“Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” Psalm 121:4
“Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.”
This Psalm gives us the assurance that the Lord is not like the night watchman. He doesn’t sleep and he doesn’t even doze off. He is paying attention to what goes on in your life. Do you believe it? Do you ask Him to watch out for you and then expect Him to do it?
We all battle with the problem of worry. Fears about the future gradually creep in. Then they get stronger and stronger, and can eventually become overwhelming. This happens when we begin to replace our faith with anxiety, shifting the burden from God’s strong shoulders to our frail ones. We fret. We’re afraid. We can’t sleep.
At times like this we need to remind ourselves that God is always on the alert. He never sleeps. He knows everything, including what we fear (Psalm 44:21). He is everywhere (Psalm 139:7-10). He is in charge of our world (Ephesians 1:11). Therefore, we do not need to be afraid.
Do you really believe that God sees all, knows all, is all-powerful, and is in control? Then put your cares in His hands. Entrust Him with whatever it is that’s keeping you awake at night. He’ll take care of it. He’s the One who never slumbers nor sleeps.
He constantly reassures us when our difficulties are the greatest. He assures us more than onetime and in a variety of ways. He has extended His help to each of us if we will believe it.
