"God Awoke" Video Devotion
"God Awoke" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 78, verses 65 and 66. Does God sleep? Is there a time when God is not available to us because He is sleeping? No! Often, in the Bible, the writers will use a figure of speech to explain God's actions. By saying, "God Awoke," the Psalmist is illustrating the suddenness of God's response to His people. From a human perspective, it seemed to the nation of Israel that God was sleeping. However, we know that God never sleeps, and even the chastisement He sends in the form of persecution, plagues, or natural catastrophes is measured. In other words, nothing is truly removed from God's control. Though He may allow a time of persecution or testing, He never truly leaves or forsakes His children.
