both now and forevermore. Psalm 121:7-8 (NIV)
What a comfort to know that God is always watching over your life! No matter where you go or what experiences you are going through, your loving Heavenly Father is attentively observing every moment of your day. Remind yourself that even though there are times when you are “coming and going” all by yourself, you are never alone. If you are taking the first step of a long journey, or if you are homeward bound, God is right there beside you.
Often we feel that God has abandoned us when we are going through difficult circumstances. We might say to ourselves, “Where is God when I need Him?” Yet there is nothing more comforting than the realization that God is right beside us, even in the midst of a crisis. He is a constant companion in our lives, and He’s never asleep on the job.
So today whether you’re on a remote island or in a crowded urban area; whether you’re sitting behind a desk, standing in a line, waiting in a doctor’s office, cooking in a kitchen, or camped out under the stars; whether you’re sailing on a ship, flying in a plane, driving in a car, commuting on a bus, traveling by train, riding a bike, or walking on foot…God sees you right where you are. Like a loving father, the Lord watches over the lives of His children. Take a moment to acknowledge His nonstop presence in your life and thank Him for always watching over you.“For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9a “He will not let your foot slip—He who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.” Psalm 121:3 – 4
