"The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, his ears are attentive to their cry." Psalm 34:15.
EYES AND EARS
Of all the senses these two are the ones that are able to perceive from the greatest distances. You can hear a thunderclap from many miles away, and you can see a star from light years away. You may think that God is too far away; that the distance and the walls are too big for Him to overcome but this Bible verse says that is not true.
EYES ... ARE ON
The Lord's eyes are already focused on the righteous; He is already watching and seeing. His attention is set. There is no need to say, "Hey, God look here!" because he is looking already, no matter how far you have fallen he still sees.
EARS ARE ATTENTIVE
The Lord is already listening and He is currently paying attention, and listening for your voice.
We know that God is all-seeing and all-knowing but this verse says something more- that He is on purpose seeing you specifically and intentionally. Not only seeing and hearing but the use of the word, attentive, suggest he is waiting for something specific from us.
He is hearing our sobs and he is watching our tears, but he is waiting for us to cry out to him. He is waiting for us to ask Him for help in a humble request.
God is the Lord and Creator of everybody but he has a special relationship with the righteous. The Bible teaches that we find righteousness in Jesus, (The Bible, Philippians 3:9). Jesus lived a perfect life without sin and as God's only son he was able to die for the sins of the world so those who believed in him could have eternal life and righteousness, (The Bible John 3:16).
If you are struggling then cry out to the Lord and He will hear you.
