“Always Watching”

·         From Roz in Disney’s Monsters, Inc.

·         To “the Eye” in The Lord of the Rings

·         To George Orwell’s Big Brother … 

The thought of having someone always watching can be rather disturbing. 

Then we hear the Psalmist say that as he looked to the hills he discovered that God was already watching him. 

Psalm 121

I look up toward the mountains.
    Where can I find help?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let you fall.
    Your guardian will not fall asleep.
Indeed, the Guardian of Israel never rests or sleeps.
The Lord is your guardian.
    The Lord is the shade over your right hand.
The sun will not beat down on you during the day,
    nor will the moon at night.
The Lord guards you from every evil.
    He guards your life.
The Lord guards you as you come and go,
    now and forever.

Our God is always watching and thus He knows when we’ve viewed ourselves more highly than we ought and when we’ve looked down on others.  He is aware of when we’ve turned a blind eye to one in need and when we’ve failed to see Him at work in our lives.  He recognizes when we’ve looked past opportunities to see or share His goodness and when we’ve focused on things we ought to have averted our gaze from.  Yet, He does not give us the evil eye but rather always holds us as the apple of His eye, He does not turn His back…but His cheek, He did not GIVE UP on us but rather GAVE UP His only begotten Son for us, Who instead of rolling His eyes back rolled the stone away. 

Where is your help to come? From the Lord who watches over you…lift up your eyes to Him.
