Blessed Sleep by Karen Pourbabaee
“…for He gives blessings to His beloved in sleep.” Psalm 127:2 Amplified Bible
Insomnia is considered a major illness which affects an estimated 32 million people in the U.S. alone. With insufficient sleep, physical and mental performance suffers. Illness may develop because of inadequate time for repair of damaged tissues in the body. Many falsely believe that sleep is a waste of time, not knowing what a regenerative process takes place. Cleansing of toxins and rebuilding of tissues occur. Emotional processing and problem solving happens. Even spiritual development is enhanced with sleep. Sleep is a miraculous healing process, a gift from God.
God’s word offers us further insight on the blessings of this gift of sleep:
Psalm 4:8 “ In peace I will both lie down and sleep for you, Lord, alone make me dwell in safety and confident trust”. AB
Proverbs 3:24 “When you lie down you shall not be afraid; yes, you shall lie down and your sleep shall be sweet.” AB
Psalm 16:7 “I will bless the Lord who counsels me; He gives me wisdom in the night. He tells me what to do.” Living Bible
Job 33:14-16 “For God speaks again and again, in dreams, in visions of the night when deep sleep falls on men as they lie on their beds. He opens their ears…and gives them wisdom and instruction.” LB
Sleep is ordained by God for your restoration and healing, energizing you to do His will. He lovingly adds wisdom and instruction to your time of rest. If you are being robbed of blessed sleep, these scriptures are the perfect nightly prayers. Just add an Amen.
