The scripture for today is Proverbs 15:3
Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
God has three qualities that set Him apart from any other being. He is omnipresent – God is everywhere; He is omniscient – God knows all things; He is omnipotent – God is all-powerful.
The qualities of God are governed by His character. God is love, and everything that flows from His heart flows from the love imperative that defines who God is. Even those who oppose God and reject His love for them should be happy to know that God is love. If it was not for the love of God, the world, as we know it, would not exist. Because of His love, God endured the rejection of His own created human beings and made provision for them to experience redemption. Instead of demanding payment in full for our sin, God took the penalty upon Himself. Time and again, His long-suffering heart has given mankind the opportunity to change their minds and come back to Him, embrace His love, and have fellowship with Him.
It is in the context of God's qualities and character that we look at our text for today. There is no need for privacy, no need for the cover of darkness, for the One who sees everything is the One who loves us. And, irrespective of what we have done or are currently doing, He has His arms outstretched waiting for us to turn and come to Him. The eyes of love are looking, and the Father’s heart of love is reaching out. To those who are practicing evil, He says, "Come to me; I will forgive your sin, give you a new heart, and welcome you into my family." To those who are doing good, He says, "Hold on to my embrace; never let go of my love and I will never let go of you."
Yes, one day soon, everyone will have made their final choices and “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.” Revelation 22:11 Yes, those who reject God’s gift of redemption will one day pay for their own sin. But God offers us a better choice. Today we can still make that choice, knowing that no matter where we are or what we are doing, God is there “beholding the evil and the good.”
God bless you as you continue in His service.
