Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Thursday 16 May 2013 at 5:39 pm.

16 May

 The eyes of the Lord look upon the righteous and His ears hear their prayers. 1 Peter 3:12.

 Write this verse into your heart with a firm faith, and see if He won't provide you with peace and goodness. Can you believe this, that God sits above and never sleeps nor looks elsewhere and has not forgotten about you, but instead with wide awake open eyes looks upon the righteous, who suffer violence and injustice? Why would you then lament and become depressed over the harm or suffering that you are experiencing, when He turns His gracious eyes towards you and of course also thinks as the true Judge and God in order to help you? For all the worlds goods I would want to buy this eye, indeed would believe such if I could have it; for it is most certainly not His vision that fails, but rather our faith. In addition His ears are also always open in order to hear the prayers of the righteous. Just as He looks at you with gracious, smiling eyes, so also likewise He hears your laments, longing sighs and prayers with attentive open ears, and gladly with pleasure hears them, so that as soon as you merely open your mouth He answers with a yes. 

I chopped Luther's lengthy question in the second sentence into TWO questions.  I found the original German very comforting - hope some of it trickles down through my handicapped 'sloppy' translating.  

 Fixing our eyes on Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit working through the means of grace, 

Elmer H.
