This verse says that God not only sees you but He is examining you closely. I like to watch people. Like when I'm riding on the interstate, for example. I like to notice people in different cars I pass. What they are doing, who they are with, where they appear to be headed., all of these I find interesting. I think it's the identification I feel with them... we are all part of the same race... the human race. Once while traveling with my boys when they were young, almost in Dalton to visit family, I pulled off at an exit for gas. There was an older couple there who had pulled off the interstate as well, and the lady had died while he was driving down the interstate. He was pacing around the car holding their dog by the leash. He looked so lost and alone.
I couldn't help but sit there in my car and just watch him. I couldn't move. The thought that you could be just riding down the road with your best friend and look over to find them dead was shocking. The realization that he was alone in the world now so far from home, and the question of how would he go home astounded me. Would he have to drive his car the rest of the way to Michigan alone? What would they do with her? Who would take care of him? I just sat there and watched the crowd gathering until I could pull away. He just seemed so alone and oblivious to anyone around him.
I think this is the way God is with us sometimes. He is there above us, watching us. Yet we walk around oblivious to His attention to our situation, as if we think, "What could He do to help me? You see, his situation seemed hopeless to me, just like it did to him. But, God has all power in heaven and Earth. Our situation is in His hands. He has the answers to this test. He has the answer key. Lift up your head, and turn your eyes to God. He's looking right at you.
