“…. and He watches …”
Proverbs 5:21

Even the most secret or private things which we have ever thought, wished, said, or done are known by the God of Heaven. “For the ways of a man are before the LORD, and He watches all his paths.” In the Psalms we read, “You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.” The One who will judge each of us on the last Day is a constant witness of all our actions and reactions, both internal and external. He has a thorough, comprehensive, exhaustive knowledge of us. He knows us far, far better than we know ourselves. “There is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” Dear reader, it is a great insult to God when we are more concerned over what others see and know about us than what He sees and knows about us. We are prone to do this because we have such low views of God -- we are not nearly so grateful for His goodness nor so fearful of His wrath as we ought to be. We are also prone to do this because we are more concerned about our brief present than about our unending future. When we look to the left and to the right without looking upwards, we act very foolishly. For while we are doing this, He is watching; He is looking down. (Psalm 139:2-5 Hebrews 4:13)
