COMING AND GOING

The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go,

both now and forever.

Psalm 121, verse 8, from the New Living Translation

In days which are hectic and fast-paced (nowadays it seems like it’s every single day), do you ever wonder, “Am I coming or am I going?” Direction is important in life. It matters when we are going somewhere. It matters on one-way streets. It matters on compasses and gps. And it matters in your life. Everyone is going in some direction. Even the most sedentary person is going in some direction. The issue is that first question I asked: “Am I coming or am I going?”

Many people–far toooooo many people–do not realize the direction in which their life is heading. Without knowing where we are going (or coming), eventually it leads to disappointment and feeling lost. And maybe you are honest enough to admit you have no clue as to which direction your life is headed. But there is Someone who does. God watches us every moment of every day. This is very comforting to know–at least it should be.

Why? He knows where we need to be. And since He knows where we are–He knows exactly how to get us from where we are to where we need to be. And as He watches over us, He provides us with a super-abundance of Grace and Mercy. He never abandons us. When we run away from Him–He runs after us. When we doubt Him–He is still the same. When we give up on Him–He NEVER gives up on us. And wherever we are headed–and whatever we face along the journey–you can count on God being right there–not as an observer–but as our Guide and our Strength.

Love God with all your heart. Love others the way Jesus loves you. And make sure all the glory goes to Him!

  1. I can’t say for sure “where I came from” and I’m not sure “where I’m going” but I do believe that Jesus Christ IS Lord and I know He IS faithful.
    As recorded in the bible, “I press forth towards the mark”, who IS Jesus Christ for as you say, He is the only One who can get me where I need to be.
    Everything in between, well, I believe it’s Oswald Chambers who professed
    “It is misleading to imagine that we are developed in spite of our circumstances; we are developed because of them.”
    May our faith increase in the One who holds the seven stars in His hands. May He continue to have mercy on us all.
    Hope you’re doing well Randy.
    Blessings to you and yours.
