“Keep me as the apple of the eye; hide me in the shadow of thy wings.” Psalm 17:8
Do you know who I am? I am the apple of God’s eye. Just as the pupil is the centre of the eye so I am the centre of God’s attention. Anyone who touches me touches the apple of God’s eye. This knowledge frees me to be the best that I can be for God.
Yes, there are times when I do things that make God unhappy, but I understand that he is unhappy about the things that I do and not about me. Jesus said that He hates the sins ,but loves the sinner. My actions at times displease Him but he is always pleased with me as a person who He created in His image and likeness.
God’s gaze is focused on me. With His help I am able to glorify Him more in my life, and sin less. I am important and valuable to God.
I am the apple of God’s eye.
