~Job 34:21 For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings.
~Proverbs 5:21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
Why did Christ have to come to earth? God sees all things – He weighs what is in our hearts – He knows our thoughts! Just exactly what is in our hearts?
~Numbers 15:39b “…and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:
~Deuteronomy 12:8 Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.
~Judges 17:6 In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
~Judges 21:25 In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
~Psalm 36:2 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
~Proverbs 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
~Proverbs 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
~Proverbs 16:2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.
~Proverbs 21:2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.
~Proverbs 30:12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.
~Isaiah 5:21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
No one thinks they are “bad.” Most are righteous in their own eyes. But the Lord searches deeper than what lies on the surface. Our ways are not His ways.
~Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
~Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
So what is the way?
~John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
And therein lies the answer to my question.
