The Eyes Of The Lord

Proverbs 15:3–The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

************************************************************************

The ever present eyes of God–His eyes behold everything in every place.  We can’t hide from God.  He sees what we do and say no matter where we are.  He sees the evil and He sees the good.

1. Proverbs 5:21; Psalms 33:14—The ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord. He watches everyone and the way each lives his / her life. He thinks about us and how we live.

Penetrating eyes–1 Samuel 16:7 tells us that, “The Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart. The eyes of the Lord penetrate to the very depth of our being. Nothing is hid from Him.

Exploring eyes–1 Chronicles tells us that, “The Lord searches all hearts, and understands all the imaginations of the thoughts”.  He knows us better than we know our selves.

Eyes watching over the righteous–Psalm 34:15; 1 Peter 3:12–”The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers”.  His eyes are upon us and His ears are open unto us.  This tells us that He cares and is concerned about the things that are going on in our lives.

1. 2 Chronicles 16:9–”The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him”. He will take action in our lives when we need Him. On our behalf means, that He is there for our benefit, support, and defense. He watches throughout the whole earth.

Finding grace in the eyes of the Lord–Genesis 6:3–”But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord”.  God saw the wickedness in the world in Noah’s day.  He also beheld Noah who was a just man and walked with God.  God watched over Noah and directed him in what he needed to do.  God will do the same for us as we walk with Him and live a life that is pleasing to Him.
