The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.
The world is a precarious place in which to live. The breaking news gives the account of more senseless crime and violence. A pandemic shuts down our economy. A disaster kills hundreds of unsuspecting victims. Headlines recount the exploits of another rogue leader.
Uncertainty is the only certainty. Things change in our lives from day to day. Tests, treatments, and surgeries are on this week’s schedule for many. Others have jobs that are on the brink. Too many marriages are hanging together with one last thin thread of commitment. However, there is one certainty in this uncertain world.
The unchanging God watches over you. He never sleeps, protecting you day and night. He leaves with you in the morning, comes home with you at night, and watches over you throughout the day. God is certain. He will hold you steady when your world seems like it is falling apart.
- Thank God for loving and protecting you. Tell him that he is your “keeper,” “shade,” “protector,” and “guard.”
- Pray that he will protect and guard your children as well.
Father, help me hold on to you when the certain storm delivers uncertainty in my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
