Free to Lie Down and Sleep

Desert sunriset

 

Do you have trouble sleeping? Are you laying down in peace? Peace is an important factor to finding restful sleep.

“I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for You, LORD, only make me dwell in safety” (Psalm 4:8).

You can’t sleep well if you are worrying. If things are troubling you, you will not find restorative sleep. Peace is more than the absence of war. It is more than knowing you have a gun under your pillow. Peace is “peace, completeness, welfare, and health.”

Peace I [Jesus] leave with you, my peace I give to you: not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27). God gives His children peace. It is His peace. It’s the peace that releases rest. Therefore we need not be troubled about anything. We need not fear. Fear will steal your peace.

If you are at peace, you will find rest and sleep. You will lay down in safety because it is the Lord alone that can give you safe rest. It’s safe to sleep.
