Songs in the Night

“The dew fell  ...  in the night, [and] the manna fell upon it.” Numbers 11:99And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell upon it. (Numbers 11:9)
Nights can be long. Fretful babies or unfinished work can keep us awake when we long for sleep. But “He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep” (Psalm 121:44Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. (Psalm 121:4)), and the Lord always shares the night watches with us. He sends His blessings as well. He visits us in the night, speaking to us and leading us. We may not have time to listen in the day, but in the night, when no one else is clamoring for our attention, we can commune with Him. In those quiet hours He brings both light and songs to cheer us. We can silently sing melodies in our hearts and let their truths encourage us and bring us closer to Him. He sends dew in the night, along with manna to refresh and feed us. We might prefer to be sleeping, but we are not alone, and “when they were awake, they saw His glory” (Luke 9:3232But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him. (Luke 9:32))!
