Someone came to me with a question of whether we should obey the Scriptures, even if it required losing our life in doing so. This question reminded me of Peter’s words to believers who were suffering for their faith in Christ.
“For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil”” (1 Peter 3:12).
It is more common for most of us who pass through trials of severe difficulty to forget that “the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous.” In fact, we are never out of His watchful eye. Remember Psalm 139:7-12. It does not matter where we are in this universe, “even there [the Lord’s] hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me” (10). How comforting to the mind and heart!
There is more! If we utter the smallest prayer, “His ears are open to their prayer.” David was absolutely confident that the Lord heard his prayers (Psalm 5:3; 17:6 and others). Are you confident that the Lord hears your prayers? If you are in Christ, you have been clothed with the righteousness of Christ and His eye is on you and He hears your prayer.
If your obedience to the Lord and His word required the ultimate sacrifice, be assured the eye of the Lord is on you and He will see you through to the end.
