OUR LORD WHO SEES
The scriptures tell of people who declare that God does not see the things they do.
An example is found in Psalm 94 verse 3 - 7. The passage says this;
How long will the wicked, O LORD, how long will the wicked be jubilant?
They pour out arrogant words; all the evildoers are full of boasting.
They crush your people, O LORD; they oppress your inheritance. They slay the widow and the alien; they murder the fatherless.
They say, "The LORD does not see; the God of Jacob pays no heed."
Here, the wicked carry out their deeds boldly, believing and declaring that their actions are not seen by the God of Jacob. They contend that God does not pay attention and does not notice what they do.
In response to those who say that God does not know the deeds that are done, a response is offered a few verses down in Psalm 94 verse 8 - 10.
Take heed, you senseless ones among the people; you fools, when will you become wise?
Does he who implanted the ear not hear? Does he who formed the eye not see?
Does he who disciplines nations not punish? Does he who teaches man lack knowledge?
Here, impeccable logic is used to refute the notion that God does not see, hear, take action or know anything.
Is it concievable the God who formed the eye with its advanced optics and its transducers is Himself unable to see?
Likewise, would the God who planted the ear with its audiological engineering and transducers be Himself unable to hear?
Relating to the responsiveness of God, is not the one who disciplines nations unable to intervene in history to assert corrective action. Would such a God be passive in the face of injustice?
Would the God who formed the mind of man to be teachable with knowledge be Himself unable to know anything?
In fact, it is completely the opposite. God's senses are hyper-senses.
Not only does God see us, He sees the innermost thoughts, attitudes and motives of our hearts.
Not only only does God hear us, every careless word we utter is heard by Him and from afar off, He hears the repentant cry of those who, out of remorse, cannot bring themselves to approach the presence of God.
Not only does God respond to our actions, He actively directs our steps and turns all things for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purposes. Those who are not called are still continually draw towards God until the threshold is reached where God will no longer strive with a man. God is active in His pursuit of the redemption of mankind.
Not only does God know our actions, he knows every hair on our heads and know the thoughts formed in our minds before we speak them.
The Lord our God sees us, hears us, responds to us and knows us.
Let us draw near to Him for the scriptures tell us He will reciprocate and draw near to us.
