Love Does Not Sleep

God does not slumber. "He will not suffer thy foot to be moved." In the Hebrew language, the word "slumber" means passivity. Perhaps, your foot has slipped in the past, but now because you are saved God will not allow it to be moved. Why live in the memories and sorrows of yesterday when God is keeping you and preserving you? There is no question about God's keeping power. Once you have been placed into Christ's redemption, God will continually declare unto you your immovability. He is not sleeping nor is He passive. Why should we be conscious of self when we can have His image?

Jesus Christ preserves us from all evil because He is love. Love is free from evil because it is always overcoming evil with itself. Rather than love being passive and a place for evil to inhabit, love never gives place because of its character. Why should we become occupied with, or afraid of evil? God does not have to prove love or grace or righteousness.

Whether it is known or not, God is love and grace and righteousness. We become love as we receive all that God is. If we think in terms of love, then the glory fills our tabernacle because of the Finished Work. Just as Moses could not enter the Tabernacle when the glory filled it, even so it is with us. What do we need to know? Not an analysis of who we are in self-consciousness, but a revelation of Christ in God's life. God never saved us to serve our own interest, but to think in terms of love and minister who we are.
