Have you ever seen a little child do this; either when in trouble or even just playing around? They think that if they cover their eyes, you can’t see them – but we all know different.
To us it may seem silly, but we do it too (though maybe not literally). Have you ever thought that by ‘covering your eyes’ God can’t see you? That you can escape discipline?
But, just like we can still see a child when he covers his eyes, God can also see us and everything we’ve done when we ‘cover our eyes’.
“The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.” Proverbs 15:3
