The Eyes of the Lord
There are so many injustices and inequities in our world. Frightening things, aggravating circumstances and unfair results. Evil seems to triumph. Sometimes it seems that there is little we can do or change. But there is something in which we can take comfort.
God sees it all. And he will triumph and avenge. (Hebrews 10:30)
He knows our plight, our dismay and even our sorrow. We suffer in this world because of man's sin nature. God gave us perfection - man's corrupt desire took it away.
But there is a hope and peace that can come even in the midst of this world. If we bind ourselves to God, trust in him and seek his guidance, wisdom and counsel there is a solace of mind. When we hold back nothing - and bring everything to him in prayer we receive a 'peace that passeth all understanding' (Philippians 4:6-9).
God sees the evil and the good. He sees the righteous and knows our hearts. Be encouraged in this world for we are His children. He goes before us to protect us and he will not fail nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:8). "Our help cometh from the Lord." (Psalm 121:2)
Lift up your eyes to the hills
