I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

—Psalm 32:8

As children of God, you and I need to be so sensitive to the eyes of God. Do you know what that means? Well, let me share a little perspective with you.  

When Deb and I first got married, forty years ago, I told her, “Get ready because we’re going to spend the rest of our lives in church.” And sure enough, we have. All three of our children grew up in the church. 

As I preached, I would keep my eye on the kids during the service to see if they were behaving. If you have children, you know what I mean. If they became disruptive, they would get what they affectionately refer to today as “the look.” If you’re a parent or grandparent, you know what I mean! Sometimes a glance got things back in order. But if it didn’t, they got a longer look, and then a stare, and maybe even a frown.

You see, because they knew me and I knew them, I could guide them with my eyes. Well our relationship with God is similar. We need to learn to look to God’s eyes for his direction and guidance.

Look for God’s eyes, and stay fixed upon him. And as you look to him, he will direct your steps.

WE NEED TO LEARN TO LOOK TO GOD’S EYES FOR HIS DIRECTION.
