Day 3: I trust You, Lord. I receive Your sweet sleep. Proverbs 3:24
Today, too many of us are up through the night, tossing and turning, worried about tomorrow. When tomorrow comes, we are so tired from worrying all night, it's no way possible to be productive. Now you've added loss of job to your worry list.
Apostle Curnal P. Fahie often says that when night comes, he sleeps like a baby. He doesn't worry. Instead, he gives the issue to God because God doesn't sleep anyhow. Lol. After giving it to God, he goes to bed. Let God stay up with the issue. When the next day comes, he checks in with God and then goes on about his business.
What if you could really have sweet sleep every night? Sweet rest that causes you to feel relaxed and well rested upon waking.
Today is the last day you lose sleep over anything.
When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. Proverbs 3:24 KJV
You see that right there? The last part of the verse clearly says that our sleep will be sweet. Sure Solomon wrote this book of the Bible but if...
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2 Timothy 3:16 KJV
...then technically God wrote this and it's a promise made to you. So why are you worrying?
Make this declaration: Your word says I shall lie down, without fear and my sleep shall be sweet. This day, I say that I will sleep worry free. This thing that has troubled me all day, I give it to you. I lay it at your altar never to be picked back up. Every tormenting spirit that will try to keep me from sweet sleep, I rebuke you in the name of Jesus. I cover myself, even my sleep, in the blood of Jesus. Nothing shall hinder me from this promise and I receive my sweet sleep. I trust you Lord. Thank you for sweet sleep.
In faith, go to bed, knowing your sleep will be sweet. Also remember that we are commanded not to worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself (Matthew 6:34). Remember to be anxious for nothing, making your needs known to God, whose peace will guard your heart and mind (Philippians 4:6-7). This peace will ensure your sleep is sweet!
Begin to recognize the characteristics of your worry. Stomp it down quickly. Quash it out. Give it to God immediately and declare: I trust you!
