God is Watching Over As We Meditate On His Word

The book of Psalms in the Bible begins with what I believe is a keynote psalm…Psalm 1. This psalm contrasts the wise, godly person with the foolish ungodly one. It begins by describing what the wise, godly person does NOT do - Blessed is the man (person) who:...

God Is Watching Over to Provide Every Need

Today I received this message from a dear friend who lives in another country:

I lost my balance in my bedroom and fell into the corner of a bookcase. It pulled the skin off my arm in several places next to each other. I could get the gauze out and tape, but I couldn't put it on by myself. I went out my door and right down the hall a nurse friend was coming out of her door. I went to her with my supplies and said, "I need a nurse!".

God Is Watching Over With His Infinite Patience

God Is Watching Over With His Infinite Patience

The book of Psalms is full of the chronicles of how God watched over His people Israel, over and over again with infinite patience, in spite of their rebellion and idolatrous actions.

God Is Watching Over When We Are Too Troubled To Speak

God Is Watching Over When We Are Too Troubled To Speak

I love the Psalms because they articulate so well every human emotion and pain that can be felt. In Psalm 77, the writer, Asaph, is recorded as saying this: “I cried out to God to hear me. When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands, and my soul refused to be comforted… You kept my eyes from closing, I was too troubled to speak.”

God Is Watching Over As Our Refuge And Fortress

God Is Watching Over As Our Refuge And Fortress

Recently in reading through the book of Psalms, I have noted that many times our God is described as our refuge and our fortress. Both of these words have a definite connotation for me, of a place of safety.

God Is Watching Over When The Weight Of Sin Is Oppressive

I cannot think of a single human being, who is honest to any degree, declaring that he or she has never or does never sin. Sin is endemic to the human race, since Adam first disobeyed God and became controlled no longer by God’s law, but controlled by his own sinful passions and defeats.

God Is Watching Over Even When Those Responsible On Earth Fail

Recently a family member was in the hospital literally battling for life. During one night, he had an unexpected bout with atrial fibrillation, which went on for over an hour.

God Is Watching Over When We Are Afraid

My mother tells a story of when she was very young, on her way to Africa as a missionary with her husband and 18 month old firstborn daughter. This was before America was at war in World War II, but because the ship they, and the other 120 plus missionaries were sailing on, had been a troop ship in World War I, its silhouette made it a target for the German navy.
