Sometimes we believe that God doesn’t see us nor care for us. Other times we hope that God takes his gaze away from us and leaves us alone. Yet in spite of what we believe about God and want God to do for us his truth of character exists eternal.
One truth is revealed in verse 21, “Each person’s ways are clearly seen by the Lord, and he surveys all his actions.” God has the ability to see time and space completely at one. He knows everything I do and every place I am at all at once. More than that he knows what motivated me to be there, think that, feel that, say that, and do that. Nothing about every moment of me is hidden from God.
So what does this mean for my day? Knowing that God examines my path for this day will help me hold fast to him and his ways. I can be assured that whatever I do and where ever I am God knows and cares for me. I can be assured that though I do not understand and may not like it, all works out good for those who believe.
