The Lord is a friend to those who fear him.
He teaches them his covenant. My eyes are always on the Lord,
for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.
God promises to look after those who follow him. He doesn’t neglect us. Sometimes I feel impatient because I really want something and it hasn’t come. Maybe I’ve been waiting a long time and I feel like he’s forgotten me.
It’s possible I haven’t been looking at the opportunities he’s placed in front of me, or maybe he’s holding me back for some reason, protecting me for his long-term plan for me.
Either way, it’s up to me to listen for his direction by focusing my eyes on him. He protects me and he has my best interest at heart.
