Sleepless And Worried?

by Hazel Straub

In prayer, I inquired why many Christians were having sleepless nights and difficulty resting. He replied that their focus was not on him but on other things. They took their worries to bed instead of giving them to the Lord.

Doubt and unbelief that God will solve their problems fill their minds. They rely on themselves instead of him. It is a new season, with the old routines disrupted and broken, so we can embrace the new. God calls his people to come closer to him and to rely on him, to seek his wisdom, and counsel. Greater dependency on him, will cause us to excel in the new season that has disturbing events.

The Lord  yearns for a new awareness of him, in our lives. Then circumstances will not sway us but  we will rest in him. What causes fear in others will be a catapult for souls to enter the kingdom of God. His desire for us is readiness and victory. Rest in him!

My son, never lose sight of God’s wisdom and knowledge:
    make decisions out of true wisdom, guard your good sense,
And they will be life to your soul
    and fine jewelry around your neck.
Then each one of your steps will land securely on your life’s journey,
    and you will not trip or fall.
Your mind will be clear, free from fear;
    when you lie down to rest, you will be refreshed by sweet sleep.
Stay calm; there is no need to be afraid of a sudden disaster
    or to worry when calamity strikes the wicked,
For the Eternal is always there to protect you.
    He will safeguard your each and every step. (Proverbs 3:21-26 VOICE)
