“He who keeps you will not slumber…nor sleep.Psalm 121:3,4

What would happen if a person working in the control tower of a busy airport would fall asleep? Disaster. Or if anyone in a position of public service would snooze off on the job? Danger. There’s a time to sleep and a time to be awake and alert. People who are responsible for the well-being of others can’t be caught sleeping.

God is in control of everything in the universe. He’s in control of our lives, and He never sleeps on the job.

God was not sleeping when you got out of bed today to face a new day.

God was not sleeping when you got those bad test results, or when tragedy turned your life upside down.

God was not sleeping when you lost your job, your life’s savings, your home or your business.

God was not sleeping when you were falsely accused, or when a love one betrayed you.

God is not sleeping, even if your prayer is still unanswered.

You can rest assured, because God never sleeps.

Whatever your situation today, praise God that He will complete the good work He started in you, (Philippians 1:6) and rest in Him. He is not sleeping!

    So thankful that our God never sleeps! I am also thankful that He gave us the time to sleep! (And we can certainly peacefully sleep knowing that God is ALWAYS in control, and we don’t have to be,)
