Earth and all its inhabitants are under the watch of: God the Father—the Son—and the Holy Spirit. Nothing can attack this world, or hit us personally without Heaven knowing about it. What can slip by El Roi—the God Who sees [all] me? He has us engraved on the palms of His hands. (See Isaiah 49:16.) Everything about us is under Heaven’s watch.
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. 9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me (Psalm 139:8-10).
When hell fans its flames, look to the hills. . .
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber (Psalm 121:1-3).
Heaven sees every diabolical move hell makes against us; yet we’re told—to fear not. (See Isaiah 41:10.) All we’re required to do is have faith and obey God’s instructions; then—look to the hills for whence cometh our help.
We should be consoled with the fact the Spirit of the living God will personally escort us through every battle and storm that we face; in our loneliest times, we’re never alone. He said He would never leave nor forsake us. (See Psalm 94:14.) Every minute detail concerning our lives is duly monitored under Heaven’s watchful eye.
All injustice is being noted; all lies are being logged; all cruelty is being recorded; all such matters—registered under Heaven’s watch!
God saw all the crooked deals formed against us before they were even thought of; He heard every plan to take us down before even one syllable was uttered; He knew all the answers before there was a need for questions. And yes, God saw Covid-19 zooming in on earth—when there wasn’t a world to zoom in on.
Beyond man’s intelligence!
One might say, since Heaven sees all the corruption, pain, and sorrow going on, why doesn’t God do something about it?
Well, who is to say He’s not doing something? Who has enough brain cells to understand, debate, or question any of God’s ways? He said His ways and thoughts are higher than ours (see Isaiah 5:8-9). When Job started questioning God’s actions and motives, the Almighty replied with a series of questions that has befuddled the most intellectual minds. (See Job 38-39.) I hope you find time to read those chapters; after which, meditate on this:
Who is foolish enough to think anyone can get away with anything—when every move made is,
Under Heaven’s Watch?
