God's Present Help

As a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings
There is never a moment, nor any experience, in the life of a true Christian, from the heart of which a message may not instantly be sent up to God, and back to which help may not instantly come. God is not off in some remote heaven merely. He is not away at the top of the long steep life-ladder, looking down upon us in serene calm and watching us as we struggle upward in pain and tears. He is with each one of us on every part of the way. His promise of presence is an eternal present tense--"I am with thee." So "Thou God seest me" becomes to the believer a most cheering and inspiring assurance. We are never out of God's sight for a moment. His eye watches each one of us continually, and his heart is in his eye. He comes instantly to our help and deliverance when we are in any need or danger.

Psalms 33:18-20: Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield. (KJV)
Psalms 34:15: The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. (KJV)
Psalms 50:15: And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. (KJV)
Matthew 28:20: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (KJV)
Acts 18:10: For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city. (KJV)
1 Peter 3:12: For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. (KJV)
