DCLM Sincere Milk 5 February 2023 Devotional by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — God’s eyes are on you always
TOPIC: GOD’S EYES ARE ON YOU ALWAYS.
TEXT: PSALM 139:7-12
7Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
8If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
9If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
10Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
11If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
12Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
“Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?” (PSALM 139:7)
God sees everyone, every time and everywhere – He is Omnipresent. Even when it looks like everything is dark and hopeless, God knows about it. The three Hebrew youngsters – Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego proved it when the king of Babylon threw them into a burning fiery furnace. They had been told to bow to a golden image or be thrown into a huge fire made at the king’s order. They chose the fire instead of bowing to the image. They were not consumed by the fire because God was with them.
Daniel also was told not to pray to the God of heaven but to make requests from the earthly King Nebuchadnezzar. He chose to pray to God while the windows of his house were opened. In annoyance at his disobedience, the king ordered that Daniel be thrown into the lion’s den and it was done. He was however, not hurt by the ferocious animals – God’s eyes were on Daniel and the lions became his friend instead of hurting him.
As God is watching over you so no harm can come upon you because He is jealously guarding you so also He sees any evil you may plan to do.
Do not think, plan or do evil; avoid all forms of sin and unholy actions and associations. God will continue to keep His protective eyes on you. Remember that God’s eyes are on you always, do not join a multitude to do evil.
FURTHER READING: Luke 8:17
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord, please help me keep trusting that Your eyes are on me always.
1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
