The Eye of the LORD

Printer-Friendly Version

Ayin Adonai -

The Eye of the LORD

Proverbs 29:25 (BHS)

Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him,
upon them that hope in his mercy (Psalm 33:18 KJV).

In the Scriptures, God's intimate knowledge of our lives is sometimes referred to as the "Eye of the Lord." Adonai's eyes are in every place, observing both the good and evil (Prov. 15:3). His eyes focus throughout the whole earth to defend the righteous (2 Chr. 16:9) and to sustain and deliver those who are hoping in His chesed (faithful mercy).

Israel from Space

Sometimes you might feel as if God does not see you or pay attention to your struggle against evil. You may feel insignificant, invisible, unnoticed, perhaps even alienated. This pasuk (verse), however, assures us that God does indeed see you and does indeed attend to the details of your life.

Yes, behold! Look! See and understand this for yourself: The Eye of the Lord God truly is upon you – upon you who are consciously reaching out to Him in reverence of heart; upon you who are feeling alone in your efforts to depart from selfishness and evil; even upon you who despairs over the losses and shame of days wished to be forgotten.

If you are now looking to Adonai in hope of His great mercy, God does indeed see you and is indeed present to deliver you.

Proverbs 29:25 (BHS) Transliterated
