Watching over you

I used to be a school bus driver trainer. I really enjoyed teaching others how to drive the bus and how to be safe while hauling such precious cargo.
At first almost everyone I taught was intimidated by the size and by all of the knobs and switches. Many were apprehensive of the maneuvers that needed to be performed. Some had bad driving habits that needed corrected. But everyone learned.
My first lesson I always said, "you will listen to me and do things just the way I tell you."

I sat in the seat behind the driver. I would tell them what to watch for. I would tell them where to turn. I would remind them to check their mirrors, watch for hazards, look at weight limits, check for height clearance. I taught them what each of the knobs and switches did. They understood laws. They learned to be bus drivers under my watchful eye.
After the training and testing was over, they were on their own. Would they continue to do as I had taught them?

This is what God does for us. He instructs us. He guides us. He directs us. And He always has His eye upon us.
I think I can hear Him say, "you will listen to me and do things the way I tell you."
You have the choice, will we do as He has taught us?

I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. (Psalms 32:8 NASB)
