“Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” – Psalm 121:4
I heard about a man who was in a crisis and couldn’t sleep. He thought about this verse of Scripture, “He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” He said, “Well, Lord, there’s no need for both of us to stay up all night. Good night, Lord. I’m going to sleep while you stay awake.”
The Bible says, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee because he trusteth in Thee.” Isaiah 26:3
It may sound like a paradox: on one hand, pray earnestly. On the other, get some sleep. But Philippians 4:6-7 tells us, “Be careful for nothing” (that means don’t worry about anything) “but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God” (listen to it) “the peace of God which passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Friend, turn your problem over to Him. Roll it on the Lord. I don’t care how big it is. When you obey Philippians 4:6-7, God’s peace will have the mastery over your panic.
