The Eye of God

Here's a pretty awesome (in the truest sense of the word) photo taken by NASA. Taken with the Hubbell telescope, they captured this image, naming it "The Eye of God".  Makes me think of this Psalm, 33:12-15:

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
    the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 From heaven the Lord looks down
    and sees all mankind;
14 from his dwelling place he watches
    all who live on earth—
15 he who forms the hearts of all,
    who considers everything they do.

Nothing we do or experience escapes His notice. That is once comforting and challenging. Thank you God for the gift of Jesus Christ- the only One who ever lived that paid the price for my sin and the sin of all who give their lives wholeheartedly to Him.

But it gets better. God offers personal involvement in our lives:

"For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him." (2 Chronicles 16:9a.)

Oh, God, not only do you watch everything we do, you watch out and strengthen those who love you. How good you are!

Let me encourage you to consider turning over your life to Jesus. He alone can give you real hope and real forgiveness from your sin. You can live with Him eternally in Heaven versus wasting your life here and perishing in Hell. He sees. He is watching- and He is waiting for you!
