The Eyes of the Lord

Psa 34:15

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry;

 

 

What a comforting verse.  The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous.  Who are the righteous?  The righteous are those who are covered in the blood of God’s Son, Jesus.  Imagine the eyes of God are on me.  He sees me all the time.  There is nothing I can do that is hidden from his eyes.  This fact broke my old habit of going over the speed limit when no others were on the road.  Maybe a policeman wouldn’t see me, but God does and He says to obey the laws of the land.  Imagine, also, His ears are always hearing us.  I want whatever He hears coming out of my mouth to be pleasing to Him.  This is making me learn to think before I talk.  I love this verse.  It is comforting and it is challenging.  It keeps me mindful that I am accountable to God.
