After a long day of work, whether it be stressful or not, it is important we all sleep and recharge our batteries. For some it is very easy to fall right asleep, and for others it can be very stressful. Sleeplessness, insomnia, and stress may cause us to stay awake longer than expected. We sometimes have trouble finding a relaxed state of mind. So we look up to God, and He helps put our minds to rest.
Being able to lie down with no fear is something we should all be able to do at night. Unfortunately, dangerous parts of the world make it hard to have peace of mind as a Christian. They can be persecuted and even lose their lives.
No matter what we can always look to the Lord for peace. His words will soothe our minds and soul and help us sleep better at night. These Bible verses are examples of times where God helped those mentioned in the Bible fall asleep.
