Today, we have so many people telling us what is best for us – from the best detergent to wash your clothes with to the best universities to attend, the best jobs to have, the best car to drive, the best place tol live in, etc. Advice is everywhere. Some people look to the stars in the cosmos to read their future and other look at the stars on the silver screen to duplicate their lives after. People spend countless amounts of money paying people to tell them what to do.
When you want advice and direction in life, it only makes sense to turn to the one who the Creator, the Designer of the object – the One who knows you so thoroughly that that there is not a thing that you do or will do or even think of doing that He does not know. Actually, when you think of this fact – that the Lord God knows all that there is to know about you, does it not make you wonder at the goodness of God. That He would consider to even think of one such as me! No wonder the Psalmist says in Psalms 8, “When I consider the heavens the work of Thy fingers, what is man that Thou art mindful of him and the son of man that Thou considerest him?” He does know all about you and me. And if you were wise, the best thing that you can do is to pay attention to what He says. After all He is the Only Wise and to listen and pay attention and do as He says is true wisdom. Psalm 32:8 says “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye”. The ESV translation reads “I will counsel you with my eye upon you.” The “I” is the Lord God speaking. This is specialized instruction fitted for each individual. He will guide you while He is watching over you. How incredible is that. This is the God that we serve. You are special. God says that our every tear which we have shed, He holds in a bottle. He counts the very hairs of our head. But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in His unfailing love. Psalm 33:15. With His eye upon us, He will guide us, direct our steps and lead us into Life everlasting,
