THERE AIN’T NO REST FOR THE WICKED…SO YOU SHOULD PROBABLY TAKE A NAP
PSALM 127:2 The Lord gives sleep to those He loves.
Join Sandy and Elisabeth as they discuss the importance of sleep, what the Bible says about sleep, what to do when you can’t sleep and the examples that Jesus gave us as he walked the Earth in human form.
WE WERE MADE TO SLEEP:
- If we believe that we were created as an intelligent design by an Almighty God, then we must also believe that He new what He was doing.
- He made our bodies to need sleep.
- It is a time of rest and recovery.
- It is when vital functions are happening to heal our bodies.
- Lack of sleep is linked to disease and death
PROVERBS [3:21]-24 My child, hold on to wisdom and good sense. Don’t let them out of your sight. … When you lie down, you will sleep in peace.
It literally makes you able to think and process things more clearly. It is essential to be able to carry out our duties as humans and our mission as Christians.
MARK [4:38] Jesus was at the stern of the boat sleeping on a cushion.
JOHN 4:6 Jesus was tired from the journey so he sat down beside the well.
You have our permission to pause the episode now and go take a nap … but come back because there’s more good stuff at the end.
WHEN SLEEP WON’T COME:
PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7 Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks. And God’s peace, which is so great we cannot comprehend it, will keep your hearts and minds in Jesus Christ.
When sleep won’t come, pray. It’s really that simple. Ask God for what you need, thank Him for what you have.
But pay attention to the Scripture here because He does NOT promise that everything will be magically better in the morning, what He promises is peace.
SLEEP IS A BLESSING. BE THANKFUL FOR IT. EMBRACE IT.
If you’re worried and you can’t sleep,
Count your blessings instead of sheep.
And you’ll fall asleep, counting your blessings.
