God Sees All Things!

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps. –Proverbs 16:9 NIV

Many people are uncomfortable thinking about the future. There is great fear of the unknown and what we cannot see. But, as Christians, we need not be afraid. There are many things God protects us from without us even knowing. Nothing is hidden from Him. God even knows the secrets we have never told. He sees everything we have done or will do—He sees it all. Joshua 1:9 (ESV) tells us, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” He sees past, present, and future; and He knows the right time for everything. God defends us from evil forces here on earth. First John 4:4 (NIV) says, “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” Be assured we can never be separated from God’s love, and He is greater than whatever we face here in this world. Our battles may be more about what is unseen than what we see. The Lord reassures us in Isaiah 41:10 (NIV): “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” We need to trust Him!
