God’s Eyes of Love

Did you know your eyes focus on 50 different objects every second and the only organ more complex than the eye is the brain?

Your eyes can distinguish approximately 10 million different colors and 80 percent of all learning comes through the eyes. The human eye is fascinating and Incredible but not supernatural. Only God has supernatural eyes. Able to see our hearts, our intentions, our potential and our destiny.

Sadly, in our fallen world, God sees a lot of awful things. His eyes see violence, hunger, fear and sickness. He sees unmet expectations, broken hearts and crushed dreams. He sees wasted potential and broken relationships. He sees needless destruction, forces of weather, nightmares and loss of hope. God’s eyes see all the destruction sin has wrecked upon our personal lives, the lives of our loved ones and the earth itself. 

In the midst of all that, He sees you. He sees you doing your best as you walk out this human life. He sees your sacrifices, He watches you turn the other cheek, He sees you bite your tongue, He sees you take the high road, again. He sees you be humble when you could be prideful. He sees you be kind instead of judgmental. He sees when you are misunderstood. He sees the time you spend serving others when you could be home relaxing. He sees your tired feet and aching back. He sees.

The Bible Says God Sees Us

Psalm 33:13-18, “From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind; from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth — he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.”

Psalm 34:15, “The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right; his ears are open to their cries for help.”

2 Chronicles 16:9a “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”

He sees and He responds! He watches over you, He opens His ears to your prayers, He strengthens you. To have the God of the universe open to your thoughts and prayers, and to want to strengthen you is no small thing. He who came here to earth to live among us, smell our smells, walk on our dirt, travel our roads and cry our tears. This is a God who sees with love.

You Can Talk to God

The next time you are carrying a heavy burden, feeling the weight of a tough decision, tempted deeply, hurt badly, His eyes of love are upon you to help, listen and strengthen. Say, “God you see me! Hear my cry of help, give me the strength I need to keep going.”

Whatever is going on in your life, you have a God who sees you. He is a God who loves you and died for you and sees you, even when nobody else does.
