eyes [`ayin] are ever [tamiyd] toward
the LORD; [Yahovah] for he shall pluck [yatsa'] my feet [regel] out of the
net. [resheth] KJV-Interlinear
15 My eyes
are continually toward the Lord, For He will pluck my feet out of the net. NASB
All of us follow a pattern in our daily living habits. This pattern is what we habitually think and do, day in and day out during our life.
As a child thinks about food when they are hungry, and toys and play when they are active. Their focus is typically short term or whatever they are doing in the current moment.
An adult thinks about adult things. Whether work or social, the adult typically thinks further out than the current moment.
But regardless of the time frame, what you do day after day, over and over, again and again, becomes your habitual pattern of life.
Most folks do not think about God on a regular basis. Perhaps when they drive past a church, or are in some sort of bind in life, or on Sunday, or on holidays, they might have passing thoughts about God, but their spiritual thoughts are not habitually a part of their daily agenda.
And yet we all live in this devils world, which is a net or a trap that is intended to destroy us, whether we recognize that or not.
Those who have a focus on God, Christ, truth and so forth, are aware that God continually rescues us out of the ongoing traps that life lays before us.
Those who lack a focus or even an interest in God, are perpetually trapped, and they don't have a clue that they are trapped. Until of course, it is too late, when the end of their life arrives.
Having ones eyes on the Lord refers to the continual and habitual pattern of ones life which is consistent and obligatory toward the expectations that God places on each one of us. Namely to be in fellowship, to study daily, to pursue your spiritual life as required and expected.
This does not mean that you give up everything else in life. We all have to have a job, a career, a means of making a living, and so forth. We all have social lives of one sort or another. We all have families or friends or neighbors, or acquaintances with which we interact on a daily basis or from time to time.
And most of the things that we have to do day in and day out, cannot be avoided.
But what we also need to not avoid, is our daily bible study. That is something that we need to schedule into our daily life at some time during the day or perhaps at the end of the day. Whatever your daily schedule is, there is always a place where you can make room for your daily bible study.
Likewise, your thoughts in your head are continually flowing or cycling through your head. There is always room in your head, despite the many jokes that you can think of, for spiritual thoughts.
These thoughts can be your confessions, your memorizations of verses, your prayers, your wondering about life or God, or your future, or the last study you read, and such. There are many things that you can think about. And, when you place God in your thoughts then you begin to give your own life some purpose, you begin to ask questions, you begin to analyze things, you begin to figure things out, you begin to become objective and look at life from all angles, you begin to see life from Gods point of view, you begin to mature.
