"What's your key #?"

I never cease to be amazed how & where God speaks - we just need seeing eyes & hearing ears.*
I needed a spare key & the person helping me asked: "What's your key #?" in order to follow-up on my request. I checked and the number was "247." As I responded, the song that popped in my heart and out of my mouth was:


24-7 I will praise You Jehovah
24-7 I will praise Your Holy Name
Wondering what the point is?


As I repeated the number "247" the Holy Spirit gently reminded me that it was because the Lord watches over me 24-7** that I still have lockers and drawers that need to be opened with a key. In fact beyond that, that's why I'm still alive and well - He confirmed it on the evening of the day that I started writing this piece. Our God never sleeps nor slumbers - He never dozes or gets drowsy - join me in saying and singing:
“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side,” Let Israel now say, “If it had not been the Lord who was on our side When men rose up against us, Then they would have [quickly] swallowed us alive,When their wrath was kindled against us; Then the waters would have engulfed us, The torrent would have swept over our soul;Then the raging waters would have swept over our soul.” Blessed be the Lord, Who has not given us as prey to be torn by their teeth. 7 We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers; The trap is broken and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. (Ps 124 - AMP)
Our (MY) help is in the Name of the Lord - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5GfljAj6-0
Thank you Lord, that Your eyes and ears are "OPEN" 24-7.

** Ps 121 - I will lift up my eyes to the hills [of Jerusalem] - From where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. 3 He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Will neither slumber [briefly] nor sleep [soundly]. The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun will not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The Lord will protect you from all evil; He will keep your life. The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in [everything that you do] From this time forth and forever. (AMP - emphasis mine)
