Do You Need To Sleep?

Do you need to sleep? Does your body yearn for a good night's sleep?











Do you remember when you were little? Your mom wanted you to take a nap. Probably because you were cranky. What was your reaction to her? You, no doubt, fought against the thought of having to lay down. Am I right?





Oh, I remember those days so well. Now, however, I long to lie down. Although, I know that my body would fight against me. I might need the rest, but it would not come very easily.





I just want to go back in time and tell myself, as a little girl to enjoy the moments of rest while I can.










Let's look at Psalm 3:5 to see how the Lord blesses us with sleep and how he sustains us.




Psalm 3:5 NIV 




I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.



Sleep And Safety 





1. I am able to lie down




2. I am able to sleep




3. I am able to wake up again




4. The Lord sustains me




Whatever you are struggling with today, please know that you can turn it over to the Lord. He loves you so much that He provides for your sleep.










Prayer: 




Dear Father, 




Thank you for loving me so much that you allow me to lie down. Thank you for allowing me to be able to sleep. Thank you for helping me to wake up again. Thank you for sustaining me through everything that I do. In Jesus' name, Amen.
