He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber.

Psalm 121:3

We know what sleep is for: recovery. We expend energy simply going about our day and then, when the night comes, we stop when there is no light for work and we sleep to be ready for the next day.

What an interesting picture of God then, the ever-wakeful watchman, not suffering from sleeplessness but abounding in energy. Never tiring or resenting his watch, simply remaining vigilant for our sakes. Feeling sleepless? Rest easy, God is on guard duty.
