Have you ever known of a time that something went wrong and the outcome could have been so much worse and you simply could not understand how you even made it through?
The answers to every single question that we may have about life can be found in the word of God.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
~Dear beautiful woman of God, your help comes from the Lord!
God watches over you in your time of need. He sends his angels with a hedge of protection around you. Even when you can not see him working, moving, and making a way for you, I promise you that he is indeed helping you!
~The maker of heaven and of Earth finds you special!
~You are lovely, daughter of God, so lovely that he sent his only son to die for you.
You are loved by the creator of the universe, he will not slumber or sleep because he is constantly watching over you. That should give you goosebumps for real..I know that makes me want to run around and shout…GLORY!!!!!!
IMPORTANT THINGS TO ALWAYS REMEMBER:
THE LORD WATCHES OVER YOU…….
HE IS A PRESENT HELP IN TIME OF NEED……
YOU NEED ONLY ASK………
YOU ARE NEVER ALONE….
LET US PRAY:
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for always looking out for me, watching over me and protecting me. I know that what your word says is true, you are a present help in time of need. I need you, God, more than ever to help me understand that I am not ever alone and that you are by my side always. Forgive me when I fail you…In Jesus name, I pray…AMEN.
/> You woke up this morning, after a good night’s sleep (I hope) during which, like all of us, you surrendered completely to sleep.
These moments when we are deeply asleep are unique…we no longer hear anything, we no longer feel anything, we no longer can DO anything…In short, we’re not controlling anything, when all is said and done!
But God…He never sleeps! Psalm 121 talks about it…
“Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.”
God always maintains control of your life. He never suddenly wakes up from a dead sleep, surprised and caught unaware. He constantly watches over each of His children…and thus, you too!
Verse 5 of this Psalm also assures us that the Lord is our keeper, our guardian. He is at our side.
“The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand.”
You and I can sleep easy, have long nights of rest…our keeper is there, faithful, right alongside us, and He will never leave us.
God will never abandon you, my friend…He attentively watches over you, every single moment.
El Roi: The God who watches over me
“Look at me. Look at me!” “Watch me, Mommy!!!” “Watch this!” All of these are phrases that children use to get someone’s attention whether they are jumping into the pool, standing in the batter’s box, or coloring a picture. Children need the affirmation that what they are doing is good and right. But how many times have you heard a child say, “Watch me get this cookie before supper!” or “Look at me. I am going to hit my sister with this toy.”? Probably not too many times. We tend to want people to see the good and hide the bad and ugly. The reason for this is that more times than not, love is based on performance, not just because we are someone uniquely made by God’s hands. Yet God, who loves unconditionally, see us all the time. He sees the good, bad and ugly and loves us just the same. And because His eyes are always on us, we never have to say, “Watch me!” As the song says, “His eyes are on the sparrow and I know He watches me”.
Meditate on it, Pray it, Believe it—His Word is true.
- Meditate on it . . . As God instructs in Joshua 1:8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate (listen, think, take it to heart, absorb it) on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
Genesis 16:13-14 (NIV) She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.” That is why the well was called Beer Lahai Roi ; it is still there, between Kadesh and Bered.
(This is the only place in the Bible that this title is referenced for God, but the attribute is seen in other scriptures.)
Job 34:21-22 (GW) God’s eyes are on a person’s ways. He sees all his steps. There’s no darkness or deep shadow where troublemakers can hide.
2 Chronicles 16:9 (NASB) For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.
Proverbs 15:3 (ESV) The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping by Giant Savings” href=”http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2%20Chronicles%2016:9;Proverbs%2015:3&version=ESV;NIV1984;MSG;NLT;NASB”>watch on the evil and the good.
1 Peter 3:11-12 (GW) They must turn away from evil and do good. They must seek peace and pursue it. The Lord’s eyes are on those who do what he approves. His ears hear their prayer. The Lord confronts those who do evil.”
Meditate on the truth that God is watching you; He is El Roi! Does this truth bring joy? comfort? conviction? Encouragement?
- Pray it . . .
Praise God for being El Roi!
Thank Him for watching over you. Think of a time He kept you from harm or injury…thank Him. Think of a time He guarded your steps…thank Him. Think of a time He watched over you when you were afraid and alone…thank Him. Think of a time He saw that you needed support and supplied it…thank Him. Think of a time He was watching you obey Him…thank Him.
He does see us even when we are sinning. Ask Him to show you a time where He watched you disobey Him…confess this sin and receive His forgiveness. Sin doesn’t go unnoticed by God…confess and be cleansed. Turn from evil and do good.
God is watching every step of your path. Ask Him for wisdom with decisions you have to make. Surrender your heart completely to Him and ask Him to show you the thoughts, words, and actions that He approves. Where are you weak? Needing help? Call on El Roi, the One who can strongly support you!
Ask God to show you who in your life needs to know that God is El Roi. Who in your circle needs to know that God sees them and knows them…that they are not invisible to Him and that He cares? Someone in your home? At the grocery store? Work? Church? Ballpark? Neighborhood? Ask God to show you how to share this message of who He is.
- Believe it—His Word is true
God is watching over you. He is your guardian and His eyes never miss anything that is going on in your life. God’s eyes are already glued to you! Nothing He sees is going to make Him stop loving you. Take comfort in this truth and rest in His watchful eye.
