Prov.15:3 says, “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.”
This verse brings us to at least two realizations:
1.God knows your heart, your motives, your plans- whether they are good or bad.
This should be a reminder to each of us that we can never hide anything from God. To people, yes, but to God, never.
This is a call to live in holiness even inside the four corners of our room, when nobody else can see us because again–God sees all!
You may maintain a good reputation in front of people but if your heart is not right with God then you’re not right with God- and that should bother you.
2. God is in control. You and I can be assured that God will take care of everything.
Do you have difficult people around you? Well, who doesn’t. God knows everyone’s heart. Let Him deal with them because if you respond wrongfully towards those people, God will also deal with you. Remember, God is just.
Do you experience heartaches, discouragements, and/or trials. The 2 verses above our key text will help you deal with it.
v.1-2 of the same chapter says “A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.”
What has the tongue and answering softly to do with dealing with trials?
Well, as we have learned a while ago. God will deal with each of us individually because HE SEES AND KNOWS ALL. Is someone causing you to stumble? Is there a situation that messes up your future plan? God will deal with it.
Your task is to keep yourself from ranting and pouring foolisness from your mouth. (Which, by the way, is man’s usual response to problems) That is not being wise.
A woman who strives for righteousness and who wants to please God in her life will use her tongue wisely. God beholds the evil and the good– If you choose to do the latter, you will live a much peaceful life knowing that God will take care of the rest and He is pleased with the way you respond.
