Psalm 145:17-18 NIV 2011
The Lord is righteous in all his ways and faithful in all he does. The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
This is the last of David’s psalms. One commentator wrote, “A magnificent hymn to the Lord, the Great King for his mighty acts and benevolent virtues.” The Lord is righteous. Ezra 9:15, “Lord, the God of Israel, you are righteous.” God is faithful. Psalm 145:13, “The Lord is trustworthy in all his promises and faithful in all he does.” God is ever present and hears His people. Psalm 46:1, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” The Lord keeps watch over those who come to Him in prayer. Psalm 1:6a, “For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous.” The Lord watches over all who belong to Him.
From the first time I sang “Jesus Loves Me” and the “B I B L E” I knew the Lord was watching over me. That was over sixty-five years ago and that same knowledge remains with me today. There was a time in my life when I was far, far away from Him but He still watched over me even when I was defiant. I finally called out to Him and He welcomed me back with open arms. The Lord truly watches over all who belong to Him.
How does the Lord remain near us?
Thankful He watches over us,
