God is Watching Over Me
The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Psalm 121:8 (NIV)
We all need help at some point in life and it's good to have the support of family and friends, but we need to look beyond that because the Bible teaches us that there is no safe place and no security system can keep us absolutely safe in this life. This is why we must turn to God for our help.
The Bible also teaches us that God helps those who seek His help. He assured us over and over again that He would be with us. God's protection for us is so deep that even when we die on this earth we don't need to worry or be afraid of anything. Nothing can happen to you without God's permission, nothing can harm you in His protective care; whether it is sickness, loss or even death, all of these things happen under the providential protection of God. He is for you, not against you. He is attached to your good and you can trust Him in all things.
If you need help this morning, then this message is for you. God's arms are wide open waiting for you, just trust Him to be your refuge, provider, protection, healer and father, for He never slumbers or sleeps. We have this wonderful promise from Him. As today's verse tells us, "The Lord will watch over your coming and going, now and forever." God watches over you now, and He will continue to watch over you forever.
