I was at work the other day and someone from another department came by looking for a coworker who had been in a meeting all morning. “I think he’s still in that meeting,” someone said. Another person piped up, “I never knew he left.” And still another added, “I never knew he came back!” No one knew where he was, when he left or came back. The exchange reminded me of the Psalm 121:8:
Psalm 121:8 The LORD keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.
Our locations can change pretty quickly sometimes. And other times, not so much. Sometimes we find ourselves in meetings that seem like they will never end. And sometimes others may lose track of where we are. Sometimes even we may not know where we are. But the Lord is always aware of our location. He never loses track. He is aware of our going out in and our coming in. Not just now but forever.
