"My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will
release my feet from the snare."
The love of God is so immense, so vast, so deep that He does not allow us to remain in our sin. Any parent who has taught a child right from wrong again and again understands this.
David writes that his “eyes are ever on the Lord.” I know when my eyes drift off of Him and onto my own self, I am likely to be caught in my sin. I’m like the guilty little child who will not look at mommy though she says, “Look at me!” Remember when Peter took his eyes off of Jesus as he walked on the water? As soon as Peter focused on the wind and his fear, he began to sink. When his eyes were on Jesus, the frightful circumstances of the storm were irrelevant.
This world can make us feel as if our feet are caught in a snare. If your feet are trapped, you fall down and struggle to get up. But the next time you’ve fallen down, take advantage of the position of a contrite soul. Repent of trying to fix things on your own and of forgetting to look up. Then rest in the love of Jesus whose blood covered over all
DO YOU ALLOW JESUS TO TEACH YOUR HEART? MOVE YOUR EYES TOWARDS JESUS AND LIVE WITH YOUR FACE LIFTED TO HIM.
