Blink and Think of GOD. When you blink, remember to thank GOD for His protection.

GOD shields and protects His people.

He shielded him and cared for him; He guarded him as the apple of His eye. Deuteronomy 32:10

โ€œGOD is like an eyelid,โ€ my friend Ryley said, and I blinked in surprise. What could she mean by that?

โ€œTell me more,โ€ I replied. Together, we had been studying surprising pictures of GOD in the Bible, things like GOD as a laboring mother (Isa. 42:14) or as a beekeeper (7:18), but this one was new to me. Ryley pointed me to Deuteronomy 32, where Moses praises the way GOD takes care of His people. Verse 10 says that GOD shields and protects His people, guarding them โ€œas the apple of His eye.โ€

GOD shields and protects His people.

But the word we translate apple, Ryley told me, literally means pupil. And what encircles and guards the pupil? The eyelid, of course! GOD is like the eyelid, which instinctively protects the tender eye. The eyelid guards the eye from danger, and by blinking helps remove dirt or dust. It keeps sweat out of the eye. It lubricates the eyeball, keeping it healthy. It closes, allowing rest.

As I considered the picture of GOD as an eyelid, I couldnโ€™t help but thank GOD for the many metaphors Heโ€™s given us to help us understand His LOVE for us. When we close our eyes at night and open them in the morning, we can think of GOD, and praise Him for His tender protection and care for us.

Thank You, GOD, for using surprising metaphors to help us understand You better. Thanks for guarding us just as the eyelid guards the eye.

When you blink, remember to thank GOD for His protection.

INSIGHT:

JESUS Himself verifies the truth of GODโ€™S protection when He tells us not to worry about our lives: โ€œAre not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your FATHERโ€™S care. . . . You are worth more than many sparrowsโ€ (Matt. 10:29โ€“31; Luke 12:1โ€“6).

In what situation do you need to remember that GOD protects and provides? How can you remind yourself and others of our worth in GODโ€™S eyes?
