The Lord Watches Over Us
Psalm 33:18 (New Living Translation)18 "But the Lord watches over those who fear him, those who rely on his unfailing love." Our heavenly Father is a loving God who is trustworthy and just in all things. I am taking comfort in the fact that God is truly watching over me and my family. He isn't an innocent bystander just glancing here and there and not engaged. He is actively watching over and protecting and guiding his people who rely on his unfailing love. How do I rely on his unfailing love? Just as I wrote that our Heavenly Father isn't idly standing by; we shouldn't be either. I have to remind myself at times, that I have to be engaged and actively reading the word, praying the word and believing the word. God isn't going to do that for me. There are so many promises I may not even know pertain to me just because I ha vent read it and prayed it in his word. The scripture states that God is no respecter of persons. it also states that he will never leave us nor forsake us. Therefore i should be able to have what his word says i can have. The Holy Spirit is watching over you and I and longing to engage us in conversation and worship. The Lord is watching over us. That doesn't mean that nothing bad, hard or wrong cannot enter our lives today. It does mean that he is right along side of us, loving us, and holding us up when the good or bad decides to come along. Thank your heavenly father today for all his loving watching eye on you.
