One of my morning verses this week hit me in a new way.
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
I just love the second part of verse three, don’t you?
Imagine a Heavenly Father who watches over us in constant vigil. Imagine a God who never turns His eyes from His children.
For the word us I will change to the first person, and you should too!
As I get around in the morning God is watching over me. As I sit at a stop light contemplating how I will manage my day, God is looking upon me. While I rest in bed with my eyes closed, God is looking at me.
I have a hard time concentrating on one thing for more than a few minutes; maybe a few hours for a movie or something similar.
It is impossible for me to imagine God watching me for hours, days and even years, but He does.
8 I have set the Lord always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.
Be encouraged today! God is an ever vigilant watchman!
