Summary: The eyes of the Lord are on you!
Eyes of the Lord!
Zechariah 4:10”For who has despised the day of small things? For these seven rejoice to see The plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. They are the eyes of the LORD, Which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth."
Good morning! Do you feel insignificant, small and lost? Mark it today, the seven eyes of the Lord are on you! You are the apple of His eye! Do you know that? Rejoice!
After the return of the people of Israel from captivity to their home town Jerusalem, God spoke to two people Zerubbabel and Joshua (not the assistant of Moses) that they would rebuild the Temple of the Lord. The work of the temple started but they were stopped by their enemies and they were mocked, despised and criticized from all sides; yet, the seven eyes of the Lord were on them; to help them rebuild the temple. Mark rebuild! Who said you will not rise again? You will! Your life would be rebuilt! Is it in ruins now like the Temple of Solomon, mark His Words today, it would be rebuilt! Not two eyes friends, but HIS SEVEN EYES were on them! Glory, glory. Glory! I’m excited! Seven eyes are watching you too! To hold you, watch over you, protect you, pick you, lift you up, feed you and set you high on the Rock! While Zerubbabel looked discouragingly at the problems around Him, the seven eyes of the Lord rejoiced to see the plumb line (work) in the hand of Zerubbabel. God looked at the finished point and rejoiced, while we are stuck with a short vision! We say, ‘now Lord’ but God says ‘not yet’. Dear, dear friends, you can never rejoice if you look what lies under your nose, stretch your vision and look ahead at the promised blessings kept for you. Yes, for you! Mature today! Stop being a fast-food Christian! Marinate yourself in His Word, obey Him, correct your life, work hard, be humble, separate quiet time with Him and be sure to be blessed. Stay patient! His Seven eyes are on you!
I guess when Joshua and Zerubbabel went for a walk around the site, where the foundation of the temple lay in ruins, where the stone was covered with rubble and sand; I guess they desperately tried to locate that place, while their heart sank and wondered, ‘where can we get the timber, where can we get the gold, silver, money and labor needed for rebuilding this colossal Temple?’ God watched their thoughts! You want to know His reply, here it is: ‘For behold, the stone That I have laid before Joshua: Upon the stone are seven eyes!” (Zechariah 3:9) Ah, who can hide that foundation stone? God said, ‘my seven eyes are on that stone!’ Give Him a shout of praise today! Do you feel, ‘I have not got a call from that company, though I received an appointment letter? Mark it, trust Him – He would send you to that place! Are you wondering, ‘will I get that visa?’ or ‘will I get married’ or ‘will this crisis go?’ YES, God would restore you! Let me give the lovely scripture that talks about the glorious rebuilding of the temple, before I go further: Zechariah 6:14’So the elders of the Jews built, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they built and FINISHED IT, according to the commandment of the God of Israel.’ It was done!
