SWEET SLEEP

March 5, 2022

Psalms 3:1-8 Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me. Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah. But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about. Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. Salvation belongeth unto the Lord: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

Today I want to encourage you amid all the painful and troublous circumstances you may be presently experiencing. I want you to know that God hears your cry. He will strengthen and support you both physically and mentally, resulting in you having a sweet sleep.

In Psalm 3, King David is fleeing from Jerusalem due to the impending attack from his son Absalom. David had fought against many enemies, but he had never fought against a family member. Knowing his son wanted to kill him weighed heavily on David’s mind, causing mental anguish. Added to that fact was the realization that people whom he considered supporters and colleagues had turned against him and joined Absalom’s treasonous group.

As seen in Psalms 3, David’s lifeline was knowing God was his protection, he could cry unto him, and God would hear him. Though he was not in the palace where he could sleep comfortably in his bed but out in the rugged countryside, David was able to go to sleep having submitted all of his cares to God

Having slept, David awakens refreshed, knowing he did not have to be fearful for God handled all of his enemies. King David ends this Psalms in gratitude, acknowledging God saves and blesses His people

You can have the same sweet sleep as David by surrendering your mind, soul, and body to God. And when you awaken, don’t forget to thank Him.
