How to Sleep

FEBRUARY 16, 2024

I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
Psalm 4:8

Bringing a product to market represents a huge financial investment. Based on the number of sleep aid medicines and supplements on the market, it would appear that a lot of people aren’t getting enough sleep! Those products wouldn’t exist if the world was sleeping soundly at night.

The psalmist David pointed out something we know all too well: There is a difference between going to bed and going to sleep. Everybody goes to bed at night, but not everyone goes to sleep. But David did both: “I will both lie down in peace, and sleep.” Why was he able to sleep in peace? Because he trusted in God: “You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.” He wrote those words during a period of unnamed trouble in his life—something everyone can identify with. But instead of being angry, he silenced his heart and went to sleep in peace (Psalm 4:4, 8). 

Do you go to bed, or do you both go to bed and go to sleep in peace? Search your heart and commit your concerns to God—and rest in Him.

We sleep in peace in the arms of God when we yield ourselves up to His providence.
François Fénelon
