The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the Lord hath made even both of them. -Proverbs 20:12, KJV
There are two main things this verse tells us:
- We can know the Creator God is watching over us and listening to us, for he created us with the ability interact with our surroundings.
- We should be thankful to and give glory to God for our ability to interact with each other, our world, and God.
Please take note of how this has been worded: interact with.
I can hear the arguments from others, “But what about those who can’t see or hear?” And these arguments can include the question of suffering.
A) We must remember that we live in a fallen world, corrupted and tainted by our sin. Sometimes, people lose some ability to interact in this world, and we have no one to blame but ourselves (humanity, not necessarily the individual, say, the one who was abused).
B) Sometimes God ordains a malady to bring glory to Himself by bringing someone to faith. Look at those Jesus healed during His earthly ministry.
But, again, read the first two points! The fact that we inherently are able to interact with others including our God who knows us, we should be moved to worship!
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
