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.


If we were looking for a verse that could be applicable every day, this one would be at the top spot. Walking in the reality of this verse would dramaticlaly change everything. Temptation, pride, false teachings, worry, sickness, anything that fights for our attention could be overcome by keeping our gaze upon the LORD and never looking back. Today, be mindful of your gaze. Don't look to the right or to the left. Do not waver.
