Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep 

JULY 3 & 4, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Psalm 3:5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

     To sleep, for most people, seems like such an easy thing to do. However, have you ever considered for a moment, just how does sleep happen? You close your eyes, your mind sort of wanders off and your body rests. During this entire time, without one thought of your own, your heart continues to beat. Thump, thump, thump, thump, all through the night. You continue breathing, taking in the oxygen a body needs to survive, and yet you are not even aware of it. All your blood flows through miles of veins to all the parts of your body and yet you never helped it at all. You move around in the bed, toss, tumble, move your eyes, and never notice a thing. Some of you even talk and walk in your sleep and have no recollection of it at all. Almost one third of each day without realizing it, you have given over total control of your body to God. In addition, if you are reading this, well, it is evident He did a fairly good job last night.

     If we can trust God in our sleep to sustain our life, why is it so hard when we are awake to allow Him the same amount of control? Oh yea, I know… because somehow, we think we can handle it now, Right? Ever heard someone say about children, “They are such little angels when they are sleeping…” What they mean is they are not doing anything wrong at all. With God in total control, our days and nights could be so similar.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    Whether we want to admit it or not, God is still in control during the day. If you think He is not in complete control, then take this little test. Stop what you are doing and make your blood stop flowing for just one second. Could not do it? God could if He wanted to. I told you He was in control. If He controls what you cannot every day, why not let Him have control of what you can.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
