In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe. Psalm 4:8 NLT
Sometimes faith becomes weathered in doubt. Anxious thoughts steal our calm. We long to find comfort and rest. But at the end of the day, God knows how to bring PEACE to our souls. He covers us with a blanket of love and cradles us in His presence.
In quiet moments of surrender, God takes what needs to be released. He silences the distractions and hears our prayers for PEACE. As we pray with a humble heart, He prepares us to fall asleep.
The Bible says, “Don’t be anxious about TOMORROW. God will take care of your tomorrow too. Live one day at a time. Matthew 6:34 TLB
Each day God opens our eyes, He wakes us to discover what happens next. He helps us learn to be faithful. He manages our days. He guides and provides and gives STRENGTH to keep on going. He readies us to handle every single thing.
God is SO MUCH BIGGER THAN OUR WORRIES! We must refuse to let fear consume us, acknowledge what we feel and BELIEVE God will take care of everything we need. "Worry will not take away tomorrows troubles, it will take away today's peace." We must focus on who is working for the good and remember to faithfully TRUST.
When it's time to go to sleep, God will close our eyes and hear our prayers while we’re calmed in His holiness. What better way to be readied to rest; tethered by the promise of our Father’s love and safely held by His faithfulness. ♥
Dear God, You know the plans you have for each one of us. Fill our hearts with calm as we gratefully find rest in You. Help us remember who's in charge of ALL things. We will sleep in PEACE and remember You are so much bigger than anything we will face tomorrow. Thank you, Father! Thank you for the power of Your love. Amen
