Doves' Eyes

When a dove fixes its gaze upon its mate, it is not distracted by any activities around it. Therefore, it is often referred to as being a “love bird.”

Our having this “dove's eye” indicates that we are becoming increasingly aware of the Lord's person and presence, and that we possess a spiritual awareness that will lift us above the pulls of the earthly. This “single eye” will enable us to become sensitive to the Lord's presence, and obedient to His desire and purpose.

The Lord's favor rests upon those who have cultivated a “single eye” toward Him. These can be easily led by Him, for they are close enough to see which way His eye is looking.

[Wade E. Taylor]

Song of Solomon 1:15 ... Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves' eyes.

Hebrews 12:2 ... Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Psalm 32:8 ... I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. ❤
