Scripture Lesson: 1 Peter 3:12
Boston Red Sox great, Ted Williams, was elected to the Hall of Fame
in 1966. Williams was the last batter to hit .400 for a season, averaging .406
in 1941. Twice the American League MVP, Williams set the all-time record for the
highest on-base percentage for a career with a .483 OBP. Williams lost five
years of his career to military service, serving as a fighter pilot in both
World War II and the Korean War. Williams’ keen eyesight – reportedly 20/10 –
was not only helpful in flying combat missions, but also enabled him to
recognize pitches sooner. Williams is often referred to as “Baseball’s Greatest
Peter tells us in today’s text that, “The eyes of the Lord are on
the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayers.” God watches those
who are living right lives – and not only that, He hears their prayers. If we
are living for God, He is there for us, watching over us and listening for our
prayers. The Creator of the universe loves us enough to watch over us and
desires from us that we pray to Him. Amid all else that must be done, God takes
time to be involved with us as individuals on a daily basis. The key for all of
this boils down to one thing … are we living for Him? Together with God there
is nothing we cannot accomplish, because He is actively looking at us and
listening for us!
it make you feel that God watches over you?
there changes we need to make in our lives to live for Him? If so what changes?
god today for His amazing personal interest in you.
Ted Williams had amazing eyesight that enabled him to do great
things on the baseball diamond. God has blessed us by watching over us and
listening for our prayers, enabling us to do great things for Him!
