The All-Seeing Eye of God by Jody W. Durham

The All-Seeing Eye of God
The first line and chorus of an old hymn by R.E. Winsett reads 
thusly... 

All along on the road to the soul's true abode, 
There's an Eye watching you. 
Every step that you take this great Eye is awake, 
There's an Eye watching you. 
Watching you, watching you, 
Everyday mind the course you pursue; 
Watching you, watching you,  
There's an all-seeing Eye watching you.   

As a young boy this hymn had a profound impact upon me.  I knew 
that if I did something bad, even if no one ever found out, God knew,
for He is always watching me.  Oftentimes this knowledge prevented me
from doing wrong simply because I didn't want to disappoint God. 
Later, for a few months in my early adulthood, I chose a path that was
not good (Psalm 36:4).   I was in the Navy and thousands of miles from
those to whom I had once been accountable (Luke 15:13).  For a while I
"sowed my wild oats."  But I never forgot that God was always watching
me, and finally I let Him turn my life back around. 

The all-seeing Eye of God is a deterrent from sin.  The consequences 
of sin will always come back around to haunt the sinner.  We are 
warned in Numbers 32:23, "...be sure your sin will find you out."  
Truly, "...God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward 
appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart" (1 Samuel 16:7).  Yes, 
He is indeed the great "heart-searcher" (1 Chronicles 28:9; Jeremiah 
17:10; Revelation 2:23)!  Perhaps the Hebrew writer said it best:  
"...there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are 
open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do" 
(Hebrews 4:13). 

But we need not fear God's omniscience, if we allow His will to govern
our lives.  We need not think of God as a suspicious and ruthless
taskmaster eagerly waiting to catch us in a fault.  The all-seeing Eye
of God is neutral... He sees the good as well as the bad.  What He
sees depends upon what we display before Him!  Solomon said it well,
"The eyes of the LORD are in every place, Watching the evil and the
good" (Proverbs 15:3).  

The Chronicler wrote, "the eyes of the LORD
move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support
those whose heart is completely His" (2 Chronicles 16:9).  This verse
teaches us that the all-seeing Eye of God offers encouragement and
strength!  His eyes look for truth (Jeremiah 5:3).  The pious soul
does his good deeds quietly, humbly... realizing that "the Father who
sees in secret will repay" (Matthew 6:4, 6, 18).  In Luke 18:9-14,
Jesus tells a parable of a hypocritical Pharisee whose arrogant,
self-righteous prayer was designed to draw the attention of men. 
Jesus then tells of the humble tax-gatherer pouring out his penitent
soul before God.  Perhaps only a very few saw the tax-gatherer as he
cast his burden upon God's throne... but the all-seeing eye of God
pierced through to his heart, and he went away justified.

The all-seeing eye of God offers hope and protection!  Persecution 
will inevitably come upon the godly (2 Timothy 3:12).  Yet we have 
the undying promise of the Father who loves us dearly, "... for He 
Himself has said, "I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake 
you," so that we confidently say, "The Lord is my helper, I will not 
be afraid. What shall man do to me?"  A crown of life awaits the 
faithful one who endures (Revelation 2:10).  Yes, His eye is on the 
sparrow, and not a single hair of our head escapes His notice 
(Matthew 10:28-29)!    

May we ever be mindful of, and thankful for, the all-seeing Eye 
of God!!!
