DAY 17 SUNDAY: FEBRUARY 2019

YOU ARE THE APPLE OF GOD’S EYE!

…Jacob is the place of His inheritance. He found him in a desert land and in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye. As an eagle stirs up its nest, hovers over its young, spreading out its wings, taking them up, carrying them on its wings (Deuteronomy 32:9-11).

As a Christian, you are the apple of God’s eye. God will never joke with you. The Bible says in the opening text that Jacob is the place of His inheritance. He found him in a desert land and in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye. As an eagle stirs up its nest, hovers over its young, spreading out its wings, taking them up, carrying them on its wings. Therefore, every Christian should take note of the fact that his dearness to God is unquantifiable in life.

The Lord has blessed and honored you exceedingly, and He is willing to do anything for your sake just to preserve you. That is why the Bible says in Zechariah 2:8, “For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘He sent me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye.” A Christian is very dear to the Lord; anyone who dares touches him is inviting the wrath of God. God is ready to kill and destroy the multitude of the wicked in order to preserve you as a Christian from being harmed.

That is the reason why the Psalmist declares in Psalm 23:4 thus, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” A Christian should take note of the fact that God is always with him no matter the challenges and circumstances of life. He promised in His Word that His rod and staff will always comfort you all the days of your life. The Lord is jealous over you as a Christian just to preserve and deliver you from all evil and wicked machinations of the enemies because you are really the apple of His eye.

Daily Tip: Every Christian is the apple of God’s eye because he is very dear to Him more than anything else. Shalom!

Golden Text: For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s (1 Corinthians 6:20).
