His eyes are over the Righteous. March 6
For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. 1 Peter 3:12
Peter in verse 9 had just told the believers to not pay back evil that had been done to them. If someone had said something bad about them, they were not to respond back with bad words. How could they have this kind of meekness about them? The key is in our verse today. Peter said don’t you know Gods eyes are over you, watching to protect you and your interest. Don’t you know His ears are open to your prayers. He was saying, we can trust in His protection and we can also bring any problems to Him in prayer and He (Praise God) will hear our prayers and turn all our situations for His and our good. What a promise for today, He’s watching and listening.
