Proverbs 5:21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
Do you ever get frustrated, irritated, or down right hate it when people stare at you? You are walking down the street or driving along in your car, and you notice someone just staring. I am not even talking about that, “glance and then turn” movement, to make you think they were not looking. I am talking about the person who just drills a hole right through you with a glare in their eyes. For whatever reason, it seems to drive us crazy. Then, almost hypnotically, they have us hooked. We cannot quit looking back at them. Glancing, peeking, and looking to see if they are still looking. Wondering all along, why are they staring? Is it something I am wearing? Did I forget to brush my hair today? Did someone put the “kick me” sign from school back on me again? Or could it possibly be that these people just weird? Why are they looking at me? Are they a rapist or killer? Are they possibly an admirer? We begin to wonder what is going through their mind. It makes us want to run over and say “What is your problem? Why are you looking at me?” You just cannot get them off your mind to quit looking back at them.
The Bible says God is watching our every move. He is staring at us. He is never taking His eyes off us. Now that you know that God is staring, do you wonder or care what He is thinking. Do you realize He is watching? The Bible says He ponders all our goings. Another way of saying it is, watches our every move. If a mortal person who has no control of you can make you look at them just by looking at you, could an almighty all loving God who created and controls the universe do the same thing?
At least we know God is no rapist or murderer. He has no motives to do anything that is not in our best interest. In fact, He is an admirer. He is interested in how we may present ourselves, especially if we claim to be representing Him. However, He is more interested in our heart toward Him. Will you even give Him a second look today? Will you look to Him at all? Whether you look or not, He i’s staring at you.
