Remember your childhood years? I used to hope someone was looking when I was doing good, and really hope no one would be watching when I was doing bad.
But God sees all things, watching and weighing every step while we walk this journey of life.
In Prov 5:21, we read this promise:
For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings.
Of course, this is a warning against making bad choices, but so is Num 32:23.
We could also see His watchful eye as a great comfort and blessing. It’s why we sing :
I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
For me, I’m more apt to choose good and turn away from bad knowing that with every step, every thought, that I have an audience. An audience of One (Gal 1:10).
