On every side, the LORD’S messenger protects those who honor God.
— Psalm 34:7 (CEB)
Some time ago while driving on the main highway in the eastern zone of my country, I noticed a car in the right lane traveling at a very low speed with its hazard lights on. I immediately thought the car was having mechanical difficulties. But as it turned out, it was an escort vehicle for a cyclist in training. The vehicle remained behind the cyclist, prepared to help with any mechanical problems and safeguarding the athlete against any physical danger from other cars.
As I reflected on this image I thought of today’s reading. Just as the Lord’s messenger watches over us, God is vigilant in other situations in our lives. God’s watchfulness does not mean that we are exempt from life’s ups and downs, but we can be certain that God is present. God will watch over us and surround us with goodness and mercy to sustain us.
