The Lord is in His holy temple, The Lord’s throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men. Psalm 11:4 NKJV
God’s eyelids test the sons of men. What does that mean?
God does not have eyes. He does not have eyelids. Does the Lord ever stop searching our hearts? Does He ever stop watching over us and protecting us? Are there things that are hidden from God’s sight?
God never stop searching our hearts. He never stops watching over us. Nothing is ever hidden from the Lord’s sight. Jesus never stops protecting us.
God will allow us to feel like He is not watching over us. We will experience seasons when we feel like He is not protecting us. There will be times when we seek the Lord and feel like He is far from us. We may even think God does not know what we are doing.
When the Lord ushered me into His Kingdom I could not doubt Him. Jesus spoke to me in dreams, through His Word, other people and the circumstances of life. I told people God was alive. It was an amazing season of growing in the Lord.
The Lord is testing us with His eyelids. We are in a season of trial and hardship. My wife suffers from one illness after another. Our sons walked away from the freedom of relationship with Jesus. They surrendered to sin. They are held captive by its grip.
Where is the Lord? He is in His holy temple. His throne is established in Heaven. He reigns supreme over creation. Jesus sees all things. Jesus knows all things.
God searches hearts and minds looking for men and women who believe His Word. He tests people with His eyelids looking for men women and children who choose to walk by faith in Jesus!
Ask Jesus to give you the faith to live for Him today. When the season of testing has ended the Lord will rejoice over you with singing!
I wrote these words seven years ago. Seasons of trial and adversity have come and gone. We frolicked in the joy of restoration when our prodigal returned. Our hearts sang with the joy of the Lord when our son received and returned our love and adoration!
The circumstances of life do not change God’s character, increase His blessings or detract from His loving nature!
The Lord is in His holy temple when the rains fall. He is also there when the sun shines. God’s throne is in heaven regardless of what takes place on planet earth. Jesus sees all things. He knows all things. His eye lids test the sons of men for our good and His glory!
Jesus won the victory over sin and death so that you can be victorious over them! Walk in victory today!
