"Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy... Our soul waiteth for the Lord : he is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name."
(Psalms 33:18, 20-21 KJV)
We are never out of Our Awesome God's sight! He knows where we are and what we are doing. We often think about this when we are sinning (Him watching) but what about when danger is near. It should be comforting to remember that He is with you and watching you. That nothing will happen that He won't use for your good. Our Awesome God has plans and a purpose for you if you are His child.
The promise expressed in the Psalm above by David applies to us wherever we go. Whatever confronts us, "The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous and his ears are open unto their cry" (Psalm 34:15 KJV). One of the wonderful joys of being a Christian is knowing that Our Awesome God in heaven is always watching over us and ready to intervene.
Sometimes we feel that the experience we have is devastating to us, but it may be that it is the only thing that will make us stop and evaluate our lives, or possibly it was needed to help someone else. It is the best thing that will cause us to change to what needs to be done. If you need to change a habit, stop and get help from a Christian pastor who has been trained as a councilor and get into a Celebrate Recovery group in a local Christian church. This group is there for all who need help in changing a habit. Call our office for help from our pastor but get help.
We always have Our Awesome God watching us, and ready to intervene with help if we pray. He will help but He always wants you to ask. Verbalizing your need clarifies it in your mind and makes you realize that you are asking, for His help as you should. He is a loving parent, always watching over His adopted sons and daughters.
Our Awesome God watches all that happens, the good as well as the evil, and knows what the consequences will be. You can be sure that nothing happens that He does not know about because the "eyes of the Lord" are on it. Remember consequences can be and are used for good for some if not all.
