Candidates for the U.S. Secret Service undergo brutal background checks and intense testing to measure intelligence and physical stamina. Less than one percent of applicants make the cut.
Agents that protect the president and other officials are ever-present but seldom seen. It’s arguably the best-trained team in the world.

He knows when you sit and when you stand, when you go out and when you lie down (Ps 139:2, 3).

He has his eye on you.
You will never be where he isn’t.
