Psalm 121 is my go to scripture. The words in this chapter were placed there just for me. They were so vital to me several years ago when I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. With this illness came a sleep disorder that haunted me for almost two years. Insomnia is a beast to be reckoned with. A friend pointed me to these scriptures and I was able to draw such strength from them. When I was lying awake at night unable to sleep I would repeat this verses over and over... vs 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. vs 4 Behold he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber not sleep. vs 5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. vs 6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
Wow. HE will not slumber or sleep.The LORD is my keeper, my shade. The sun nor the moon will not smite me. Are you getting this? Why should I lay there awake when HE is awake. He is MY keeper. Amen!!! These verses quicken my heart every time I think on them. I can always go right back to that time when I couldn't sleep and remember quoting these scriptures over and over and remember the peace that came over me until I would eventually doze off. I'm so thankful for God's Word and that He cares enough about me to stay awake all day and night caring for me so I can have a restful nights sleep.
Thank you Lord for your precious Word. Thank you for your peace that passes all understanding. Amen.
This song is sung by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir and it is one of my all time favorites. I hope it blesses you as much it does me.
Have a happy and restful weekend. Until we meet again, Fifi
