It’s late and I’m thinking of going to sleep soon.
In about seven hours it will be time to get out of bed and start a new day.
During those seven hours, my mind will be lost in dreams as I rest and recuperate.
While I am resting, God will be awake—all night.
He will not be sleeping or lost in dreams, unavailable to care for me.
With a continual, unending attention to all that He has created, God never slumbers.
He watches over me when I am awake AND when I am asleep.
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
