I’ve had the first part of Psalm 127 in my head the last few days. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that this is a Psalm by Solomon – the king who asked God for wisdom above everything else.
“If the Lord doesn’t build the house, the builders are working for nothing. If the Lord doesn’t guard the city, the guards are watching for nothing. It is no use for you to get up early and stay up late, working for a living. The Lord gives sleep to those He loves” (verses 1 and 2, New Century Version). You know when you come home, snuggle up in bed and escape into sleep? You can do that because God loves you, so I’ve chosen this song today as a reminder that every day is a gift from Him.
The song is by Fernando Ortega. He does some good songs and has one of those very recognisable voices, so if I hear one on the radio and think it’s by him, it usually is.
