He will not allow your foot to slip;
your Protector will not slumber.
Indeed, the Protector of Israel
does not slumber or sleep.
– Psalm 121:3-4
I came upon this Bible verse this morning and it really spoke to me. I have encountered some people lately who are on a bad path, and it reminded me of where I could be today if it weren’t for the grace of God. Looking back at my life, I remember making so many bad choices. The only reason that I am where I am right now is because God was watching over me. He was with me every step of the way, pulling me out of the pit over and over again.
If you’re struggling right now, I want to encourage you: just trust in Jesus. He’ll get you right where you need to be. He doesn’t rest or sleep or take a break from taking care of you. Even if you’re making bad choices like I did, he’ll use those bad choices for good if you let him.
It’s such a relief to just believe in him. Believe that he is Jehovah Rahh (our shepherd), Jehovah Rapha (our healer), Jehovah Shammah (he is here), Jehovah Jireh (he will provide), and Jehovah Shalom (he is peace).
He is all of those things and more.
