Who is Looking Out for Me?
In this day and time, it isn’t a far stretch to think at times things are out of control around the world. The seemingly unfairness of world situations, the oppression or persecution of people for their faith, family and relationships, or even work situations can leave one wondering who is really “looking out for me.”
Each of us, to some degree, will fit in one of the above categories at some point. The ones persecuted for their Christian faith, as well as other faiths, face circumstances we in this country can hardly imagine. To them it is all too real as they live it each day, if they survive that day. Where do the most persecuted go for comfort? If they believe in God and His Word, they hide under His wings of protection (Psalm 91) and cling to His word. Psalm 9:8-10 is a Psalm one can stand with because of persecution and oppression, troubled families and relationships, or whatever breaks one’s heart, because God’s Word is true and He is faithful. Whatever the ultimate outcome, rest assured “God is looking out for you.”
Psalm 9:8-10: 8) “He shall judge the world in righteousness, and He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness. 9) The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. 10) And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, for You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.” NKJV
