The 3rd Sunday in Lent 2019

That He looked down from His holy height; from heaven the LORD looked at the earth. Psalm 102:19

This continues the previous verse about God’s Word recorded for generations to come.

Part of this record is that God personally cares for us, even loving enough to look down from His holy height in heaven.

We often feel as if God is aloof from earth when we undergo trials and tribulations.

We feel alone, aloof ourselves from others.

Yet God knows our plight. He sees our plight. He intercedes through His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

In the midst of our trials, it is important to read and hear His Holy Word.

In such we know He watches.

In such we know He loves us.

In such we know He intercedes.

In such we know He defends us with the right hand of His majesty.


We beseech thee, Almighty God, look upon the hearty desires of thy humble servants, and stretch forth the right hand of thy Majesty, to be our defence against all our enemies; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
