2020-08-22 - He Sees Us
Proverbs 15:3 (NIV) The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
With the recent pandemic, many people have been unable to attend worship services in person. We have been worshiping remotely via computers and phones. Just because we’re not inside the church building doesn’t mean that we are not going to church.
God is not limited to a building. In places like Communist countries people cannot afford to meet in a church or they risk arrest or worse. In the time of Paul, Christians had to meet secretly and usually met in homes of believers.
Solomon, the wise writer of the Proverbs, reminds us that God sees us and is with us wherever we are. The Lord is constantly watching over us. We are always in His presence.
Through prayer and worship we are able to communicate with God wherever we are, at home, work, school and anywhere. We are never really outside of His sight. We can live in the comfort that He is always with us.
