The Lord Will Watch

The phrase the Lord "will watch over your life" from Psalm 121 stood out to me. What God was impressing on me was that this is not just in the literal sense of keeping me alive.

God will watch over my life - the time I am alive on earth; what I shall do and who I will be; where I shall go and what I shall become; where I have been and how I have been transformed; how I have been a captive and how God has released me from bondage into the glorious freedom He has prepared for me.

"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." Psalm 121: 7,8 (NIV)

A Time of Waiting

I think that waiting is one of the hardest things to do.




"Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord." Psalm 27:14 (NIV)

"I will wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning." Psalm 130: 5,6 (NIV)

"Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!" Isaiah 30 :18 (NIV)
