Ever have trouble sleeping?
Sometimes I fall asleep at night but end up taking about a forty-five-minute nap and then I’m awake for hours. One of the things that helps me is to walk through the alphabet and attach several attributes or names for the Lord to each letter. It brings rest to my heart to be reminded that my Savior is so big one name cannot contain Him. He is more powerful than anyone or anything I face.
“My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises. Hear my voice in accordance with your love; preserve my life, Lord, according to your laws. Those who devise wicked schemes are near, but they are far from your law. Yet you are near, Lord, and all your commands are true. Long ago I learned from your statutes that you established them to last forever.”
His statutes are eternal. I can stand on them through everything I experience. I am safe in the shelter of His Word.
How I thank You, Jesus, that Your Word stands. Your promises bring me joy, comfort, and security.
