“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”
What would it look like to live completely confident and secured in the love of God, and to literally be guided by His eye?! Is it possible to be so convinced and perceptive and to know His heart and nature for humanity so well that with one glance from Him, our whole behavior, countenance, and expression could change?
As you get to know a person, their thoughts, and feelings toward specific things, you become more aware of how you are influencing and affecting people around you. On my personal journey of marriage and in relationship, I have found security and courage in my husbands glance. Behind his eyes is what communicates expression and a silent communication of deep knowing and union. I am convinced that this was the desire of God for us as well. When your gaze locks with His, there is a transfer of His mood and essence that is imparted to us. This is what keeps our hearts soft to His Spirit, and what instructs and teaches us to become as He is, move as He moves, and be guided into the truth and love of His likeness.
With this comes a yielding and recognition that He is sovereign, He is good, and to just lean into Him trust in His goodness, as we allow His lordship and leadership to route our entire lives.
