In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Psalm 4:8

In the busyness of this world, we can often find ourselves sacrificing vital rest because our flesh makes us feel that either we need to work ourselves to death to succeed or to the other spectrum that we stay up too late watching TV or surfing the internet. God made our bodies so that we would experience restful sleep in order to rejuvenate ourselves for His purposes and plans for our day. It’s a spirit over flesh choice to find time to sleep with a healthy number of hours. How can we find our R.E.S.T.?

R – Remember that God created our bodies for times of sleep.

E – Engage ourselves in a consistent night time routine.

S – Silence those activities that get our minds and emotions worked up right before bed.

T – Talk to God. (1 Peter 5:7)


Dear Lord, help me to take care of myself by getting a good night’s rest. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
