The Eyes of the Lord

The second name of God in the study that Jill is leading is El Roi, God Who Sees. I looked up "the eyes of God" in the Bible, and here are a few of the verses.

2Ch 16:9 -
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

Ps 11:4 -
The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD'S throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.

Ps 34:15 -
The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.

Pr 5:21 -
For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.

Pr 15:3 -
The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

Am 9:8 -
Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD.

Zec 4:10 -
For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

1Pe 3:12 -
For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

Thank God His ears are always open to our cries, and His eyes are on us. He is our awesome God.

Blessings Cathy...YEAHHHH! Beautifully illustrated and such wonderful scriptures!

I'm so thankful that God sees me and His eyes are upon me! So glad that you shared the eyes of the LORD and joined us in this study. I love the verse from 2 Chronicles! That's how I know that God cares for me all the way from MN to MX.

May EL ROI keep His eyes on you and continue to hear your heart and your cries for your loved ones & you!
