“He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep” (Psalm 121:3-4).
Alexander III of Macedon, better known as Alexander the Great, conquered Persia under the rule of Darius III in 334 BC. During his quest to conquer and rule most of the civilized world, this son of King Philip II was loathed by many a man across Asia. Knowing his father had been assassinated and that his life also lay in jeopardy, every night when he closed his eyes he was asked, “How do you sleep at night?”
His reply was simply, “Because my guards do not sleep.”
