How God Feels about Us

By Greg Laurie

 

           

LISTEN 

 

 

 

“May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.”

—Numbers 6:24–26

 

 

 

Sometimes we might wonder whether God is really paying attention. Does He know what we’re going through? Has this caught Him by surprise? Absolutely not. He knows all about it.

 

I wonder if Joseph ever felt as though the Lord had forgotten about him. His brothers sold him into slavery for no good reason. Then he was brought to Egypt, where a man named Potiphar, who was sort of like the head of the Secret Service for the pharaoh, bought him. Potiphar took him into his house, where his crazy wife tried to seduce Joseph.

 

He resisted her advances, but one day she had everyone leave the house. Then she called Joseph over, pulled him down in her bed, and effectively said, “Have sexual relations with me.”

 

Joseph ran away, but Potiphar’s wife falsely accused him of rape. So Joseph went to prison. As he sat there, how easily he could have thought that God had surely forgotten about him. The reality was that God was preparing Joseph for a great work that was yet in his future. He would elevate Joseph into a place of great influence.

 

In Numbers 6 we find a special blessing that God instructed the priests to pronounce over the people: “May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace” (verses 24–26 NLT).

 

These words show us who God is and how He feels toward us. The Lord is watching us. We have His full attention. He’s attentive to us. He’s aware of what we’re going through.

 

God knows what you’re experiencing today. He’s in control of your life right now. And even though it may seem as though He isn’t watching, He actually is.
