Always Watching

Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.

All we think and do is known and seen by God. There is no such thing as a secret sin. We delude ourselves when we think we are not accountable for what we think as long as we don’t act on it. When a bad thought, a thought outside of the characteristics of God listed in 1 Corinthians 13 comes into our head, we must capture it and toss it out. Dwelling on such thoughts leads to action. This truth is seen in our thinking of a certain food item. As we dwell on that thought the desire to eat that food becomes stronger and stronger until we give in to it and satisfy that desire. Let us remember we are accountable for what we think and be sure to purge thoughts quickly. This includes thoughts that are negative about ourselves. If we are important, special and loved by God, who are we not to agree with Him? As His eyes are always keeping watch on us, let us learn to keep our eyes on Him.
