and when you rise up.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
God is intimately aware of all that you do. He knows when
you sit down and when you rise up. He even knows what
you are thinking. Your Heavenly Father is intimately involved
in every area of your life no matter how insignificant
you think it is.
is with you when you go to work. He is there when you
play, and He watches over you when you sleep. He will
never leave you or forsake you, for He has promised to
stay close. Have you ever wondered why the God of the
universe would take the time to be interested in such

may be seated on His throne in heaven, majestically overseeing
the entire universe, but He still is watching over you.
Just as a father sitting in an easy chair, enjoys watching
His children playing at his feet, Father always maintains
a watchful eye over us. He is not pre-occupied managing
His creation, for His omnipresence allows him to be everywhere
all at once. So take great comfort in knowing that He
is always with you. He knows when you sit down and when
you rise up and He knows your every thought even before
you think it.
Father, You know everything about me. You watch over me
24 hours a day. I thank You that Your extravagant love
reaches out to me even in the very mundane aspects of
my daily routine. I pray that as I go about my business
today, I will be reminded of the truth that in Your eyes,
I am still just a little child, playing at Your feet while
You oversee the affairs of the universe. In the name of
your beloved Son, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
