DELIVERANCE ASSURED FOR THOSE WHO KEEP THEIR EYES ON THE LORD

C.H. Spurgeon

“Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for He shall pluck my feet out of the net!” [Psalm 25:15]

“Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord.” The writer claims to be fixed in his trust, and constant in his expectation; he looks in confidence, and waits in hope. We may add to this look of faith and hope the obedient look of service, the humble look of reverence, the admiring look of wonder, the studious look of meditation, and the tender look of affection. Happy are those whose eyes are never removed from their God. “The eye, “says Solomon, “is never satisfied with seeing, “but THIS SIGHT IS THE MOST SATISFYING IN THE WORLD!

“For He shall pluck my feet out of the net.” Observe the conflicting condition in which a gracious soul may be placed, his eyes are in heaven and yet his feet are sometimes in a net; his nobler nature ceases not to behold the glories of God, while his baser parts are enduring the miseries of the world. A net is the common metaphor for temptation. The Lord often keeps His people from falling into it, and if they have fallen He rescues them.

The word “pluck” is a rough word, and saints who have fallen into sin find that the means of their restoration are not always easy to the flesh; the Lord plucks at us sharply to let us feel that sin is an exceeding bitter thing. But what a mercy is here: Believer, be very grateful for it. The Lord will deliver us from the cunning devices of our cruel enemy, and even if through infirmity we have fallen into sin, He will not leave us to be utterly destroyed but will pluck us out of our dangerous state; though our feet are in the net, if our eyes are up unto God, mercy certainly will interpose.

“We have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but OUR EYES ARE UPON THEE!” [2Chron 20:12]

“Look unto ME, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else!” [Isaiah 45:22]

“Behold, we come unto Thee; for Thou art the LORD our God.” [Jer 3:22]
