The Eyes of God

“For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with God), and His ears are attentive to their prayer…”
(1 Peter 3:12, AMP)

  1. ”This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that He hears us then we have confidence that we have the petitions we ask for.”
    Then must we assume that if we have not requested according to His will we supposedly will NOT receive what we have petitioned Him for?
    Perhaps this is so…. for the righteous, in right relationship with the Father and the Son….Well, He watches over His word to perform it. However, if we ask amiss, or presumptuously, AND because His perfect will is so much higher than ours that in certain situations , we can learn to rejoice when He answers us totally differently than we had hoped for. Rejoice….For He is a good GOD. Holy, righteous, perfect, loving….never leaving us or forsaking us and He wants only what is the very best for us. If I could just learn to get out of His way and let Him lead me, my prayers by the Holy Spirit…….. But that’s another prayer!

  2. Thoughts I had regarding…since “The LORD’s eyes scan the whole world to find those whose hearts are committed to him and to strengthen them” (2 Chronicles 16:9), then if His eyes stop “upon the righteous”, His strength must be very powerful towards them. Also, if His eye is fixed upon a righteous person, then that person must have great favor and protection for…”Whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye. “

  3. I love sitting in peace and looking upon God’s face and knowing that He has ears for no one but me at the moment. Sometimes his response to me is very confusing.

  4. Maybe the moon is the Lords sunglasses and the sun His reading glasses. They seem to be mirrored lenses so you and me can both be seen! Hey, we show much beauty coming from His eyes.
