How well do you sleep? It may seem like a strange question, yet so much is spent on sleep aids, pills, beds, etc, that it’s hard to discount the fact that many people struggle to fall asleep, stay asleep, and feel refreshed from their sleep. Why is that? Read through Psalm chapter 4.
You have put gladness in my heart, More than when their grain and new wine abound. In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord , make me to dwell in safety.
Psalms 4:7-8 NASB
I know when I am lying awake during the night, I am often thinking about all the “worries” and anxieties that I see going on around me. God did not design us to spend all our time worrying about things, He designed us to bring our problems and worries to Him so He can take them. He makes us to dwell in safety and peace. He is the One that can overcome all that is coming our way. Do we rest in the gladness that He has put in our hearts? Do we lie down in peace and dwell in safety? If not, we need to come to Him and surrender to Him.
