Do you ever have a restless night when it is hard to sleep? What do you do during those times? Do you worry about your day? Do you worry about tomorrow?
When a lack of sleep happens to me, I try to spend those hours laying in bed praying and seeking the Lord instead of worrying. There is a peace that takes over your heart and mind when you seek God and ask Him to lead.
A wise man wrote: “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139 : 23 – 24
Jesus said to pray like this: “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” Matthew 6 : 9 -12
Worry is the opposite of faith. Worry is fear. It is a lack of faith. Faith comes from hearing the word of God and putting your hope and trust 100% in what God has said and seeing his word manifest in your life. God is faithful and he will always take care of you. He is the living water of life that never runs dry. He will always answer your call to him and will always provide for you. He loves you and forgives you and delights in guiding and caring for you.
I just wanted to encourage you to ask God to lead you today and everyday in HIS way, because you can trust Him that his way is true and will last forever.
