The Unseen Watcher

Some people laugh at the simple faith of childlike believers in God, and say that it is all imagination that there is no one in Heaven taking care of us. But we need not be worried by such skeptical ones. There is a God in Heaven and He is our Father! He never sleeps. He has charge of all the affairs of this universe, and is always at the helm.

This should give us all confidence. Our whole duty is to be ready always to obey our heavenly Father. The place of duty is always the place of safety.

[J.R. Miller]

Psalm 121:2-8 ... My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.  He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.  Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.  The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.  The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.  The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.  The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Psalm 19:1 ... The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Psalm 8:3-4 ... When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?❤
