The Lord: My Keeper

There are some things that happen in life that would cause you to shake your head in disbelief; you just can’t believe it. I saw an incident like that recently on social media. In this clip, a SUV flew over a priest while he was driving to church. When you view the footage, you realize that someone was watching over him.

David had some similar experiences and so he said that the Lord is his keeper. The dictionary tells us that a keeper is a person who manages or looks after something or someone. When you view the clip, this priest knew that the Lord is his keeper. What does that mean in our lives? Psalm 121:7 NLT says, “The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life.” In these times, that is comforting for the child of God.

2 Samuel 8 talks about David’s military victories. It takes more than skill to be successful in battle. When David defeated Goliath in battle, Goliath was skilled, but the Lord was David’s keeper. However, David had other military victories and verse 6 says, Then he placed several army garrisons in Damascus, the Aramean capital, and the Arameans became David’s subjects and paid him tribute money. So the Lord made David victorious wherever he went.” The Lord was his keeper and made him successful.

But David knew the secret of living under the protection of God. In Psalm 31:23 David said, “Love the Lord, all you godly ones! For the Lord protects those who are loyal to him, but he harshly punishes the arrogant.” The first step is loving God. I know there are many who say that they love God but how do you know? Luke 10:37 gives the benchmark: ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” When we love God’s way, He will watch over our lives.

Thought for Today: Friend, the Lord is our keeper.

Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
