Seeking Him Podcast

Sleep in Peace

Woman: I try to wake up early to read my Bible, but I get sooo tired! It's like I'm trying to pray, but all I'm saying is just nonsense.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: I've had that problem, too. But here's one solution: go to bed earlier! That may mean putting the kids to bed earlier, limiting social events, or turning off the TV—but it’s worth it.

Meditating on the Lord and His Word before we go to sleep is another way to prepare for meeting with God the next day.

Psalm 4:4 may have been a prayer David used before going to sleep at night. It says, “When you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent.”

He goes on, “In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.”

Tonight, try meditating on Scripture before you go to sleep. See how it affects your devotional time tomorrow.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
