God is Watching Over You

Psalm 121:3-6 God Never SleepsWhat an incredible comfort and blessing!  God watches over us. We need sleep. Many flowers close up at night for protection and rest. Many animals seek cover at night and rest, or if they are “night owls”, the rest during the day. But we have the wonderful knowledge that God NEVER SLEEPS. He is constantly watching over each one of us. Not just in the small town of Palo, or the larger metropolis of Cedar Rapids, or even just the United States. God watches the entire UNIVERSE.  Nothing is out of His control!

I just finished The Quest for Serenity by G.H. Morling and he ends the book with these reminders:

  • Begin the day remembering you are loved and chosen by God. He is your Creator and you belong to Him.
  • In order to maintain tranquility throughout the day – RELAX. It is a skill that we must accomplish – learn to relax. It is necessary for a REST-FILLED day.
  • Live with a heart filled with JOY and PRAISE. Look for the good things in life each day – sunshine, breath, birds singing …
  • Don’t be anxious, filled with worry. Surrender your concerns to God remembering He is in control of all things. “Take definite action about your worry. Tell yourself that it is futile and wasteful and even sinful (when continually rehashing something) because it denies the care of your Heavenly Father.”
  • End the day with sleep that is filled with rest from God.  Can’t fall asleep – remember these words which bring perspective, “What helped me to pass wakeful hours was just remembering the Insomnia of God:  Behold He that keepeth Israel – He slumbers not, nor sleeps.”

May your day be filled with the blessings of remembering our God is a 24/7/365 day God ~ Faye
