God: The Object of His Attention - Your Daily Forward Devotional

God: The Object of His Attention

Read Psalm 139:1-6

"GOD, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand. I'm an open book to you; even from a distance, you know what I'm thinking. You know when I leave and when I get back; I'm never out of your sight. You know everything I'm going to say before I start the first sentence. I look behind me and you're there, then up ahead and you're there, too - your reassuring presence, coming and going. This is too much, too wonderful - I can't take it all in!" (The Message)

How does it make you feel knowing that God is with you always - everywhere you go?

Do you feel that God has ignored you or is too busy to care about the pain in your life? The truth is "God sees you as much as if there were nobody else in the world for Him to look at," said Charles Spurgeon. "If I have as many people as there are here to look at, of course my attention must be divided. But the infinite mind of God is able to grasp a million objects at once and yet to focus as much on one as if there were nothing else but that one. . . . God sees you with all His eyes, with the whole of His sight--you--you--You--YOU! are the particular object of His attention at this very moment."

Whether we feel like it or not, we are an open book to God, and He knows our every thought (sometimes that can be scary!). He counts the number of hairs on our head. And there is no place we can go to avoid His Spirit or be out of His sight. If we climb to the sky, He's there. If we go underground, He's there. If we could fly on morning's wings to the farthest horizon, He is already there waiting! We are never out of his sight (Psalm 139, MSG)

Lord, help me to know You better. Help me to move closer to You today than yesterday. Amen.

Good morning.... My wife was recently diagnosed with a reassurance of a rare form of cancer, I have often wondered why! At times we have felt alone, more so for me because I grew up in a very violent home growing up so I have baggage. My wife comes from a divorced home so she has baggage. So we at times felt alone in this walk with the Lord, but I have always felt his presence in the midst... the promise IS I will never leave you or forsake you so.... come Hell or High water tho he slay me yet I will praise is Holy name... May the Lord's blessings always be with you all the days of your life in the mighty name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Amen.
