God's eyes are on us!

by Spurgeon

Matthew 10:29-31 "Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?
Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will
of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all
numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many

God might, if He pleased, wrap himself with night as with a
garment; He might put the stars around His wrist for bracelets,
and bind the suns around His brow for a crown; He might
dwell alone, far, far above this world, up in the seventh
heaven, and look down with calm and silent indifference, upon
all the doings of His creatures; He might do as the heathens
supposed their false god did, sit in perpetual silence,
sometimes nodding his awful head to make the fates move as
he pleased, but never taking thought of the little things of earth,
disposing of them as beneath his notice, engrossed within
his own being, swallowed up within himself, living alone and
retired; and I, as one of his creatures, might stand at night upon
a mountain-top, and look upon the silent stars and say, "You
are the eyes of God, but you do not look down on me; your
light is the gift of His omnipotence, but your rays are not
smiles of love to me. God, the mighty, Creator, has forgotten
me; I am a despicable drop in the ocean of creation, a leaf in
the forest of beings, an atom in the mountain of existence. He
does not know me; I am alone, alone, alone."

But it is not so, beloved. Our God is of another order. He
notices every one of us; there is not a sparrow or a worm that
continues to live apart from His decrees. There is not a person
upon whom His eye is not fixed. Our most secret acts are
known to Him. Whatsoever we do, or endure, or suffer, the
eye of God still rests upon us, and we are under His smile--
for we are His people; or under His frown--for we have
sinned against Him.
