“Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord…” (Psalms 25: 15)
This perspective is one that will give us a clear vision. Keeping our eyes—our spiritual perception and focus—toward God, will always lead us to Truth, to satisfaction, to what is right and loving and good.
The psalmist knew that when he was looking away from God and conscious of circumstances, the actions of man, and sense testimony, he would miss out on what was real and righteous. He would be turning away from the vital thoughts and guidance that would make him feel confident, peaceful, and free.
Keeping our eyes toward the Lord (and redirecting them there when they get misled and distracted) keeps us looking into the face of goodness, Love, and to the very reality of our own life, as it truly is, not as the human senses might lead us to believe. In God are infinite and gracious possibilities. There is assurance and approval and the most honest view of ourselves.
God is the one true Mind and Life. He is our faithful and wise guide in all things, and we are His image. So when we look to God; when we see the qualities that divine Love must naturally express, we are able to have our eyes naturally opened to just who we truly are, and to just why God’s eyes are ever and lovingly toward us.
