Bible Verse:

Psalms 121:3-4 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. 4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.


Whether it is night or day God remains attentive to your every need evidenced by the fact that he never slumbers nor sleeps.


Psalms 121:3-4 remind us of two critical truths. The first is that it is the Lord who keeps us; by stating that it is the Lord that keepeth thee. It is interesting to note that It was alluding to more than God protecting us. What was being communicated by the scripture was that it is God who sustains us by providing for our every need. In fact, the first mention of the word “keep” in the Bible was in Genesis 2:5 and the context within which it was used was when Adam was given the responsibility to keep or sustain the Garden of Even. So the first truth that you should never forget is that you are not the one who keeps yourself, but it is the Lord who sustains you.


The second truth, which is equally important, is to know that as your sustainer God never slumbers nor sleeps. That means that God is always aware of your every need and circumstances. Your needs and circumstances will not escape his attention. Because that is true you can be assured that if you need provision, He will provide. If you need him to make a way, He will make a way. If you need a deliverer, He will deliver. Whatever your need is, God will do it because he is your sustainer.


Although God is your sustainer, that does not absolve you of your responsibilities. You have a responsibility to look to him for what you need; it is the proof that you believe in God. The proof that you believe God to be your sustainer is in you choosing to look to Him first during your times of need. It is with that in mind why the Psalmist started Psalms 121 by saying “I will look to the hills from whence cometh my help”. What the Psalmist was saying was that he will look to God first. And the confidence that the Psalmist had by doing that is knowing that God will always come through. Hence he said “he will not suffer thy foot to be moved”.


God is the source for every need that is in your life and those needs have not escaped His attention. Choose to look to Him by not only asking him for what you need, but also by pursuing what you are after in accordance to His word and principles.

Life Application:

Look to God to meet your needs by asking His involvement into your situation and doing it according to His word.


Prayer:

Lord, you are all that I need and more. I look to you for guidance, sustenance and to supply all my needs according to your riches in glory. In Jesus name, amen.
