My dear Brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given you for 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.”
My dear Brothers and Sisters, from the above passage we come to understand that King Solomon told his son, to keep sound wisdom and discretion knowing that they give many benefits to men. When you lie down on your bed at night in order to take sleep then commit yourself into the hands of a faithful creator, and Covenant God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Redeemer and wisdom of God. Then you shall not be afraid, of thieves breaking in to hurt you, or rob you of the prosperity. You shall not be terrified with uneasy imaginations, anxious cares and distressing dreams while you are asleep. For He that keeps Israel, and every true born Israelite, neither slumbers nor sleeps. Since you have committed yourself and taken shelter under the shadow, of His wings.
The psalmist says, For You alone O Lord make me dwell in safety. For the Bible says, the sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eats little or much. When we walk according to the ways of God and not allow the words of Christ to depart from us. Then your life and all that belongs to you shall be under the protection of His grace. Yes, you shall lie down. And you need not to sit up to keep guard, instead you shall sleep and not keep awake due to fear. Yes, Your sleep shall be sweet. Refreshing to thee and not being disturbed by any alarms.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, For the Lord shall be your confidence and shall keep your foot from falling. Hallelujah! Some of you are suffering from sorrowful sleep. Due to sorrowful sleep you dampen your bed with tears. You must be weeping all the time in the night hours due to the problems you face in your daily life. Hereafter God will give you sweet sleep. He will deliver you from all your problems. No evil spirit can take hold of you if you surrender your life to God. He knows all your problems even before you could tell them. God will give you peace and rest to your eyes if Gods presence abides with you. When you commit your ways unto the Lord then you will sleep in peace and live in safety.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord thank You for assuring us with sound and sweet sleep. Help us not to be afraid or be worried over the things that trouble us during the day. May we trust in the Lord who neither sleeps nor slumbers and who remains as our confidence. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
