Proverbs 4:25

“Let your eyes look directly ahead, And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you.” (NASB)

“Let your eyes look (nabat: behold, consider, regard, see, respect, pay attention to, show regard to) directly ahead, And let your gaze be fixed straight (yashar: direct, right, well, upright, level, just, lawful) in front of you.”


Let your eyes pay attention to what is straight ahead, and let your gaze be fixed on what is level and upright before you.


I’ll be the first to admit that it’s often easy to look at the circumstances that are all around me. Thankfully, I came along before they diagnosed kids with ADD because my eyes, when not submitted to the LORD, run all about - seemingly on their own mission. But may it not be so as we now walk according to the Spirit. Distractions only turn us to the right and to the left – getting us off track (as verse 27 addresses). Today, be intent on keeping your gaze upon the LORD. Allow nothing to capture your attention but Him.
