Day #5 - He Will Not Slumber

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

Psalm 121 (NIV)

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;

indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;

the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;

the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Reflection

The Psalmist was lifting his eyes to the mountains and seeing the idolatry all around him – the “high places” where false gods were worshiped and people turned away from the Lord. He knew that his only hope was the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. The Lord neither sleeps nor slumbers!  He is not like us who tires, wearies, and loses heart.  The Lord is always at work, and this is our sure assurance!

Response

As we look around us in our own lives and see the idols or things that draw our affection and trust away from the Lord, may we live like the Psalmist and confess that our only hope is the Lord. Our help comes from Him who never sleeps. When we get tired and discouraged, let’s trust in the One who always watches over our lives and keeps us from all harm. Let’s thank God because He is with us and we can turn to Him at any time.
