Psalm 3:5: The Lord Sustains Me

Sunday, July 7, 2019

Psalm 3:5I lie down and go to sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.

There is nothing more we need remember when we put head to pillow to sleep, or when we rise in the morning to begin our day.  In the nighttime, God guards us as the pillar of fire watched over the Hebrews in their exodus from Egypt.  In the daytime, the pillar of smoke leads us as we weave among the perils and hazards of life.

God says:  Despite what you may feel at times, I really do listen to you, I really do watch over you, I protect you from the things and people who will destroy you entirely.  I guide your feet on their path.  If you follow me, you will not be lost.  I bring you the bread and wine that sustain just as I sent manna and water to my people when they crossed the desert.  You cross your own desert . . . and I am with you.  Look for the column of smoke and follow.  Lie down when the smoke turns to fire; it will keep you warm from the cold of the desert nights.  Rise again with the morning light.  Follow the column again.  I am with you always.

Wishing you warmth in the cold of the desert.  Stay well . . .
