Watch this!

Psalm 33: 18-19

But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. NIV

I like the way The Message paraphrases this verse, “Watch this:  God’s eye is on those who respect him, the ones who are looking for his love.  He’s ready to come to their rescue in bad times, in lean times he keeps body and soul together.” MSG

I like that is starts out, “Watch this!”

Watch this — God is going to pull a rabbit out of the hat, and you’re going to get to see it.

Watch this — God is imminently able to protect and provide for his own, and he may choose to bless them in ways that will astound you … and them.

I love also that it says, “He’s ready to come to their rescue.”  That ties to all the verses that I’ve looked at that detail God’s desire for us to call out to Him in times in of need.

If we will call out … He’s ready … Watch this!

That’s what I’ll think about today.
