THE SILENT OBSERVER? “The Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish,” (Psalm 1:6 NIV). The way we are often treated in this world we wonder if anyone ever looks out for our interest. It seems everyone is out for me, me, me, meaning themselves, without regard for others. And this approach to life often has tragic consequences.
But as Christians we can be assured there is someone looking out for our interests each step of our way. God is always watching and working so let us live secure in that knowledge and look forward to a good day. And let us remember the final outcome, “the way of the wicked will perish.” It is also true that God is not just a silent observer but He is also an active participant in our lives through the work of the Holy Spirit. So whether others watch over our ways or not it is still true that, “we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose,” (Romans 8:28 NIV).
