Sweet Sleep

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

You may not know how, you may not know when, but God can, God is, and God has already done it for you. This is heavenly peace…

Knowing that you have heaven’s security, God is not a man that he should lie. He and his word are married and it will not return to him void but will accomplish what he sent it forth to do. God has given you all things richly to enjoy. God has given you all things about life and godliness.

Acts 12:5-7
“Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. (power of corporate intercession)
And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.
And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.”

Although, Peter’s circumstances were disturbing, he was not. Peter was facing trial, imprisoned, and guarded in chains, but none of this disrupted his inner peace. The peace that keeps us from falling to pieces. Heavenly peace is undisturbing peace…it keeps our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus!

Therefore, all the devil can do is con you out of what already belongs to you. “Sleep in heavenly peace…” God promised us sweet sleep in Proverbs 3:24, and that sweet sleep comes from his sweet heavenly peace.

I command the Shalom of Jehovah, the Prince of Peace, the heavenly peace of God to encumber the enemy from disturbing your inner peace, your rest, your sleep, your health, heart and mind in Christ Jesus. In Yeshua’s peace and Yeshua’s authority, sleep in heavenly peace…

  1. Thanks for this one Gabriel. Have been struggling with sleep issues. Specifically, lots of extremely vivid Dreams that spill over into visions. Some very confusing and some (usually the VERY vivid) from The Father. Currently reading a book on dreams & visions by Dr. Joe Ibojie, and I am convinced that The Father is trying to impart something. But, my distracted lifestyle (too much Boobus-Toobus) is keeping me from hearing well. Then your word about sleep really brought it into focus. Nothing about my sleep for the last number of months could be described as “Sweet”. But, I am realizing that it has to do with a call to deeper intimacy with Him. Thanks for being used by Our Lord to confirm this for me. You Rock!

    • Praise God, Derek! He desires close intimacy with us and wants us to seek him with all our heart. He has your attention and calls you closer than you have ever been. He speaks and calls us to listen and come close in father and son relationship. Amazing!
