THE ALL-SEEING EYE OF GOD
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*THE ALL-SEEING EYE OF GOD.*
Job 39:28-29 *She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.*
*From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Not only does God place the believer in a vantage position, equipping them with authority and power (Luke 10:19), He wants them to combine these with keen eyesight, Eph 1:18.
God is All-seeing and His All-seeing eyes care and watch over us. The All seeing eyes also see and reveal deep things to us. As God sees so He does allow us to see.
When it comes to seeing as a defence against enemy attacks or to be victorious, God liberally gives this privilege exemplified in every creature kingdom.
In the bird kingdom, the eagle, though not the highest flying bird, remains the only bird that will fly above the storm clouds to avoid the rain. It is able to see ahead and thus soar above the cloud.
From this flying altitude, its keen eyesight allows it to scout for its prey far below.
Its exemplary keen and focused eyesight helps it to see, scout, scan and ultimately devour its enemies.
This distinctive feature is common with every bird that rules the bird kingdom. The same as it is for the bird kingdom so it is for the animal and human kingdom.
The hallmark of the tiger and other dominants in the cat family, is in their sharp eyes detecting their prey from afar.
This vantage feature is behind the strong slogan, the "eye of the tiger": a determined goal achiever.
The spiritual battle against the kingdom of darkness is an unending one. It will not end until Satan is eventually destroyed at the end of age.
To the believer, the battle takes different shapes.
First, it is a battle of winner takes all, a battle of win and overcome the devil or lose and be enslaved by Satan, Rom 8:37, 2 Tim 2:26.
Second, it is a battle we prepare often with the fear of the possibilities of casualties. It is a "kill or be killed" situation, Esther 4:6.
Third, it is not a "win win" battle because we expect the enemy to lose, while we win.
There is nothing we expect the devil to benefit from, 1 John 3;8.
Given the above, the believer's eyes must be focused like the "eye of the tiger".
When we see into the spiritual realm, many battles will be won even before we set out.
The ability of the believer to see into the spiritual is a first major win.
To fail to see ahead is to fail.
Pray God to open your eyes today.
Spiritual blindness may be worse than physical blindness.
*Call to Word action.*
Fixing our eyes on Jesus affords us to see with perfection. Through Him we see, because *"For in him we live, and move, and have our being;....."* Acts 17:28 *
*The Christian clarion duty.*
The world needs those who could see as God sees without which the world will remain in its continued darkness.
The world is in darkness because there are more who are blind spiritually than those who are physically blind or visually impaired.
Lord, help me to see through Your eyes in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
