Assurance Of All Round Safety

Words In Season:
As we snore away after the day's work, God is still awake and at work, securing our all round safety and protection.
The King's Scribe

"Behold He that keepeth Isreal shall neither slumber nor sleep"
Psalm 121:4

The duck is an avian creature that doesn't sleep, at night. It may doze off a bit at day time but never at night.
The duck can not walk straight like other animals but limps from left to right when walking. Not because it has a wound but that is how it was permanently made The Creator. Therefore it can not run, much more of sprinting like other birds. Thank God, Who endowed it with ability to fly in case danger comes too close for comfort. Even at that it has to take some short limping steps before gathering momentum to spread those wings! Now at night, spreading it wings fast at the onset of danger may be needed. In addition she has a band of children to protect, even if she flies, how would those young ones who cannot fly cope? So she has no choice than stay awake!
At the breath of His nostrils God can consume all the armies of the world put together. So He has no one to run from. Much more of taking flight. There none that can scare Him to the extent of staying awake all night. But He has you and I to protect. And He's got to be awake to His responsibility as a Father. For your sake and mine, He would neither sleep nor slumber, while on our part we are deep asleep. Some even snoring! What then shall we offer to this kind of a God so caring for His own to neither sleep nor slumber? Thanking and praising Him all the day long, may not be enough. We can only do them and keep doing them the more and the more. And to appreciate this His selfless further, the best we can is to simply live for Him. Live all our lives for Him and all that will bring Him glory and honour and pleasure. And keep off any thing that will dispease or grieve Him.
Bob Gass in Word for today defined holyness as consciousness of what pleases and offends God. I defined mine mine as being mindful of what He allows and forbids. Sin does not give God glory and honour. Rather, it grieves Him and His Spirit. And that is not the best way to repay Someone Who neither sleeps nor slumber to keep you safe and secure. Especially at these perilous times and season!
Repent of your sins and believe on Jesus now and confess Him as Lord and saviour and He will save you from your sins, just as He saved us from ours. For all have sinned and come short of God's glory. But He alone is able to save to the uttermost, all that come to God by Him.
