A Covenant With Eyes

By   •   July 30   •   Topics:


Someone has said, “You cannot help the first look, but the second is sin.” Jesus indicated that you can engage in immorality by a look. The Bible places the “lust of the eye” right along with other major sins. Listen: “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” Peter spoke of having “eyes full of adultery.” No wonder Job said, “I have made a covenant with my eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?” Your eyes see only what your soul allows them to see.

Prayer for the day

May my eyes be on You, Lord Jesus, for I need Your purity and love to fill my heart and mind.

    Lord I look onto you, let my eyes not cause me to sin against you. Amen

  2. yaqub masih says:

    Yes, through eyes sin enters into our life because eyes are door of the body.

  3. Rob says:

    My prayer so often is that taught by Jesus, “…lead us (me too) not into temptation, and deliver us (me too) from evil…”. Without God’s help, we’re done (or should I say undone).

  4. Marcia says:

    A breath of fresh air – the great daily devotions.

  5. Andy says:

    Amen. Thank you for speaking God’s Words of Truth.

    I disagree. We cannot always control what comes before our eyes. Focus your mind and heart on Jesus. But it’s not always our choice if we have thoughts of sin. Acting out on those thoughts is where the sin comes from, but thinking “I’d like to punch that person in the face,” and doing the opposite happens when the holy spirt is present.

      You have heard that the ancients were told, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT MURDER ‘ and ‘Whoever commits murder shall be liable to the court.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court . . . “ (NASB) Matthew 5:21-22

    Thank you God for making me be me. Help me that my eyes may always see good things and things in Jesus name.
