Watching over me? Proverbs 5:21

Proverbs 5:21  For your ways are in full view of the LORD, and he examines all your paths.

There is a problem here!  We may well like the idea that God is watching over us in order to help us, heal us, protect us and provide for us. The idea that He is watching over the paths we take, sees our secret sins is not so pleasant!  The problem for us is that we can’t have the one without the other!

Wisdom from the Lord is the solution.  Knowing and understanding the mind and purpose of God brings peace.  Storing God’s Word in our hearts gives power.  Confessing Jesus Christ as Lord promotes praise.  Our strength is knowing that we are weak and turning to God for strength.  He will show us what path to take.

Jesus said:

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”   Matthew 28:20
