Think about this – Many places in Genesis, as He created a home for us...we are told..."God saw that it was good"....in other parts of the Bible it tells us that “The eyes of the Lord ARE in every place, beholding the evil and the good!" In another place the Psalmist says.....My help comes from Yahweh who made heaven and earth. May he save your foot from stumbling; may He, your guardian, not fall asleep! You see – He neither sleeps nor slumbers, this guardian our Lord. The Lord is your guardian, your shade, The Lord is at your right hand, at your left hand, in front of you and behind you, above you and below you and He has you Covered through the sanctification of Christ. By day the sun will not strike you, nor the moon by night, He promise's us and no others word is more true nor more sincere than His! The Lord guards you from all harm The Lord guards your life, The Lord guards your comings and goings, henceforth in Jesus The Christ and forever Eternally!.....No matter where we are or what circumstance we find ourselves in....God is always there....no matter that we know it or not....His creation that surrounds our lives are always for our good....and He is watching over you always for your good...The eyes of the Lord ARE in every place.... God saw that it was good and He protects you in that good and with that good!..... He cares about us and love's His creation, His children of Earth, and makes a way for us to be in relationship with the Trinity; Father God, Son and Holy Spirit through Christ that has told us in scripture “I am in The Father, The Father is in Me, you are in Me and I am in you”. Christ has made a way not only for salvation but for us to have a relationship with The Trinity; God the Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit
Now consider this - He says, “Be still, and know that I am God....other places within the Bible it is written “fear not”....or “do not be afraid for I am with you”....are you getting the messages here? We can fear not when we let go and surrender to His protection, His Love, His grace....for He promises us that eternal promise in His Word and by His Word.... He will never leave us nor forsake us; He will be with us eternally....thus our task is not to wrestle with fear....we don't even have to consider or even conquer fear because all He asks us to do is “Be still, and know that He is God....He will be exalted among the nations...He will be exalted in the earth.” He will do the the protecting and allow you to simply rest in Him and have the peace that passes all understanding.
Listen - it is true that it is important to read your Bible....but it is even more important to take to heart His words and live them....then really nothing can separate you from the love of God!
So I bid you to surrender to His protection....He never sleeps or slumbers....He is always looking upon you, He is always with us and promises to never leave us or forsake us HE gives you protection and all you have to do is be still as He has it ALL under control...
Today, right now, regardless of your problems, regardless of sin that you think might be tracking you, regardless of hard times, regardless of fear that has entered your life and tried to overtake you.....instead be still and know He is God.....He loves you with unwavering love that is eternal, regardless of where you are in life....and He provides you with a protecting, sanctification in Christ and a peace that passes understanding. How could your ever go wrong trusting in Him!
In His love, service and Blessings,
