Read: Proverbs 3
Verse: 24 (NLT)
"You can go to bed without fear; you will lie down and sleep soundly."
I love the promise in this verse. So many times I rehearse my day as I try to fall asleep and that doesn't help. The Lord is slowly helping me make a new bedtime routine, trying to wind down a little earlier. Also, when I awake in the middle of the night, instead of worrying or about the day ahead, I am now focusing on the glorious attributes of God by praising Him through the alphabet. Not asking for anything but rehearsing that He is: Amazing, Beautiful, Caring, my Deliverer, my Everything, Faithful, Great, Holy, Incredible, my Joy, Kind, Loving, Magnificent, Nice, Omnipotent, Prince of Peace, Quiet, Redeemer, Savior, Trustworthy, Understanding, Victorious, Wonderful, eXtraordinary, Yes and Amen, and Zealous.
I usually don't make it all the way through the alphabet, because the Lord has calmed my mind and my heart and I'm able to once again, "go to bed without fear...and sleep soundly"
How will you allow the Lord to minister to you during the night?
