“…I will guide you with My eye.”
Ps. 32:8: “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”
By faith I look to your eyes this morning, Lord,
May I receive your love, your correction, your guidance.
May my eyes be ever toward you, Lord, Ps. 25:15.
Teach me, Lord, the way I should go — my next step. Amen.
The eyes of my God are upon me, guiding me,
Though I am but a speck of dust, O Lord.
May this awareness keep me in godly fear,
And thankful for Your mercy, Ps.33: 18.
“I will instruct you and teach you…”
Lord, I wait for your instruction; speak to me.
Lord, I wait for your teaching; teach me.
Guide me in the way I should walk by faith. Amen.
● “guide you with My eye,” means: He will counsel you; His eyes shall be upon you.
● The eyes mirror the heart; when we look to God’s eyes, we have fellowship with God. We learn this as we live a life of prayer — prayer of the heart.
● 2 Chr. 16:9: “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal.” [loyal means: blameless]. May my heart abide in godly fear, Lord, and be found blameless before you. Amen.
“Lead, Kindly Light, amidst th’ encircling gloom,
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home,
Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.” — John Henry Newman 1801 – 1890
Quote: “When we want to know God’s will there are three things which always concur: the inward impulse, the Word of God, and the trend of circumstances! God in the heart, impelling you forward; God in the Book, corroborating whatever He says in the heart; and God in circumstances, which are always indicative of His will. Never start until these three things agree. Stand still at the cross-roads ready to walk or run, and you will not be kept waiting long.”
Patience Strong, quoted in Springs in the Valley
Testimony: As I grow older, I have greater need to keep looking to the Lord for His guidance constantly. The more I look to the Lord, the less mistakes I make, and the less stress I come under. I commit myself to God’s keeping as soon as I wake up in the morning. Recently when I was under stress, I found Ps. 142 most helpful, especially verse 3: “When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then You knew my path…”
Memory Verse – Rom. 8:14: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.”
