Scripture: The Lord Looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men. (Psalm 33:13)
Devotional: Perhaps no figure of speech represents God in a more gracious light than when He is spoken of as stooping from His throne and coming down from heaven to attend to the wants and to behold the woes of mankind.
We cannot help pouring out our heart in affection for our Lord who inclines His ear from the highest glory and puts it to the lip of the dying sinner whose failing heart longs after reconciliation. How can we but love Him when we know that He numbers the very hairs of our heads, marks our paths, and orders our ways?
Especially is this great truth brought near to our heart when we recollect how attentive He is, not merely to the temporal interests of His creatures but to their spiritual concerns. Though leagues of distance lie between the finite creature and the infinite creator, yet there are links uniting both. When a tear is wept by you, do not think that God does not behold; for “Like as a father pities his children, so the Lord pities them who fear Him.” Your sigh is able to move the heart of Jehovah, your whisper can incline His ear unto you, your prayer can stay His hand, your faith can move His arm.
Do not think that God sits on high taking no account of you. For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him. (Charles Spurgeon, Strengthen My Spirit).
Prayer: Father we give you praise and thanks for all the ways that you protect and provide for the needs of your children. May you power reign supreme in our lives. We pray that your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus name we pray, always. Amen.
