He will not let you stumble; the One who watches over you will not slumber. Psalm 121:3
We covered this single verse in our Ladies' Bible Study in the store this morning. This single verse and the short Psalm it is part of is packed with goodness.
HE isn't going to let us stumble because HE is the rock upon which we should build our house. His truth is the cornerstone. Jesus Christ was laid as the foundation.
The foundation doesn't sleep. He "keeps" us by watching over us, guarding us, and protecting us.
I closed the teaching this morning with a funny little saying that has been floating around the internet for a while: "Since God neither slumbers nor sleeps, there's no point both of you staying awake. Go to bed and leave it to God!"
Jesus repeated his teachings often with His followers. As believers, we are His kids and have to be reminded often of the same truths. Over and over. God often has to remind me of what I teach. And to PRACTICE what I teach.
So, the sweet older gentleman that brought me a hand drawn picture some time ago, came back this morning with a new one. He told me that he draws pictures and gives them out as God leads......
And, oh boy, is God leading this sweet, sweet man....
