Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: 1st Samuel 29:1- 2nd Samuel 3:39 John 11:55-13:30 Proverbs 15:24-30

“The Eyes of the Lord”

“The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer …”
[1st Peter 3:12]

Write this verse into your heart with firm faith, and see if it does not produce peace and benefits for you. Can you believe that God sits above and does not sleep or look elsewhere and forget you, but with open wide-awake eyes always looks at the righteous who suffer from force and injustice? Why, then, would you complain and become displeased by the harm and wrong that happens to you, when He turns his gracious eyes to you, and as the true Judge and God intends to help you? I would pay all the worlds possessions for this eye of faith. Just as God looks at you with gracious, kind eyes, so also He listens with sharp, open ears to your lamenting, sighing, and praying. He listens willingly and with pleasure, so that as soon as you just open your mouth, He says YES.
