That’s a question that children sometimes ask. Does He get tired? Maybe He sleeps with one eye open and the other closed.
Unlike humans, God does not sleep nor does He get tired. He is always alert and ready for anything that is happening in His universe. That’s why we can call on Him at all hours of the day or night.
Psalm 121 has some very comforting words:
“I lift up my eyes to the mountainsâ€”where does my help come from?
My help comes from theÂ Lord,Â the Maker of heavenÂ and earth.
He will not let your foot slipâ€”He who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, He who watchesÂ over IsraelÂ will neither slumber nor sleep.
TheÂ LordÂ watches overÂ you –Â theÂ LordÂ is your shade at your right hand;
the sunÂ will not harm you by day,Â nor the moon by night.
TheÂ LordÂ will keep you from all harmÂ â€”He will watch over your life;
TheÂ LordÂ will watch over your coming and goingÂ both now and forevermore.”
What a fantastic promise! If only more humans took care of each other in this way. Looking out for one another so no harm would happen to others in words, thoughts or actions would certainly make this world a lot happier and safer to live in.
