He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps.Psalm 121: 3-4
The God Who Never Sleeps
Have you ever had a hard time sleeping at night? Maybe you just couldn’t turn your mind off. Maybe you just kept thinking about what you had to do the next day, or even worrying about something that was beyond your control. Well, the God of the universe never sleeps or slumbers. He doesn’t need to sleep. He is always active, watching over his people. What an intense thought! God is so in tune to our daily lives and cares so much about us, that he is constantly watching over us. His work is never done. He never calls it a day.
We must not think of God in human terms because He doesn’t act like we would act. There is only so much we can get done in a day and only so much we can do for other people. But God does not operate it like we do which is why He doesn’t require any rest or sleep. So the next time you are having trouble sleeping, just think that the God of the universe is acting right at that moment, working for you!
A Prayer to Remember
What an intense thought. You never sleep! It is such an encouraging thought to think that you are constantly working for my good. Thank you. Amen.
