Psalms 11:4

"The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord's throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men."
Psalms 11:4

A good reminder today that God is watching over us.  Nothing that we do is hidden from him... and although he doesn't always act immediately to condemn unrighteousness (giving us all a change to repent), he will act in his own time.  We wonder sometimes why God lets bad things happen, or why good things happen to someone else. :)  It is hard to know the specifics of each situation, but God is a perfect, just God... and if we are patient, things will work out well.  I think it is actually to our advantage that he doesn't act quickly... it gives us time to realize all the wrongs that *we* have done... and to repent, to change.  It is also one of our tests in this life... to see if we can know that God is there and an active participant in our lives through our daily walk with him, rather than requiring him to prove that he isn't sleeping. :)  Personally, I know that God is there every minute of my life, watching... waiting for me to talk to him, to ask him into my day.  It is comforting to know that he is there, and that he is in charge.  If the world were left to purely earthly guidance we probably would have blown ourselves up long ago.  I know that my life would be a lot poorer.  Today, let's remember what God has done for us, and ask him to share our day.
