I know, pictures can’t talk but when I came across this photo the other day the words “God is watching over you” spoke to me. Considering the kind of week I was having, the thought could only be God-ordained. Isn’t it just like Him to knock me off my self-defeating perch and land on this timely truth? Something told me the message was also meant to be shared.
He really is watching over you and me.
When life’s got us tied up in a tangle of frustrating, convoluted knots, it hard to look beyond the mess and see the lifeline pulling us loose. We come to the end of our rope and gasp until we look up and discover God’s hand reaching out to us. It’s true you know. We are never out of His sight. Or far from His protective shield.
Just when we feel ourselves sinking quickly and it seems like all hope is gone, he pulls us out and carries us above our circumstances. Sometimes with the words of a friend, the just-right scripture, the song we needed to hear, the kindness of a stranger, the affirmation of a loved one.
You find something you need on sale on a day you hadn’t planned on shopping. There’s only one left and it fits! The person seated next to you just happens to know a doctor who can help. You get stuck in traffic long enough to not be there at the scene of an accident. The storm comes after you make it home safely. Out of the blue, unexpected good news.
Little things and big things that show us God is looking after us. Always watching over us and watching out for us.
While I was thinking and praying about what to say to you in this post, I was lead to Psalm 121. And it’s no wonder – the word “watch” appears 5 times!
He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. ~ Psalm 121:3
The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. ~ Psalm 121:5
The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever. ~ Psalm 121:7-8
We can count on it. No matter what you’re going through. No matter how deep your pain or huge the loss. God is watching over you and He’s got you covered. Now and forever.
Trust and believe. He will see you through everything every single day. It’s a promise!
I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go.
I have often felt God’s watchful touch in-site the words of Holley Gerth. That’s why I love linking ya’ll with her each week. So let’s head on over for some encouraging Coffee for Your Heart with Holley and friends.
