CrossProv. 15:3 The LORD is watching everywhere, keeping his eye on both the evil and the good.

How does this truth make you feel? The Lord is watching everywhere; everywhere you go the Lord knows about it. He is aware of what you are doing at all times. He knows everything about you, inside and out. He knows when you do good and when you do evil. You do not get away with anything. How does that make you feel? Are you okay with it, or does it concern you?

You cannot hide from the watchful eye of the Lord. This is why we can’t let down our guard and assume anything. We must keep vigilant watch over our souls. The Lord will not accept our excuses for sinning. He cannot be fooled and we cannot hide anything from Him.

We cannot understand how the Lord is able to single us out of all the masses of people in time and space and know what is going on with us. All we know is that He can. Such knowledge comforts, challenges, and concerns us. He has His eye on both the evil and good. He knows. He knows what no one else knows. In our innermost secret places He knows whether or not evil or good has a hold of us.

The Lord is watching and sees the evil and good in the world. He is not surprised by the things that surprise us. He has all things under control and will make all things right when the time is right. No one is going to escape His judgment. Justice may not seem to be accomplished here on earth, but it is done in heaven. Do not let the evil of the world throw you. God is on the throne and Judgment Day is coming.

The Lord is watching you. Are you living a life that pleases Him? Do you put a smile or a frown on His face?

Before and After the Honeymoon

About the Author:

Jim HughesSpending his formative years in Ft. Wayne, IN, Jim followed the love of his life to southeast Iowa where they married and have spent the majority of their lives. Jim has pastored several churches throughout his life and has worked many years in local factories to help support his family. The father of two married adult children and one son still at home, Jim is a first-time author.

C Through Marriage came into being through many years of pastoral and life experiences. The book first took on a life of its own over 20 years ago when I sought to address the much publicized moral failures of prominent leaders in the church. In the chapter on Chasity, I include the guideliness that I developed then to protect one’s self from such failures.

I am a firm believer in order to make sense out of life you have to use much common sense. We need to get back to the basics of what has worked for many, many generations. If is isn’t broke, why try to fix it? I strive to return to the basics of what really works in all my writings.
