Did you know your eyes focus on 50 different objects every second and the only organ more complex than the eye is the brain?
Your eyes can distinguish approximately 10 million different colors and 80 percent of all learning comes through the eyes. The human eye is fascinating and Incredible but not supernatural. Only God has supernatural eyes. Able to see our hearts, our intentions, our potential and our destiny.
Sadly, in our fallen world, God sees a lot of awful things. His eyes see violence, hunger, fear and sickness. He sees unmet expectations, broken hearts and crushed dreams. He sees wasted potential and broken relationships. He sees needless destruction, forces of weather, nightmares and loss of hope. God’s eyes see all the destruction sin has wrecked upon our personal lives, the lives of our loved ones and the earth itself. In the midst of all that, He sees you. He sees you doing your best as you walk out this human life. He sees your sacrifices, He watches you turn the other cheek, He sees you bite your tongue, He sees you take the high road, again. He sees you be humble when you could be prideful. He sees you be kind instead of judgmental. He sees when you are misunderstood. He sees the time you spend serving others when you could be home relaxing. He sees your tired feet and aching back. He sees.
