Psalm 127:2 Says; It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep.
Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Or you’ve said, “I was up the whole night!!!” I couldn’t sleep at all... I was worried about the bills, my kids, my health... as the list goes on and gets longer and longer as you dwell on it...
The good news is that God has an amazing promise for you-
God “gives His beloved sleep”.
Who are His beloved? That’s You and Me!
Because You are in Christ, You are His beloved. Ephesians 1:6; 2 & Thessalonians 2:13
God says, “It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows…” In other words, it is pointless to worry and lose sleep because the truth is, “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.” Psalm 127:1
Jesus said in Mathew 6:25 That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?
Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?
Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing,yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
Here’s the Key-
You have to come to the place of saying; “God I Trust You”. I’m going to trust that my life and times because You are my God! Thank you that You Will deliver me-
As David said in Psalm 31:14-17 But I trust in you, Lord; I say, “You are my God.”My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.
Let me not be put to shame, Lord, for I have cried out to You-
Noticed David said...
You Have To Say It!
So, let God be the one who builds your career and watches over your finances- Let Him be the one who guards your health, your singleness, your marriage and your children.
Don’t worry and stay up late as if you are the source of the increase, or the one who has the power to make things happen and save the situation. No, God is the one and He says to you, “My child, throw that care to Me and go to sleep.” And while you are sleeping, He is working on your situation. He, who neither slumbers nor sleeps Psalm 121:3–4
He works the night shift for you as you sleep!
Did you read that? God works for you while your sleeping-
But because we are such doers and performers, it is hard for us to let go and let God take over. But when we actually do, casting all our cares, anxieties and worries once and for all into His hands, we will see how He cares for us affectionately and watchfully. 1 Peter 5:7
We will see Him taking care of our problems and working things out for good.
This is Your Time to Trust your Father’s love for you. Cast your cares on Him and have say; “No more sleepless nights-“
Love in His Grace, Pastor Joe
