God is not limited by space or time. His “eyes” are everywhere. Simply put: God is watching. He sees everything. Solomon is saying, “Sons, I can’t see everything you do, but God can.” God watches over evil and good. He sees our good deeds and bad deeds. Furthermore, his eyes are not like human eyes – God can see our hearts!
This concept should inspire at least two reactions: fear and comfort. We fear the fact that God is watching because we know that we can never hide our sins from God. Those sins that we think no one saw will be held accountable to the Almighty Judge. However, those who know God as Father are also comforted by his omnipresence. As a loving Father, the Lord never lets us out of his sight!
