    Its one of my favourite psalm. As long as we put our trust in God not in man.He will bring every thing concerning us to perfection. It reminds us of His greatness that He never sleeps nor slumbers. He is the Mighty one of His people Israel. If you are picking on Israel watch out, for God will get ya.
