Many times we are unaware of being watched, but security cameras are tracking our movements. When the bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon, police and other security forces were able to use security camera footage to reconstruct the event. In Manitoba, a 57 year old woman left home for one of her regular long walks. She was preparing for a hiking holiday in British Columbia. Police have been able to use footage from security cameras to learn about parts of her journey. However, somewhere along the way something happened and she did not return home.
It is a nasty feeling to know that we are being watched for sinister reasons. But, there is comfort in knowing that those who care for us are watching. For example, my young granddaughter likes to explore playgrounds. When she is venturing into new territory she will repeatedly look back to make sure that I am still keeping watch. She feels comfortable and able to explore knowing that someone else is making sure she is playing safely.
Although we may not know it, Someone is watching our every moment. Thankfully God has no sinister design, but He does see our actions and know our thoughts. God â€œknows the secrets of the heartâ€ (Psalm 44:21).
God is watching us to see what we will do with His Son. He wants to have a relationship with each one of us; however, there is a barrier between us and God because â€œall have sinned and fall short of the glory of Godâ€ (Romans 3:23). We are sinners but we are not without hope. The Lord Jesus Christ is the only remedy for the barrier between the sinner and God. Jesus died on the cross, He paid the penalty for sin and bridged the gap between us and God.
â€œFor there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for allâ€ (1 Timothy 2:5, 6).
In order to enjoy a right relationship with God as our Heavenly Father, we must personally trust the Lord Jesus Christ and accept Him as our Lord and Saviour. We are then assured of an eternity in Heaven. As well, we can be comforted knowing that our loving Father is watching over us every moment. â€œFor the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayersâ€ (1 Peter 3:12).
