Do you see me God? Do you care?  Out the 7.6 billion people in the world are your eyes on me?. Knowing that God will see you through whatever you are facing is real.

Do You See Me God?

Mid-day on a recent Monday I was driving back to my office after guest teaching at Vanguard College with my friend, Jeremy Gifford.

I felt prompted to ask God for something. I prayed (with my eyes open) that He would do something special for me.

Nothing expensive (but not opposed to that).

Or flashy.

Simply something that would instantly and unmistakably assure me, God’s got His eye on me and He will see me through.

You’ve Got Mail

Back at our office I felt prompted to check my mailbox. There awaiting me was a solitary manila envelope.

It was addressed to the “The Priest Minister.”

No return address.

The accompanying note was a generic, handwritten advertisement for “Bible Golden Verse” cards.

The sender was a stranger to me.

Attached to the note was a heart-shaped portion of art board.

Not Just Any Verse

On the heart, written in calligraphy, was a verse from the Bible.

It was a verse that has given me counsel since I was thirteen years old.

And it’s a verse I’ve memorized, meditated on, and acted on.

“Don’t worry about anything instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done.” Philippians 4:6

What Are The Odds?

There are dozens of thousands of verses in the Bible.

There are many hundreds that are quite popular, familiar to and appreciated by the general populace of Bible readers.

The sender could have selected any one of these verses.

What are the odds of my favorite Bible verse, sent by a stranger, showing up in my mailbox, minutes after I prayed that God would do something special to show He had His eye on me?

You do the math.

I’ve done the backflip.

Do you need the comforting assurance of the Almighty’s faithfulness? Tell God. Watch for His answer. Remember to thank Him. God will “see” you through the most difficult moments of your life. Please leave a comment below. Thank you.

    A few years ago I attended a “Women of Worth” conference in NY. I had prayed a similar prayer – something just for me God. Singer
    Natalie Grant shared her favourite verse with the crowd : 1 Peter 5:10.
    This also is my life verse & part of my Mission Statement as a teacher.
    God is amazing. I stood in line like a ‘groupy’ just to share my story with Ms Grant. I’m sure she thought I was nuts. But God knew my heart.

    I definitely need God to reassure me that he has good plans for me, that he will present a woman who follows Christ and is seeking a man to fellowship with and learn from each other and grow old together doing activities together.
    I also need God to help my daughter to not be afraid to be alone in her room at night so she can stay sleepingin her bed and not sleep in my bed.
