Daily Bible Reading: 1 Peter 3
Verse of the Day: 1 Peter 3:12 – “For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous,
And his ears unto their supplication:
But the face of the Lord is upon them that do evil.”
Interesting thoughts expressed in today’s verse. Eyes, ears, and mouth are attributed to God as He observes the world around us – and us.
This says the “eyes” of God are upon the righteous. The term used here can be a metaphor for the eyes of the mind, the faculty of knowing someone. He knows who are righteous. His “ears” is a term that can denote the faculty of perceiving with the mind, the faculty of understanding and knowing. God knows our deepest thoughts and desires in our prayers. Finally, the “face” of the Lord is a term that is used in expressions which denote to regard the person in one's judgment and treatment of men. He stands in judgment of those who are evil.
Prayer: Father, I seek your eyes, ears, and not Your face upon me today and forever.
