Little Lacy had finished her night time prayers with her mother. As she pulled the sheets up tightly under her chin, her mother turned off the light.
Looking out her window she said, “Mom, the moon is shining in my room. Is it God’s light?”
“Yes,” replied her mother.
“Will God turn out His light, too?” she asked.
“Oh, no!” came the reply. “The Bible promises us that He never goes to sleep.”
God’s Word gives us the assurance and hope, confidence and confirmation that He protects us day and night. Not only did God make the heavens and the hills, the earth and the sky but gave us a guarantee that He will protect us from anything that would destroy us. We are often tempted to trust in ourselves and the riches of this world, but then we are reminded of the poor decisions we make and the failures of the best laid schemes we could design.
It is important that we remind ourselves that the God Who created the universe is the God Who created us and watches over every detail of our lives. Nothing ever causes Him to forget us or lose sight of us and our special needs. We are always safe in His hands and protected by His power. We never outgrow our need for His attentive eye or His ear that is listening for our voice.
Prayer: We are grateful, Father, that You are always watching, never sleeping, and continually protecting us every day and every night of our lives. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 121 he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
