Wake up, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Get up! Do not reject us forever. 24 Why do you look the other way? Why do you ignore our suffering and oppression? 25 We collapse in the dust, lying face down in the dirt. 26 Rise up! Help us! Ransom us because of your unfailing love.
I had to smile when I read this text. What utter despair, fear and frustration the writer must have been feeling to even insinuate that God was asleep.
Watching the news, reading the paper and even just living day-to-day there are moments when it may seem that God’s silence can leave us a wee bit panicky. Yet, when we read and study we realize that He never sleeps, He never slumbers, He is always watching, always in control and most of all He always loves us, even when we might have doubts.
Today, I am thanking God again for His unfailing love and faithfulness. For providing for each and every need, for calming hearts and most of all for the gift of Jesus.
Making His praise glorious!
