He will not let your foot slip — he who watches over you will not slumber… — Psalm 121:3
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
I still remember when my children were little. I would sneak in and watch them sleep. Sometimes it was to check on them when they were sick. Sometimes it was to just sit and pray for them, joining the Lord as he watched over them while they slept. Sometimes it was to bathe myself in the grace and wonder of God’s love for giving me such blessings. Even now that they are much older, I still love to look in on them and pray, marveling at the wonder of these precious gifts from the Father. To know that my Abba Father looks at me in the same way, but with even greater delight and joy, fills me with unspeakable wonder.
Now I lay me down to sleep, and pray that you, O LORD, will keep me safely in your loving care, by always knowing you are there. Thank you for your grace and love, and for Jesus now above, to share with you my every care, who lets me know you’re always there. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
