Sleep in Peace by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/30/11

“I try to wake up early to read my Bible, but I get soootired! It’s like I’m trying to pray, but all I’m saying is just nonsense.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I’ve had that problem, too. But here’s one solution: go to bed earlier! That may mean putting the kids to bed earlier, limiting social events, or turning off the TV—but it’s worth it.

Meditating on the Lord and His Word before we go to sleep is another way to prepare for meeting with God the next day.

Psalm 4:4 may have been a prayer David used before going to sleep at night. It says, “When you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent.”

He goes on, “I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.”

Tonight, try meditating on Scripture before you go to sleep. See how it affects your devotional time tomorrow.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “O beloved friends, there is a life on wings. I feel the streams of His life fill me and permeate my mortal frame from my head to my feet, until no words are adequate to describe it. I can only make a few bungling attempts to tell you what it is like and ask the Lord to reveal to you the rest. May He reveal to you your inheritance in Christ Jesus so that you will press on and get all that He has for you.” – Carrie Judd Montgomery

Be glad then, you children of Zion, And rejoice in the Lord your God; For He has given you the former rain faithfully, And He will cause the rain to come down for you— The former rain, And the latter rain in the first month. — Joel 2:23 (NKJV)
