An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Eyes of Love

(Proverbs 16:15 KJV)  In the light of the king's countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.

As I read this today my mind saw The King instead of a king.  Did you ever sing the chorus that went,
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face.
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.
The Holy Spirit was playing with my reading skills today to remind me that it isn’t just me looking at Jesus but Jesus looking at me.  He is watching me.  Since He is God He has the ability to watch you at the same time.  All the time.  There are times when that is comforting and times when it sounds boring.  There are more times when it is a scary thought. 

It is a good thing He loves me and is the expression of I Corinthians 13:4,
(1 Corinthians 13:4 NAS77)  Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,
Since God is love I take that to express how He looks at me.

So?  It is not an excuse to push the envelope but it is a comfort for my many failures.  I remind myself that the king is my Father.
