Blessed Redeemer, who is like unto Thee, thank You, Father for the gift of life, we are grateful unto You. You are the Lord that answers prayer. You said ask in my Name and You will answer. Glory be to Lord!
My father keep watch over His own, over His children what a good thing to be happy about. He Who keepeth you neither slumber nor sleep. So you and I can have our sleep and fear not what the devil and his agent are doing.
Another good thing to be happy about is that sanctified soul are satisfied soul. Do you agree with me? If you want to find out “HOW” Come alone.
“Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” Ps. 121:4
Jehovah is “the Keeper of Israel.” No form of unconsciousness ever steals over Him, neither the deeper slumber nor the slighter sleep. He never fails to watch the house and the heart of His people. This is a sufficient reason for our resting in perfect peace. Alexander said that he slept because his friend Parmenio watched; much more may we sleep because our God is our guard.
“Behold” is here set up to call our attention to the cheering truth. Israel, when he had a stone for his pillow, fell asleep; but His God was awake, and came in vision to His servant. When we lie defenseless, Jehovah Himself will cover our head.
The Lord keeps His people as a rich man keeps his treasure, as a captain keeps a city with a garrison, as a sentry keeps watch over his sovereign. None can harm those who are in such keeping. Let me put my soul into His dear hands. He never forgets us, never ceases actively to care for us, never finds Himself unable to preserve us.
O my Lord, keep me, lest I wander and fall and perish. Keep me, that I may keep thy commandments. By thine unslumbering care prevent my sleeping like the sluggard, and perishing like those who sleep the sleep of death. We will not sleep the sleep of death in Jesus Name. Amen! Let us consider another promise from our Father:
“My people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the Lord.” Jer. 31:14
Note the “my” which comes twice: “My people shall be satisfied with my goodness.”
The kind of people who are satisfied with God are marked out as God’s own. He is pleased with them, for they are pleased with Him. They call Him their God, and He calls them His people; He is satisfied to take them for a portion, and they are satisfied with Him for their portion. There is a mutual communion of delight between God’s Israel and Israel’s God.
These people are satisfied. This is a grand thing. Very few of the sons of men are ever satisfied, let their lot be what it may; they have swallowed the horse-leech, and it continually cries, “Give! give!” Only sanctified souls are satisfied souls. God Himself must both convert us and content us. For he knows what you actually need (Matt 6:8b)
It is no wonder that the Lord’s people should be satisfied with the goodness of their Lord. Here is goodness without mixture, bounty without stint, mercy without chiding, love without change, favor without reserve. If God’s goodness does not satisfy us, what will? What! Are we still groaning? Surely there is a wrong desire within if it be one which God’s goodness does not satisfy. Lord, I am satisfied. Blessed be thy name.
What is it you are believing God for that is yet to happen, the secret of getting it is by thanking God for those ones He has done and you will see the expected begin to happen. Praise the Lord.
Are you ready to break forth into singing and praising? The God of David, Paul and Silas, will answer today. Don’t give up beloved; He will show up!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
