God Doesn’t Go on Vacation


God doesn’t go on vacation.  It is a rather comforting thought, isn’t it?  Oh, there are times we may feel He is absent or even accuse Him of not caring.  But people of faith believe that God is with us despite our feelings and circumstances. 

God doesn’t go on vacation.  Even though God is a Sabbath-keeper, and He rests, God is not withdrawn as the Ruler of the Universe.  The Scriptures declare, “He who watches over you will not sleep.”  [Psalm 121:3]

So as you plan your “down time” this summer, be assured that as you rest God will guide you and protect you and bless you.  You may even want to consider including God in your plans!   Psalm 121 says, in verses 7 and 8:  “The Lord will keep you from all harm – he will watch over your life;  the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”

You and I may go on vacation, but God doesn’t go on vacation!

Your brother in Christ,


The Rev. Christopher P. Leighton
