"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. "
What an answer to prayer! I love this sentence towards the end of the following commentary: "As servants take their cue from the master's eye, and a nod or a wink is all that they require, so should we obey the slightest hints of our Master, not needing thunderbolts to startle our incorrigible sluggishness, but being controlled by whispers and love touches."
What an amazing thought to me, that God cares enough about me, our family, city, nation, world, to guide each and every one of us that have a relationship with Him. As I've felt him slowly nudging our family to something I would never have thought possible, or even really cared to consider, I'm clinging to this verse, among others. That He will guide us, as we have to follow Him. We don't know any other way to go!
As I'm digging deeper into scripture, I've come to love http://www.biblestudytools.com/! This was from the "Treasury of David."
Here the Lord is the speaker, and gives the psalmist an answer to his prayer. Our Saviour is our instructor. The Lord himself deigns to teach his children to walk in the way of integrity, his holy word and the monitions of the Holy Spirit are the directors of the believer's daily conversation. We are not pardoned that we may henceforth live after our own lusts, but that we may be educated in holiness and trained for perfection. A heavenly training is one of the covenant blessings which adoption seals to us: "All thy children shall be taught by the Lord." Practical teaching is the very best of instruction, and they are thrice happy who, although they never sat at the feet of Gamaliel, and are ignorant of Aristotle, and the ethics of the schools, have nevertheless learned to follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. I will guide thee with mine eye. As servants take their cue from the master's eye, and a nod or a wink is all that they require, so should we obey the slightest hints of our Master, not needing thunderbolts to startle our incorrigible sluggishness, but being controlled by whispers and love touches. The Lord is the great overseer, whose eye in providence overlooks everything. It is well for us to be the sheep of his pasture, following the guidance of his wisdom.
I hope it touches you as it touched me.
