It is difficult for us to comprehend our infinite God. He is a spirit (John 4:24) and does not have a body like ours (Luke 24:39). Yet He has chosen to use words we understand so that we might begin to know Him. One of the figures He employed was to describe His eyes. Look at the following aspects of the eyes of God.
HIS EYES ARE OVER US Peter says, “For the eyes if the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil” (1 Peter 3:12). We may sometimes FEEL like we are alone and no one cares, but nothing could be further from the truth!
HE HAS PROVIDING EYES As Israel was about to enter the promised land, Moses described the land and eyes of God saying, “It is the land your God cared for; the eyes of the Lord your God are continually on it from the beginning of the year to its end” (Deuteronomy 11:12). Jesus shows that He has the same care for Christians today “. . . for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him” (Matthew6:8).
HE HAS JUDGING EYES Jeremiah reminded those of his day of the difference God made between the Israelites and the Egyptians. He had given to each nation what they deserved. Notice his words, “Your yes are open to all the ways of men; You reward everyone according to his conduct and as his deeds deserve” (Jeremiah 32:19). He sees every cup of cold water (Matthew 10:42) and He is aware of every idle (unproductive) word that we say.
HE HAS REMEBERING EYES We often forget that which we see; yet, this is not true of our God. Evil men live as though God is not aware of what they are doing or that He will forget their actions. God showed the folly of such thinking through His messenger, Hosea, “but they do not realize that I remember all their evil deeds. Their sin engulfs them; they are always before me” (Hosea 7:2).
Our God helps us to understand one facet of His nature by telling us of His eyes!!!
