Daily Devotions: THE APPLE OF HIS EYE

From Fire Yourself by Willy Stewart & Theresa Allen




Psalm 17:8 (ESV): “Keep me as the apple of your eye….”

Did you know that God smiles when He thinks of you? It’s true. You are His most prized possession. God thinks about you continuously. The Bible says that His thoughts about you are as numerous as the sands on the seashore (Psalm 139:17-18). Not only that, He keeps careful watch over you. He knows how many hairs are on your head today, and He will know how many you are left with tomorrow (Luke 12:7)! There is no one like you who can fill His heart with joy, and there is no one like you who can cause His heart to ache. When you are sad, so is God. He sees every tear you cry and lovingly collects them (Psalm 56:8). God does not withhold anything good from you. There may be days when you think that God is not fair or that He is not good. This is not true. Remind yourself that the God who you serve is always looking out for your best interest. He sees the bigger picture, and He knows the end from the beginning. EVERYTHING He does, He does because of love. Trust the Lord. Take comfort in knowing that you are His child, the very apple of His eye!

Smile! You are loved today!
