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 various 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. He is with us always, protecting us 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 can never escape His untiring, unceasing 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!” How blest we are for Your love. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever. Psalm 121
