Neither Sleep Nor Slumber

Sometimes you may feel like the Lord has fallen asleep on you. The Psalmist called the Lord to arise from slumber, so we know this is a human thought. But the Bible tells us that the Lord neither sleeps nor slumbers. He is always awake, always vigilant.
         That is so that He can watch out for you, like the Prodigal Father, who lavished His returning son with precious things. He killed the fatted calf, gave him a signet ring, put a robe on him and sent out the special guest invitations. Time for a feast.

         Our Lord is not sleeping. He has been preparing a feast for you. Come and eat.
