“My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth! He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. The LORD himself watches over you! The LORD stands beside you as your protective shade.” Psalm 121:2-5
I love 3D movies. Everything comes right out of the screen at you. A hand reaches out to point, and everyone in the cinema sees it right in front of them, a ladder falls, and we all duck. That is how God our Father wants to speak to us.
God sees us as individuals, not just faces in a crowd. But, unlike the movie, He is real and does not need special effects. God is all-powerful and can step into our lives, wherever we are - all we have to do is ask Him.
A phrase came to my mind 20 years ago and has not left me. “ONLY THE INFINITE COULD BE SO INTIMATELY INVOLVED WITH SO MANY INDIVIDUALS.”
God is so big that He has room for us all in His arms. He is also so close that He is there for us in all our need. He is more intelligent than any super computer and is connected to every one of His children. He is better that any Internet - no loss of connection, no worry about a bill at the end of the month and no need to shop around for a better deal; no-one can give us better.
This connection will not crash and no computer virus or power cut can sever our relationship to our loving Father. When times have been tough, His hold has never let me down. Today remember, God loves you as an individual; He is never to busy for you. God will never let you down but is right there with you. Your redeemer lives and His love will sustain whatever you may face.
