“My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.” (Psalm 121:2-4, NIV)
When speaking to a new friend online late one night, I had to end the conversation early because I was sleepy. This new friend of mine wanted to know all about me and my work. I asked her if I could answer her questions “tomorrow” because I was sleepy now. So we said “Good night” and I went to bed. As I drifted off to sleep, I thought how grateful I am that I serve a God who never sleeps!
The Bible says in Psalm 121:4 that God will never “slumber nor sleep.” That means that not only is He wide awake and alert 24/7/365, but He’s always active in our lives, working everything out for our good (Romans 8:28).
As a human being, a mere mortal, there’s only so much I can do to help people until either my resources run out or I need to rest. And as a human with limited resources and a need to sleep every night, I can become exhausted and want to give up on a situation that’s not being resolved. But thank the Good God Almighty that HE never gives up on humankind! His resources are unlimited and He never becomes exhausted in His mission to not only help us but to save our souls!
The Bible says in Psalm 121:1 that our help comes from the Lord who is the Maker of Heaven and Earth. It’s important to remember that God made everything that exists and He knows exactly what we need! The Bible says in Philippians 4:19 that God will meet ALL of our needs!
In closing, I encourage you to go to the God who never sleeps and trust Him to take care of you!
Before you go to sleep tonight, listen to this beautiful song about Psalm 121.
