My Eyes Are on You, God

 

psalm 139 23
 Do your eyes wonder? Do your thoughts make you ashamed? Do you think, maybe, you are not worthy? Then you are human, imperfect, and filled with doubt. That’s Ok. Because as long as we take a breath, as long as we live in this world, our lives will be filled with all the above.

 However, there is an answer to our daily struggles, God. If we keep our eyes on him, he will help us through each day. He will remind us not to wonder, not to be ashamed, and not to feel unworthy. You see, the adversary wants us to feel that way so we can take our eyes of God. Don’t let him win.

 Keep your eyes on God

Every day, when I wake up, I wonder what kind of day I am going to have. I wonder if I am going to make it through the day. If I am going to be worthy of God’s grace or if I am going to fail miserably. The truth is that by keeping my eyes on God, I will have the best day possible.

Keep your thoughts on God

 When I feel my thoughts attacking me, I think of God and how he works in my life. I read a passage in the bible, or I pray for help in keeping my thoughts on him. I will not allow the adversary to win.

 Feel God’s presence in your life

 When I take a breath, I feel God’s presence. He gave me the air to breath and the lungs to breathe with. When I open my eyes, I see his masterpiece surrounding my life. The wonders of God are all around us. Each marvel brings a thought of his amazing powers.

 If you feel as if you are wondering about life, then do so with God by your side. Let him help you find your way, let him fill your thoughts, and let him remind you that you were worth dying for. He gave us his son Jesus. Why would he not give you a good day?

 Exodus 33

 14 And the Lord said, “My presence will go with you”

 Psalm 139

23 Examine me, and probe my thoughts Test me, and know my concerns!

 Mark 12

11 This is from the Lord, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?

Honor, Obey, and Love

Ephesians 6

1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord for this is right.

2 “Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment accompanied by a promise, namely, 

3 “that it may go well with you and that you will live a long time on the earth.”

Most of us regain our respect for our parents after we become parents ourselves. It is unfortunate. If as children or teens, we made a point of listening to them, we may very well avoid much heartache. Although, parents come across as strict, not understanding of our situation, the truth is they have our best interest at heart.

Honor your father and Mother

In order to honor our parents, we must conduct ourselves with respect. We must treat others in a way that shows caring, understanding, and love. We must revere them. We must not act in a way that would be an embarrassment to ourselves and to them.

Obey your parents

We may not want to listen to our parents; however, their advice is wise and knowledgeable. They were our age in the past. They have experienced many of the situations we will, as well. Their wisdom surpasses our age-appropriate foolishness, and can keep us from harm.

Love your Parents

We all love our parents; however, we must show them love. We must let them know how we feel about them. We must be loving when we reference them. We must uphold a loving attitude towards them.  We should do so in speech and action.

If we honor, obey, and love our parents, the Bible teaches us, “we will live a long time on the earth.” We will have years added to our longevity. We will follow their example, as to obedience and respect for God. We will absorb our teachings and learn lessons.
