The bleary eyes of a new parent often reflect the night before. The tiniest squeak has the parents awake as they make sure their little baby is fed, dry and comfortable. Their own sleep forgotten, parents see to their baby’s every need.
When I have a need, I have only to lift up my eyes and remember who my Father is, and remember that He who watches over me does not sleep. He watches over my coming and my going and He is there for my every need.
“I lift up my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip-he who watches over you will not slumber, indeed he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you-the Lord is your shade at your right hand, the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm-he will watch over your life, the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forever more.”
