This is a year when God call us to learn Bible Verses About the Eyes of God. And to be His witness and to see through God’s eyes. In Bible this is often interpreted as the “heart of God” rather than a physical attribute. It can also mean “knowledge” (Hebrews H5869). Let us examine the world through the lens of heart-knowledge. Through God’s eyes.

Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you. (1 Corinthians 1:26 NLT)
Do you see hurting people through God’s eyes? Think about the people who trust you enough to ask for prayer. They share intimate stories of hurt, betrayal, fear or loss. These are the people God sees.
When you look at the prayers through the eyes of God…you understand the incredible love God feels for His children? May the knowledge and heart of God help you see His:
- Pain for their suffering
- Pain for their hurt
- Pain for their fear
- Pain for their betrayal
- Pain for their sin
Through the eyes of God, so much pain. He sees and He cares, so He sent Jesus to earth. His own Son.
God knows we are desperate children and He shows His unyielding love. God knows His children are lost…and like any loving parent…He will seek His children to the ends of the earth until they are found. He helps the become forgiving and forgiven.
- When you seek comfort… do you look for food or addictions?
- When you seek strength… do you call on your friends?
- When you seek healing…. do you read the latest self-help books?
- When you seek courage… do you look for revenge?
- When you seek pride… do you align with the worldviews?
God sees His children…and He sees them reject and turn away from His healing love, His comfort and His strength.
Yet He patiently waits for His children. He is the life…the air that we need to breathe….. quiet time with God.
May the Presence of the Father and the eyes of God live inside you.
God loves His children.
