The Lord Watches Over You

What do you think when you hear the words, “watching over you”?  

If there’s a stranger or an enemy watching over you, then it is terrifying.

If you think of parents watching over their baby in a crib, or a nurse watching a patient in the ICU then it brings comfort and peace.

When you know Jesus as your Savior, the incredible perk that you have is God ALWAYS watching over you!  It doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing…He is ALWAYS there!  What comfort that brings! 

A few weeks ago, we celebrated Confirmation Sunday at our church. This is a time when young people from our congregation who have been studying the Word, stand up and confess their faith and prepare their hearts to take communion.  

Each student picked a confirmation verse for them to hold close to their heart for their whole life.  Today’s verse, chosen by Noelle Hartman, is Psalm 121.

We hope you enjoy this message!

Prayer: Oh, what joy to know that you are near me when my burdens grow too great to bear; oh, what joy to know that you will hear me when I come, O Lord, to you in prayer. Day by day, no matter what betide me, you will hold me ever in your hand. Savior, with your presence here to guide me, I will reach at last the promised land. (Hymn 803: Day by Day v. 3)
