A friend of mine wrote on his Facebook status – ”My friend wrote: Does God sleep? What the Bible says ‘Then the Lord awake from sleep, as a man wakes from the stupor of wine(Ps78:65). awake oh Lord why do you sleep? Rouse yourself!(Ps44:23). What the quran says ‘…one who protects all that exists. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes him…


Well, There are two things that might have prompted this my friend to repost these words; either he is an illiterate with zero knowledge of poetry or he is merely being prejudicial. The Book of Psalms is a poetry book with rich use of figures of speech. Psalm 78:2 says ‘The Lord awoke as from sleep’ Does that not sound as simile being used by a man in pain and anguish??? Psalm78:2 is pre-emptive … I will open my mouth in parables. I will utter hidden things, things from the old… I will suggest that you read the whole chapter to have a glimpse of what its all about.

It takes Divine Wisdom that comes only from Our Lord Jesus Christ to fully comprehend the Bible!

God never sleep nor slumber


121 I lift up my eyes to the hills —
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip —
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord watches over you —
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord will keep you from all harm —
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Jesus is The Way

We serve a living God. Halleluyah!
