Isaiah 45:22, KJV)

The speaker spoke words like this.

“It says look. Looking doesn’t take a lot of pain. A man needn’t go to college to learn how to look. Anyone can look. Even a child can look. The trouble is too many of you are looking at yourself, and there is no use looking there.”

Then in the midst of the preacher’s sermon, he looked down at Spurgeon and said, “You will always be miserable in life and in death if you don’t obey my text. Look to Jesus Christ young man. Look, look, look! You have nothing to do but to look and live!”

Might I ask “Do you remember the day of your salvation? If you haven’t had one yet, the truth still applies.

Prayer- Open our eyes, Lord, that in our looking we might truly find you. Amen.
