Psalm 4 – You Can Sleep
I will both lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, Lord, make me live in safety. (Psalms 4:8)
In turbulent times like these, sleep can be hard to find. Maybe it’s because you don’t want to miss the latest news alert, or you can’t get your mind to settle down after a stressful day, or you worry about what tomorrow might bring. Or maybe it’s all three! You can try mindfulness techniques or medications to get to sleep, but David says it’s God alone who offers the kind of holistic peace that will bring true physical, emotional, and physical rest. Try reading his word, singing worship songs, and praying to him when sleep is eluding you.
