The Apple Of His Eye!!

Saturday Philippians 4 19.png

Have A Wonderful & Blessed Day!!! Be The Apple Of His Eye!!!

Psalm 17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

Zechariah 2:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.
Proverbs 7:2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.

It is so interesting that some of sayings we use come from the Bible. How often have we heard “she is the apple of her Daddy’s eye”? Another way it is said, “Your the apple of my eye”. We know it means my beloved, or someone’s beloved. Someone that is very doting over a beloved one they love dearly.
The phrase occurs a number of times in the King James Bible and in fact it was a phrase that was already used in English translations prior to 1611.Whatever you treat as the apple of your eye is something about which you are massively protective. Our own eye sockets, eye lids and eyebrows surround this extremely sensitive part of us. To lose an eye is not only incredibly disabling, but horribly shaming also, most people that have lost an eye, or have eye issues are very embarrassed out in public. We protect our eyes at all costs. Nobody likes anyone to get close to their eyes.

Judges 16:21 But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him
down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison

We see here in Judges it was used as a punishment, torture. They did it to Samson.
So who does God treat as the apple of His eye?
God’s people are jealously loved, protected and honoured. We are the apple of His eye!
He takes it very seriously if someone harms his children. It will not go well for those who do harm to his children.
A blessing for you—will you take it?
Choose ye today;
A word from the heart—will you speak it?
Choose ye today:
Will you believe, or your Savior neglect?
Will you receive, or His mercy reject?
Pause, ere you answer, oh, pause and reflect—
Choose ye today.
A death to be feared—will you fear it?
Choose ye today;
A voice that invites—will you hear it?
Choose ye today.
Straight is the portal and narrow the way;
Enter, poor soul, and be saved while you may;
Think what may hang on a moment’s delay—
Choose ye today.
The cross of your Lord—will you bear it?
Choose ye today:
There’s life in that cross—will you share it?
Choose ye today:
Soon will your time of probation be o’er,
Then will the Spirit entreat you no more,
Jesus no longer will stand at the door—
Choose ye today.
The bondage of sin—will you break it?
Choose ye today:
The water of life—will you take it?
Choose ye today.
Come to the arms that are open for you,
Hide in the wounds that by faith you may view;
Death ere the morrow your steps may pursue—
Choose ye today.
