Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Proverbs 3:24, “When you lie down, you will not be afraid; Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet.”
Now-a-days, many people get afraid to sleep alone in a room at night. This happens when a man is possessed with the spirit of fear. How can you change this situation? The bible says, the Holy Spirit is the Lord who makes you bold. Today, when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, all the evil spirits within you will leave. Many children get afraid when they sleep; even a small child, while asleep, they see bad dreams and wake up in fear and start to scream. Because of that, they child might be crying all night. The devil does not even let go of the children too. Today the Lord is willing to put a special hedge around you to protect you, your home and your family. God expects His children to be as bold as a Lion.
The bible tells us that we should not possess the spirit of fear but the spirit of boldness. We see many elders and youngsters waking up in the middle of their sleep and crying in fear. It is the devil who brings fear upon a man. When a man gets afraid, it is clearly visible that he is moving away from his faith on God. To give you fear and to keep you away from the Lord and to kill you is the plan of the evil spirit.
Some children would have taken debts, and would be struggling to face the debtor. Some children might get just a heat boil but they fear thinking that it might be some sort of cancer boil. Some children panic on seeing the exam question paper. In this life You will have to face problems, sicknesses, challenges and people will rise against you. When will there be an end to all these problems? The Lord says that He is planning to bring an end to all such fears in your life. John 14:27 says, “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Even now as you read this passage, the Lord is removing the spirit of fear and is giving you the spirit of boldness.
Was it fear that disturbed you? Has it been a long time since you slept peacefully? The children of God must not go to bed with any fear. You should not drench your pillows with tears. Today is the day of your deliverance. From this day forth, your sleep shall be sweet to you.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord, You know how much my children have suffered because of their sleepless nights. The spirit of fear has gripped their hearts and they get very afraid at night. Even the small kids at home get very disturbed because of bad dreams. I pray that You may cast the spirit of fear away and may their sleep be sweet. Be with them, protect them and bless them with sound sleep. In Jesus name we pray,
