“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.” Psalm 33:12-13, 18-19 KJV https://www.bible.com/1/psa.33.12-13,18-19.kjv
It is such a blessing to be chosen by God. To receive the laser focus of the all-seeing eyes. In the Bible reading today, while the psalmist acknowledges that God looks at all the sons of men, he emphasizes that his eye is upon those that fear him. He guides them, he orders their steps, he fights their battles, he supplies them when everyone else is in famine. It is indeed a blessing to be a nation after God’s heart. Do you qualify? Do you fear God? Do you follow his prompting? Is he indeed Lord in your affairs or he is a guest with restricted access? Make the right choice today.
Prayer: Dear God, thank you for your love. I seek for your help through your word and the Holyspirit to live a life pleasing to you so that I can indeed benefit from being a person after your heart 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
