Everywhere, All At Once (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 69)
Proverbs 15:3 (NLT)
The Lord is watching everywhere, keeping his eye on both the evil and the good.
Have you ever felt like someone or something is watching you? Well, there is. God is watching your every move at all times. Not only is He watching our movements, but He also knows our thoughts. He knows our actions even before we do them and our words even before we speak them. God is with us and with everyone else all at the same time.
God has always been present everywhere at once and all-knowing. But that shouldn’t scare us. Instead, it should comfort us to know that Someone cares enough about us to keep us under His protection and watchful eye. God knows everything about us and He loves us and accepts us just the way we are. God weeps at our deepest hurts and feels our deepest desires.
The very fact that God takes time to know us so intimately and watch us so carefully is reason enough to give thanks. While we may be busy and pressed for time, God is never in such a rush. He always has an open ear to hear us when we pray and to help us when we need it most. God knows us and He wants most for us to know Him. To know God is the greatest experience we can have.
Knowing God as out Father is of utmost importance for living our lives. We cannot live life fully outside of God. The world becomes stranger, madder, and more painful outside of the knowledge of God. Disregard God and His words and you will inevitably stagger through life aimlessly and undirected. There is no peace like the peace God gives to those who know Him. Our relationship with God guarantees joy, hope, strength, and a heartfelt abundance in life.
“Your faith will not fail while God sustains it; you are not strong enough to fall away while God is resolved to hold you.”
