-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?
