He Gives His Beloved SleepWednesday, May 18, 2016
“It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep.”
When it says that God gives His beloved sleep, I believe it. There are no strings attached there. It doesn’t say He gives His beloved sleep ONLY if you’re in a nice comfortable bed. He gives His beloved sleep wherever and whenever you need it, EVEN in the midst of a raging storm!
Do you remember when Jesus and the disciples were on the boat and the storm came!? JESUS WAS SLEEPING! He wasn’t worried about a thing, He knew they were going to be fine. He knew everything was taken care of. There was a storm RAGING around Him, and yet He was sleeping. He wasn’t going to let anything happen to His disciples. When Jesus said to cast your cares upon Him, He meant it.
So many Christians are up at night worrying about their lives. Instead of lying awake at night anxious, give it all to God. We serve such a sweet Father, He has good things in store for you and that includes a restful night’s sleep.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
