Here at Asbury, we are in the midst of our 52 Weeks, 52 Verses. In 2015 we are going to be learning a different verse of the Bible each week, and over the course of the year, together we will come to a deeper and fuller understand of God’s word.
As we take time to memorize it, God’s Word becomes a deeper part of our heart and we are able to call upon it in times of need. It just becomes part of faith; part of us.
This week we are learning the next portion of Psalm 121. This week we learn Psalm 121:3-4:
3 He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
In the Bible times, the night was a scary time. It was a time of fear, a time when bad things happen, when robbers were out when dangerous animals were on the prowl. There were many Christian prayers that we have from these times which have the sole purpose of thanking God for surviving the night.
So with the night being so scary, how comforting is it to hear the words of this Psalm. The Lord neither slumbers nor sleeps. He is awake. He is aware.
He is protecting you.
He is with you.
So, sleep easy. Because God is with you. Don’t be afraid. The Lord neither slumbers nor sleeps. He is present and He is watching.
Have no fear.
