A Good Night’s Sleep!

By faithsprings

​I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me – Psa 3:5 (NIV)

sleeping-1310748

How many times have we woken up, stretched ourselves and gone off into our daily chores without a shard of thought for the one who wakes us up from sleep? No, not your wife nudging you in the ribs, nor your kids trying to nestle under the covers with you on a Saturday morning. For there are many with wives and kids who slept yesterday night and are not up today. I speak of Him, who watches over you as you sleep – who never slumbers nor sleep as you renew your strength for tomorrow.

You wake up from sleep because He sustains you. The Lord, He sustains you. Learn to say “Thank you, Lord” because He sustains you – yesterday, today and everyday!
