Psalm 121:4 – “Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.”
Have you ever seen, especially in a very hot day, drivers inside their parked cars, with the windows rolled down, taking a nap? Or even at night, when you are about to enter a gated area, a security person quickly waking up from a nap, just in time to open the gate for you?
Rest assured that our God does not take naps! Yes, you can rest, take naps, fall into a deep sleep, because He who watches over you does not sleep! Our God does not neglect us! He does not suddenly wake up to realize that He missed something! No! He does not miss a thing!
Psalm 121 has a beautiful promise of protection, deliverance and is accessible to all who believe. Whether we are facing trouble or hardship, whether we are about to fall on a trap or living in a period of spiritual dryness – or facing threats that put our lives at risk, no matter what the situation, our God, the Maker of heaven and earth is in full control of us, He is constantly keeping watch over us, and He will keep us from all harm, both now and forevermore!
If you are experiencing despair and need help, lift your eyes to the hills – to heaven – look upwards – because your help will come from above! Look above your circumstance and situation, above your illness, your trials, your needs!
Look up and “make the Most High your dwelling. He is your refuge, no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. For He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. The Most High will be with you in trouble, He will deliver you, honor you, and save you!”
