Today on a country station on the radio, I heard a popular song called, “Eyes On You,” by Chase Rice. It’s a beautiful song with the line, “No matter where we go, no matter what we do, If you’re there, girl, I’ve got my eyes on you.” While that’s a line that would make any girl swoon when her fellow says it, do we feel that way? Do you want someone watching you all the time?
Young children love to have their parents, “Watch me!” It may start on the playground, but stadiums, gymnasiums, concert halls, and auditoriums are full of families who are there to “watch” their young ones perform. While children want adults to watch when they are doing something well, they aren’t so excited when they are caught doing something wrong. My girls still swear that there were times that they believed that I really did have “eyes in the back of my head,” when they were getting into trouble in the back seat.
You know, we as adults, are about the same. We find the verses, “I will never leave you nor forsake you,” (Hebrews 13:5) and “Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world,” (Matthew 28:20) very comforting, when we are feeling lost and alone. We want Him watching, when we need Him. But, do we always want Him watching us? Proverbs 15:3 says, “the eyes of the Lord are in every place, watching the evil and the good.” He truly “knows when we’ve been bad or good.” “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight; but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do (to give an account.)” (Hebrews 4:13) He sees all and knows all.
May we live our lives in such a way that we’re always proudly saying, “Watch me, Lord!” God Bless, Courtney
