God never takes His eye off of you
That is my delightful granddaughter!! She just turned one-year-old this past February and is a constant curious sharp-as-a-tack toddling ball of energy! The other day, while fixing a meal in the kitchen, my daughter took her eyes off my little granddaughter for just a minute only to find her happily playing with the toilet paper in the bathroom just around the corner! Since I’m grandma and don’t have to clean up the mess, I can laugh and rejoice in my cute little granddaughter!
God, our heavenly Father, never takes His eyes off of any of His children – nothing we do or anything that happens to us ever gets by His watchful eye. When disappointments happen, God doesn’t say, “Oops, that one slipped by me!” Or when we fall, God doesn’t say, “I didn’t mean for that to happen.” And I know there are countless times that we are not even aware of that He has stepped in and steered us clear of some disaster or swooped us off our feet before we fall. He watches over us and is involved in our lives – for each and every one of His children, each and every second of each and every day and night. Nothing, no nothing, is out of His sight, out of His power, out of His control. No matter what happens or what we do, we can trust Him always – He sees – He watches – He moves and acts – He has a plan for our good and for His glory. What a terrific reminder no matter what each day may bring! What peace that brings!!
What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.
You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.
You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too great for me to understand!
“O heavenly Father! That you care about me so much is beyond my understanding! Thank you for Your great love and mercy! Help me understand how wide, how long, how high, and how deep Your love is for me! Let me never doubt but always rest in that truth. And LORD, may that love flow out of me to others – may I share this love with others who don’t know of this love You have for Your children. Use me to increase Your family. Oh, how wonderful and awesome You are!! In the name of Jesus I pray.” AMEN
