BEHOLD, THE EYE OF THE LORD
Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; *To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Psalm 33:18-19
Who are you looking up to? Judging with the intense pains you are going through, talking about your ridiculous life of emptiness, the failures and un-accomplishment all round you, death, imprisonment, calamities or catastrophe in sight; who are you looking up to? Can you boast that you will come out of all these. Will your imagination of being delivered come true? Are you sure this sickness will not kill you seeing others gone by it, are you very sure you will make it? ‘OK’ If you are sure; this will be a recipe for your quick recovery (and deliverance) but if not this edition of Voices From Zion will surely bring you out, no matter how close death is on your life, no matter the level of your emptiness; you will be filled, no matter the devil’s act upon your life, you will have testimony, on this note I welcome you into this way out today, simply titled BEHOLD, THE EYE OF THE LORD.
The Eye Of The Lord: we are told that God made man in his own image and that also means that God have all the part that he has created in human. More so when Jesus came to this earth, he came as man not as a formless spirit. Our God has hands, eyes, legs, nose and every other part. Genesis 1:26-27, John 1:1-5, 14 Philippians 2:6-11,Genesis 1:26-27And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. *So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Psalm 94:7-9 Yet they say, The Lord shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it. *Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise? * He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
Psalm 139:15-16 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. *Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
God has good and glistering eyes but on the other side of the coin the devil has a very bad sight and that’s the reason why he could afflict people with all kinds of eye problems because he has it himself. The account in the Bible shows that the devil does not leave the heavens with completeness, he was ejected, fought against and threw down here to wander about. I believed the devil can also see, smell, hear and do other things but not perfectly because he would have being injured. I pray for you today, that the devil shall not be able to perceive any good thing in your life anymore in Jesus name. Rev 12:7-9 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, *And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. *And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Isaiah 14:7-17…How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! * For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: *I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. * Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. * They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; * That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?
The Quality Of The Eye Of The Lord: human eyes sees physical things and could do nothing or little about whatever they see. You can see aircraft crashing but what can you do as one man to stop it from crashing at that very time. You can see all kinds of things with your eyes even in the abstract (or dreams) but you could do little or nothing about them.
Here is the Lord of Host who sees all things, in heaven, on earth and underneath the earth. God’s eyes see all things at the same time. You will be glad that God sees what your enemies are doing against you, infact the psalmist exclaimed and said Psalm 74:18-23 Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O Lord, and that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name. *O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever. *Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty. *O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name. *Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily. *Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually.
Exodus 3:7 And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;
One good thing about the eye of the Lord is that he could see all your afflictions and send you help. As you keep reading this Voices From Zion the help of God will surely locate you in Jesus name. Most individuals and some congregations have concluded that God doesn’t care about them, and that’s the reason for them being destroyed and eating up in their calamities; despite their prayers! May be you are also fighting some battles that you have done all you know how to do but no positive changes. The good news is that, it is not what you do now that will bring you out but what you have been doing or what you will start doing from now on. ‘OK’ please note that there are some set of people that God’s eye is always upon them and that is why such one can not be killed by sickness, imprisonment or be terminated by accident. No matter the holocaust in sight, they will always be vindicated because they always:
Fear The Lord: Any man that hook up to God Almighty and keeps his commandment and deal well with others has good conscience and fear the Lord. 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. And that was the reason the eye of the Lord kept him all through the terrible afflictions of Satan. The fear of the Lord is not a gift but a choice.
The fear of the Lord will empower you to live a sanctified life; it keeps any man with God and makes a man continued with God after his earthly journey. Your life in God is most important. Note that most noble positions on earth are vacant because God is looking for someone that fears him to be positioned. The fear of the Lord can take you beyond your widest imagination. Genesis 39:1-4, 9-12, 41:39-45. Some men prayed, fasted and yet they are not heard because they need to
Hope In His Mercy: Many failed to realize their fault in the battle. For instance If you lay with an harlot and contract deadly disease, only the mercy of God can get you out of it, if you kill and you are caught only the mercy of God will get you out of it. Greediness kills and stagnate, if you refuse to realize your errors you can’t command his mercy, you need a change of mind for you to step up and be help by God. Hope here also borders on faith Hebrew 11:1, 6 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. *But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Without Hoping in his mercy you are totally doomed if that’s the main step needed to be taken by you. Without you hoping in his mercy you are totally doom as the main step you needed to take is: BEHOLD, THE EYE OF THE LORD. More often than not, the two major challenges that no fellow man can solve are the issues of death and famine.
Letter to the dying
God is here to bring you out of this deadly situation. He has done it before and he’s here
to do it in your life. You shall not die, if you can believe God your creator, healer and deliverer.
God can elongate your life in health and prosperity, and still bring you to himself in a good old age.
If you want God to bring you out then look up to him. Look at his eyes and receive your healing,
stand up and keep looking up to him.
As long as you are beholding the eyes of the Lord you will not be down because Psalm 34:5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
Letter To The Bankrupt
My dear, death is not the solution to this your problem. God is here to help you, he’s God and has
brought you enough money to cancel your debts (and losses). He’s mindful of you. God was
showing you signal of this impending danger but you couldn’t catch it. He’s here to help you.
Simply bow your knees before him and look up to him only and the flood will not overrun you.
To everyone out there, God sees you in your calamities and trials but until you behold his eyes, you
will remain helpless. Philippians 4:19, 2Corinthians 8:9, Matthew 11:28, Psalm 33:18-19
