A God Who Never Sleeps!

Rodney Nulph

A song that is found in many of
our different hymn books has a line that goes something like this, "There's an
all-seeing eye watching you, everyday mind the course you pursue." The
ever-present eye of God is an irrefutable fact. The Psalmist rhetorically asked,
"Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy
presence?" (Psalm 139:7).

"He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who
keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep" (Psalm 121:3b-4).

While God's
omniscience and omnipresence are known facts, sometimes we may forget these
attributes of God, especially when we find ourselves in difficult times. The
prophet Habakkuk seemed to have forgotten about the awesome fact that God is
everywhere, all the time and His power never wanes, nor does He sleep! Habakkuk
felt as though God was not hearing his pleas and may have even forgotten about
the heinous sins that Judah was committing (Habakkuk 1:2-4).

In this interesting
dialogue between the prophet and God, God reminded Habakkuk that although it
may seem that He was not active. Such is never the case! God answered Habakkuk (1:5-11) and
powerfully reminded him that He sees all, knows all and will vindicate the righteous
and bring vengeance upon the unrighteous.

Just exactly Who
is this God Who never sleeps?                                   

He Is Amazing

"Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvelously: for I will work a work in
days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you " (Habakkuk 1:5).

Mankind simply always see the
continuous activity of God. When life's burdens press down, we far too often
forget that God is still there and is still at work. Even as Habakkuk's faith
was faltering because he felt as though God was not listening, God was busy fashioning
the events on earth to complete His very plans.These plans were so amazing that
Habakkuk would be "utterly astounded" (NKJV). We must always remember that God
not settle all of His accounts on Friday! There is never a time when God is not in
control of everything this world can possibly muster up. He is amazing!

He Is Authoritative                                                                                                                                            

"For, lo, I raise
up the Chaldeans..." (Habakkuk 1:6a).

God was the authority and power behind
this destruction. The Chaldeans (i.e. Babylonians), surely thought they were the
authority and that they were determining the fate of Judah, but such was not the case! We,
like Habakkuk, sometimes forget that it is God Almighty that rules among the nations, or as
the Psalmist would pen, "He is the governor among the nations" (Psalm 22:28).

is no power except that which comes from God (Romans 13:1). Jesus reminded Pontius
Pilate, "...Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from
above...." (John 19:11).

God is authoritative!                          

He Is Able                                                                                                                                                           

"Art thou not from everlasting, O Lord my God, mine Holy One? We
shall not die. O Lord, thou hast ordained them for judgment; and, O mighty God,
thou hast established them for
correction" (Habakkuk 1:12).

Like Habakkuk, we must recount and remember that
the God we serve is more than able to handle the world He created. God does not
need our input or "wisdom"! Job was quickly reminded of that fact when he
questioned God (Job 38-41).

I love
how Paul penned it. "Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly
above all we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us"
(Ephesians 3:20).

God is able because He is "strong and mighty" (Psalm 24:8),
because power belongs to Him (Psalm 62:11) and He is abundant in strength
(Psalm 147:5).

Whether man recognizes it or not, God is able! How often do we fail
to recognize that no matter what this life brings, God is bigger! Our humanity,
like Habakkuk's humanity, sometimes forgets the amazing nature of God; we
sometimes fail to call to mind the authoritative power of God, and
we sometimes even go so far as to forget the ability of the God we serve. Dear
reader, there is simply nothing too big for God!

May we face life's struggles with confidence
because our God
never sleeps!
