God seest me. Gen. 16:13
God is a vigilant observer of the actions
of the children of men. Nothing occurs in earth or heaven without the knowledge
of the Creator. Nothing can happen without His permission. He on whom the fate
of an empire may depend is watched over with a vigilance which knows no
relaxation by Him who "giveth salvation unto kings," to whom belong
"the shields of the earth." And the poor man is as tenderly watched
over as the monarch upon his throne.
God is constantly at work for the good of
His creatures. . . . Times without number God has interposed to avert death, to
keep men, women, and children in safety when Satan purposed a result wholly
disastrous. . . .
This world has been signally blessed by
God. Human beings are the recipients of countless mercies. Providence watches
over and shields them. Upon them are poured the choicest gifts in heaven's
God knows you by name. He knows every
action of your life.
God knows every thought, every purpose,
every plan, every motive. . . . As the artist transfers to the canvas the
features of the face, so the features of each individual character are
transferred to the books of heaven. God has a perfect photograph of every man's
God wants you to recognize the divine
presence. His peace and comfort and grace and joy will change the shadow of
death into bright morning and blessed sunshine. . . . A reverential spirit
realizes that the heart must be kept by the power of God. Ministering angels
open the eyes of the mind and heart to see wonderful things in the divine law,
in the natural world, and in the eternal things revealed by the Holy Spirit.
