I have been studying and meditating on the eyes of the Lord the last few weeks as a part of my study of Song of Songs chapter 5. Ten of Jesus’ attributes are revealed in this chapter. The study of the eyes of the Lord should fascinate our hearts and remove offense from our hearts.
“His eyes are like doves, by the rivers of waters, washed with milk and fitly set.” Song of Songs 5:12
The two things that impacted my heart the most in this study were those of the widow’s mite story in the Gospels and the ascension of Jesus as described in the book of Hebrews. Jesus sees all things from His throne in heaven and He is the One that Judges all things. But this same one is described in Hebrews as our High Priest who became one of us, died for us, fought for us, knows our weaknesses and sat down at the right hand of the Father. This powerful Man on the throne became one of us. He is a High Priest on His throne. The widow’s mite story reveals the beauty of Jesus’ eyes to see, look for and value the most weak and broken offerings of love.
Jesus sees everything, He cares immensely and then He acts accordingly. Our hearts must have a living understanding of these three truths to love the Lord with our whole hearts.
