God’s Face (1)

Have you ever been talking to someone and they looked around the room or at another person. How did that make you feel? Probably you thought they were not interested in you or what you were saying.
Have you ever turned your face away from another person? Maybe that person was a homeless person on the street or a person who was handicapped. How do you think those people felt when you looked away from them?
Our Bible verses today remind us that God does not turn His face away from us. God is interested in us. We are important to Him. God “sees everything that happens. He watches people closely” (verse 4b). God knows all about us, and when we are faithful to Him, He does not turn away from us.
Maybe some people will hurt you or ignore you today. Don’t be discouraged! Remember that God loves you, and He is watching you.
