Verse Of The Day: The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good. Proverbs 15 : 3
LISTEN: God sees all the good and the bad things of this world. He also sees the good and bad people of the world. He is not ignorant of our good and bad works. He is fully aware of all that goes on in this world, though He may choose to keep silent most times. God knows the path everyone of us takes. He is the all-knowing God, hence, nothing is hidden from His pure eyes. Everything is opened to His view, because nothing is a secret to Him. Man have no secret to keep from God because all secrets belongs to Him (Deuteronomy 29 : 29). He is omniscient, therefore, our purposes and intentions are opened to Him. Beloved, do you know that God sees all things? That He knows how we treat Him and others with love or hate? He sees and knows our relationship with others, and our attitudes towards them whether good or bad. God sees all things. He sees deep into our hearts, as a result, He knows our faithfulness to Him, as much as He knows where our hearts lies at all times.
Beloved, does your heart lie with God or the world? Do not think that God is not aware of what you do, or say. He sees everything because our works are naked before Him. The Bible says, “Indeed, what a man does is always in the LORD’s presence, and he weighs all his paths.” (Proverbs 5 : 21). Beloved, let us not deceive ourselves in thinking that God does not see or know what we do. Truly, He takes note of all our actions and works. Therefore, as reasonable people, we should strive to live in line with His will, having known that He will certainly reward everyone according to his or her works. Beloved, as long as you live, just remember that God sees all that we do everyday.
