The Lord watches over you.
Psalm 121:5, NIV
Recommended Reading: Psalm 121
In an 1800s devotional book, John Cummings wrote, “Make sure of that one fact, that my everlasting Father takes care of the hairs of my head; that my heavenly Father watches over me with a love that never falters and with a patience that is never exhausted.”
Another devotional writer from the 1800s wrote, “[Why should] I despond since my heavenly Father watches over me yet more carefully, loves me yet more dearly, since himself has promised never to forsake or abandon me.”
Charles Spurgeon said, “If he be a Shepherd to no one else, he is a Shepherd to me; he cares for me, watches over me.”
Pastor and hymnist William C. Martin wrote, “I trust in God wherever I may be, / Upon the land or on the rolling sea, / For come what may, from day to day, / my heavenly Father watches over me.”
Our Heavenly Father also has a heavenly future for us, and a heavenly home. If darkness overwhelms your thoughts, remember the hope beyond understanding. Your heavenly Father has told you of the glory to come, and of the grace that will sustain you from now until then.
Though billows roll,/ He keeps my soul,/ My heavenly Father watches over me.
William C. Martin
