Scripture for Today: Psalm 25:15 “My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only he will release my feet from the snare.”

Smart cars, smart phones, and now, smart glasses are becoming more and more commonplace. It seems we need all the gadgets in order to be really smart! Smart glasses free up the hands in doing a task while at the same time, allowing access to a computer. The reflected digital images appear in one’s field of vision but allow the user to see through it. The upshot is, the wearer may seem to be looking at you while in fact seeing something completely unrelated!
Today’s verse reminds us of the importance of keeping our eyes ever on the Lord. When we do, He instructs us in the way to choose (verse 12). With our eyes on the Lord, He relieves the troubles of our hearts and frees us from anguish (verse 17). When we look to Him, He takes care of our sin and our enemies (verses18-19). Having our eyes ever and always on Him means He will rescue us from the snares and traps of the evil one.
It is smart to keep my eyes on the Lord. No one else can do for me what He does! There is no gadget or new invention that can touch my heart and soul. His power, protection and peace are mine when I focus my trust and attention on Him. I dare not trust in man at all whether it be in his wealth, science or technology (Psalm 20:7). I want Jesus to always be in my field of vision. He is the Author and Perfecter of my faith (Heb. 12:2).
Lord, keep me looking to You today.
