Keep Your Eyes Ever on the Lord – My Daily Bread!
Our call to praise is taken from Psalm 25: 10-15, NIV. Here we are encouraged to remember the Lord’s faithfulness and loving kindness to those who fear His name. It speaks to God’s timeless provisions for those who love him and appreciate the blessings of the Lord’s guidance in their lives. The passage reads:
“All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of His covenant. For the sake of your name, O Lord, forgive my iniquity, though it is great. Who, then, is the man that fears the Lord? He will instruct him in the way chosen for him. He will spend his days in prosperity, and his descendants will inherit the land. The Lord confides in those who fear him; He makes His covenant know to them. My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only He will release my feet from the snare.”
The Lord looks to instruct us and develop a deep lasting relationship with those who fear him. But we must seek His guidance, pray for it and ask God to give us the courage to follow it once we understand what it is! Psalm 48:14 tells us “For this is God, Our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even to death.”
So Saints, count your blessings for God’s guidance in your life, for his loving concern for you that never ceases. Keep your eyes ever on the Lord and be confident to say “You will show me the path of life; in your presence is the fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” (Psalm 16:11, NIV)
