Psalm 127:1-2 – Giving Sleep

Today’s Reading: 1 Kings 5:1‐6:38, Acts 7:1‐29, Psalm 127:1‐5, Proverbs 16:28‐30

Psalm 127:1-2 Unless the Lord builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain.
It is in vain that you rise up early
and go late to rest,
eating the bread of anxious toil;
for he gives to his beloved sleep.


  • God builds houses
  • God watches over cities
  • God gives sleep to his beloved
  • Our labor apart from God to build, watch, toil, and rest is in vain

Apply: I must realize that there is nothing I can do apart from God.  This is especially applicable to my family today.  Lord, give sleep to your beloved!

How do you insure that you are not doing work apart from God?
