God keeps you as the little man in His eye.

Psalm 17: 8-9 Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings, from the wicked who do me violence, my deadly enemies who surround me.

As obedient followers and lovers of Jesus Christ we are kept as the “apple of God’s eye.”  GCT, I wanted to remind us again as we go forward this week of the encompassing truth of the phrase “apple of Your eye.”  The Hebrew phrase calls this central apple or the pupil “the little man of the eye.”  We are preciously protected and cared for as being in the center of our Creator’s pupil.  What an amazing picture of how our LORD cares, protects, watches over and guards us.  He sees our every need and struggle. So, let’s do what David continually does throughout Psalms and bring our needs and struggles to the LORD knowing that as we are as the “little man in His eye” He will powerfully respond with clear vision of what our true needs are and the divine protection and care that only He can give.

Father, thank You for this beautiful reminder of how You have an eye upon us, Your children.  Thank You for this reassurance of divine protection and care as You watch us.  Lord, let this picture of who we are in Your caring sight give us great urgency to bring our needs and concerns to You.  Your protection and care are perfect.  Let the thought of us being in Your omniscient eye lead us to live lives that are holy and emboldened to do Your work.  Thank You for Your Son Jesus Christ who has made it possible for us as believers to be seen as Holy and blameless in Your sight.  Amen.
