The Eye in the Sky

From heaven the Lord looks
down and sees all mankind.
           —Psalm 33:13

The approach for landing was a bumpy ride. Across the aisle, a tiny elderly lady sat next to a very nervous young man who looked like he could bench press an 18-wheeler. She patted his hand and said, “Don’t be afraid; we’ll be on the ground in a minute.” “That’s what I’m afraid of,” he said.

My favorite part of flying is the approach for landing on a clear day. You get a view of skylines, freeways, and golf courses that you don’t see at ground level.

God sees everything that happens on this blue marble: “From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind; from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth—[he] considers everything they do” (Ps 33:13–15).

Our reaction is one of these three: gratifying, terrifying—or “So what?”

God has his eye on you.
Keep your eyes on him.
