Keep me as the Apple of Your eye





 
Psalms 17:8 -Keep me as the apple of Your eye

Since the day that I have decided to follow Jesus many years ago; I have this deep intense desire.

I want to be the Apple of His eye. Yes, I only want to be the Apple of His eyes. I intensely aspire to be the Apple of His eyes. That’s all I covet and long, that’s my aspiration, that’s my dream!

Just like as I look at my favorite hamster with so much love and tenderness that my heart soften, that’s what I yearn for the Lord to look at me, to have His great love of tenderness for me, so full of passion that His heart melt and soften at the sight of me, so much that He will listen intently to my voice praying, He will pause to listen as it pleases Him exceedingly bringing immense joy to Him each time I fellowship with Him.

Yes, it’s not easy to be the apple of His eyes. It doesn’t come automatically to our relationship with Him, contrary to the belief of many. Most of us want God to love us much and that we are the apples of His eyes.

Yet it takes two to tango. The relationship requires both sides to act!



God has done His part; we all know that from the Bible. So we have to do ours too!

We are to please His heart, do you know? We are not to make Him angry or disappointed with our lack of love for Him, our disobedience and our lack of fellowship with Him. Well the list goes on!

We are to cultivate and nurture His love for us by being the person He wants us to be. Remember we are not to question His standard for us for He is God Almighty, the Creator of us all.

God loves all of mankind, every one of all races and all kinds, but His heart will melt and soften to only some of His children more than others.

Well, I am one of those who believe that God has favorites! So I want to be one of His favorites!



Do you want? Do you? Because I want them badly! And how do we become His favorites?

To those, we love Him with all their hearts, He will respond with deep intense love. To those, who seek Him and hunger greatly after Him, yes He is pleased. To those who choose to please Him in all ways, He will be pleased and will remember constantly those who desire to please Him above all else.

To those who choose to walk in holiness, to walk in love and compassion like Jesus, to those who will do and obey His commandments and His instructions for each day, yes all these please Him.

When God sees all these in a child of His, He will respond with the deepest love and tenderness. His heart will melt. Such person will become the apple of His eyes.

That’s what I want to be and I strive to be for as long as I can remember. I want and strive to please Him above all else, always to melt His heart and to soften His heart , for that what I want for the remaining days of my life , that is to be the Apple of His eyes.

That’s my heart’s desire and my lifelong aim. Is it yours?

  Yes, Silverpen, I too have that desire. The love He showed, in all that He did. When we see all of it clear enough, we surrender. Pity the one who is like the unrepentant, that day three were crucified at Calvary. Tragic. Great blog Sister. God Bless.

  Beautiful Blog. I looked up the Hebrew meaning for the word apple. It literally means "little man" Literal translation would read "little man of my eye". Try this experiment. Get up really close to someone you love. Take a good look at the pupil of the eye. You will see an image of yourself. That's what makes you the apple(little man) of the eye. It requires a getting up close to the one we love(our God) and allowing Him to look straight into our eyes as we gaze into His. He has made it possible, we must implement it. As He looked into the depths of my soul the reality of the extreme filthiness of my old man was starkly contrasted with the beauty, splendor, holiness and righteousness that is ours in Christ. Thank you Lord that we can get up close and look you in the eye.

  Isn't it fun, being His favorite!? I have a great relationship with my Daddy. He was always my hero and as a small child I was fascinated by his physical strength, his kindness, and his tenacity. He was a farmer and rancher, and later a businessman. I caused my parents fits when growing up, but his belief in me never changed. I was 19 years old and he was giving my boyfriend (now husband) the 'lecture' about being with me. The one and only time I heard him say this was that day. "Son, she is the apple of my eye, and you will regret it if you hurt her." I did mess up. I had sinned against God and my parents before and I didn't stop then, because I was well, a stupid kid! But you know what? I never looked at that man's eyes without knowing he hadn't changed his mind. I would always be the apple of His eye. SO, I know, no matter what, I will always be the apple of my Father's eye! Even when I really don't deserve it! Thanks silverpen! Favorite daughter! shalom! secondrider
