Psalm 121:5 – “The Lord watches over you – the Lord is your shade at your right hand.”
Can you imagine the depth of how your Heavenly Father watches over you? Just like a parent who looks at his/her child sleeping peacefully, God’s eyes are always on His children. God promised the Israelites that they would return back to the Promised land Canaan. He assured them that He would watch over them and bring them back to the Promised Land (Deuteronomy 28:15). In the wilderness God went ahead of them as a pillar of cloud to guide by day and as a pillar of fire by night. He had His eyes on His people.
God watches if His people are on the right track. Nothing is hidden from His presence. Psalm 1:6 says, “For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.” God is our watchman; He protects us from the dangers of the evil one. The eye of the Lord is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy (Psalm 33:18).
God cares for His people. He delights in His people and would want all of them to not perish but receive eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ (John 3:15). Are we willing to cross this earth to reach the Promised Canaan by putting our trust in Jesus? He is watching over us and waiting for an answer.
