In this day and age with viruses increasing daily and lock down lasting months, sleep is very important to our wellbeing. God promises to give blessings to His beloved in their sleep! He wants you to rest securely in Him and be rejuvenated nightly, mind and body. Sleep has great benefits – it builds your immune system, it decreases your stress and it increases productivity.
Did you know sleep is so important not only to our physical health, but also our spiritual wellbeing? When we are well rested, we are better able to deal with the trials that come our way. Itâ€™s easier to keep our hearts and minds in the right place, so we can stand stronger and make better spiritual decisions.
Today, you may be struggling with sleep, ask God to show you what you need to do to get back on track. Do you have cares you need to cast on Him? Are you worrying instead of worshiping? Has a spirit of fear crept in? Do you need to make better decisions about what time to go to bed? Remember, He said He will give you peace when you lie down, He wants you to be rested. He wants you to be rejuvenated and revived so that you can be the best you!
â€œIn peace I will both lie down and sleep; for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.â€Â
(Psalm 4:8, ESV)Â
Yahweh, thank You for giving me the gift of sleep so I can be at peace, revived and rejuvenated. Father, help me to cast my cares on You daily. Teach me to make it a priority to stay well rested, so I can live the life physically and spiritually that You have designed for me, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
