Sir John Franklin is remembered for being a great Englishman and explorer of the Arctic region of the planet. As he was planning one of his expeditions he decided that, based on his journeys, he would revise the map of the world.
Previous to Franklin, others had been marking unknown territories with phrases such as “Here be Dragons,” and “Here be Demons.”
But on his revised map he wrote, “Here be God.” Sir Franklin, as a result of his journeys, knew that wherever he was God would be. Even in the most distant, most lonely, and most inaccessible places he believed that he would find God.
In Psalm 121 we discover the assurance and hope that wherever we are God is with us protecting and providing for our every need - day or night. He not only made the mountains and seas, the valleys and deserts, but all that they contain.
We must never forget that the Creator of the universe is the sustainer of the universe. Trusting the One Who “put it all together” enables us to believe that He will not allow “dragons” and “demons” to overcome the one who trusts in His goodness and grace.
Nothing will ever divert or distract God from watching over His children. We can have the utmost confidence that in Him we are safe and that we will never escape His untiring watch over us.
Prayer: May we join our voices with the Psalmist, Father, and shout, “Keep watch over me, Lord, as You come and go, both now and forever!” In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
