Are Your Eyes Fixed On God?

“Keep your eyes on the Lord! You will shine like the sun and never blush with shame. I was a nobody, but I prayed, and the Lord saved me from all my troubles.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34:5-6‬ ‭CEV‬‬

My husband and I went to the Exploratorium in San Francisco this week. One of the exhibits that caught my attention was titled, All Eyes On Me 👀. It was a board with several circular mirrors and one right in the center. The instructions read, close one eye, and with your opened eye stare directly at the mirror in the middle. Wow! In just a few seconds all eyes are on you. I immediately thought, this is how our sinful nature works. When we are focused on ourselves, it produces selfish desires that separates us from God. The Bible says keep our eyes on the Lord and we will shine for him. Prayer and reading His Word is the glue that keeps our eyes fixed on Him.

Praise God for opening our eyes to see him everywhere we go.
