The eyes of the Lord are in every place,
Keeping watch on the evil and the good.  Proverbs 15:3

It is quite sobering to know that the Lord sees all that we do.  The Scripture is clear that God is omniscient and even our thoughts & intentions are not hidden from Him.  This thought may seem discomforting but it should only be to those who are doing evil.  
I actually find this verse to be very comforting because it reminds me that God will carry out complete justice on all those who violated His perfect laws.  God saw and heard all of the cries that came from the children of Israel in Egypt and He responded in due time by delivering them from bondage and bringing them into a land flowing with milk and honey.  
May we be encouraged and not forget that God loves to reward His servants and He will remove us from this cursed earth and bring us to the place where He dwells and rules perfectly.  Let us stay motivated to serve Him so that He may be pleased by the good He sees in the place where we are located today.
