HE IS WATCHING US
“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.”
Matthew 10:29 KJV
Civilla D. Martin wrote the beautiful hymn “His Eye Is on the Sparrow”. If His eye is on the sparrow, then we know He is watching us. God not only watches us, He also protects us from danger and from those who would attack us. We have a loving, tender and compassionate Heavenly Father.
Someone made the comment “What I do in my own house is nobody’s business but mine”. That is not a true statement. Everything we say or do and everywhere we go is God’s business. We can’t hide from God because He sees everything we do and He sees everywhere we go.
Are we hurting Him and breaking His heart because of the things we say and do and the places where we go? We should never do anything on purpose that would hurt Him. However, we are still in the flesh and at times we will fail and hurt Him but when we do Jesus intercedes for us with our Heavenly Father.
We read in the Bible. “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:” (1 John 2:1). I am so glad that we have a loving Saviour Who loves us so much that He intercedes for us when we do things we shouldn’t do.
Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us so much that You watch us and protect us from danger. Please forgive us for the times when we say things and do things and go places that hurt You. Jesus, thank You for interceding for us and for never leaving us, not even for a minute. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
