A small child was having a difficult time being quiet in church. Whispering in his ear, his father said in desperation, "Hush, this is where God lives. Be quiet when you are in His house!"
"Why?" asked the child. "Is God asleep?"
Certainly not. Our God, the God Who created heaven and earth, has promised us in His Word that He is always watching over us, day and night. We must never forget that He is "awake," watching carefully and waiting patiently to guide and guard us. This One, this all-powerful God, who loved us and gave His Son to redeem us, is always available to meet our every need.
We often forget that God is constantly watching over us and caring for us. More than anyone we know, He is for us. We often "trade Him in" for lesser "gods" who cannot be trusted - the gods of money and power, prestige and worldly success. Even though we turn to them often and trust in them frequently, only the God who created us will be faithful to us, strengthen and sustain us and never abandon us. In Him we are safe and secure - day and night.
Prayer: Lord, we are thankful for Your watchful eye, carefully overseeing our lives with compassion. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 121 He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber.
