Psalm 3:5 - I wake again, because the LORD sustains me

NIV I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
KJV I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
NASBI lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the LORD sustains me.

Psalm 3:5


Given the stress that David faced, it is remarkable that he was able to enjoy a night's rest. This was possible only because of God's sustaining power. God's gift of rest may be given even in the most troubling times. I will not be afraid: When God is one's protector, there is no need to fear (23:4; 27:3; 118:6).
