I just looked at this set of beach sunrise photos now and OH WOW that IS a BIG “I” the Lord has!!!… not “eye” as in eyeball but “I” as in the Lord saying: “I AM”.
The Sun and my cellphone camera may have made an optical illusion of sunshine so bright on the horizon, a perfectly framed glowing eyeball shape, but there is no denying that God is so much bigger than THAT. Not external from us but integral – Him in us and us in Him. God is bigger than our thoughts of Him, God is watching everything, but NOT from afar, because God’s I is not an eye to see but an I to BE, a LOVE to KNOW, and a LOVE in us to GROW.
God had a promise to keep and give, by giving forgiveness thru Jesus to us. With Jesus asking Our Father for the Holy Spirit to lift us and move us.
John spoke of the Lord saying: HE is the Alpha and the Omega (Revelation 1,22). Jesus took human form then He then spoke of Himself being appointed by the Father, although not equal to the Father, still One with the Father (John 10)…
Prophesized and Planned, Jesus Was and most importantly Jesus IS.
Jesus said “I AM”
We also can say: “I AM”:
I AM HEALING
I AM HIS
I AM A CHILD OF GOD
I AM FOREVER YOURS
I AM A SINNER
I AM A SALVATION SEEKER
I AM A SOUL
I AM SAVED
I AM SATISFIED IN CHRIST
YOU LORD, ARE THE “I AM” THAT WE SEEK.

Ninety “I AM” statements in scripture that we can speak at: http://www.risenking.org/Resources/90_Statements.pdf
Romans 8:10-18, 28-29
But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
