You are on His mind!


Several days ago as I was reading Psalms 33, I got hold of the verses 13-15 which say, “From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind; from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth—he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.” It reminded me of my childhood memory.

As children, we were taught that God sees everything we do so be careful of the things we do. In Our Sunday school time, a song was taught to us which says

O be careful little eyes what you see

O be careful little eyes what you see

There’s a Father up above

And He’s looking down in love

So, be careful little eyes what you see.

 As a child, my picture about God was something like this; He is always checking on me: what I do, what I see, where I go, what I speak, what I hear. If I do something wrong, He will be angry with me and punish me. So I was always conscious about what I do. As a child my interpretation of the song made me to think of God as someone who likes punishing people for their wrong doings.

But as I read these verses, they opened up a completely new meaning and understanding for me. There was a time I remember saying to myself that nobody cares for me, nobody sees my problems, nobody notices my hard work or my sincerity or nobody sees my struggles or my tears. In the midst of all these demanding aspects of my life, it was something amazing for me to know that God sees me. He sees my struggles, my tears, my fears, the uncertainty I face, He knows each thought that comes across my mind. He considers everything I do. He is concerned about every aspect of my life. He can see the smile on my face; He also sees each tear that falls; He is delighted to see me happy and He is near to me when I am broken. His eyes are on me and His presence is always with me.

He sees when I sit and when I rise; He perceives my thoughts from afar. He discerns my going out and my laying down. He is familiar with all my ways. (Psalm 139)

Have you ever felt unnoticed, unappreciated, abandoned, lonely and unloved? Have you ever doubted if anyone really cares for you, considers you, or notices your hard work, or applauds you? If so, just wrap yourselves with the beautiful truth of the Word and you can be confident that God sees you.He is near you and He is in control of your life in the midst of whatever challenges life presents.
