GOD’S SLEEPING PILLS
“Except the Lord build the
house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city,
the watchman waketh but in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to
sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved
For many years, off and on, I took very strong sleeping pills, as I could
not sleep. They did not work as I would still toss and turn all
night long. When I made a heart commitment, instead of a verbal and
head commitment to Jesus, I started going to sleep as soon as I went to
bed. Most of the time I don’t even remember going to bed, that is
how well I slept.
I was not his beloved when I was having all that trouble sleeping. I
was very bitter in my heart toward people. I had hatred and
resentment in my heart. It is no wonder I couldn’t sleep.
How about you, are you having to take sleeping pills every night? Go
to Jesus and allow Him to give you a heart checkup. He will take
away all the bitterness, resentment, and hatred in your heart. I
promise you that your sleep will be sweet.
Not only was I unable to sleep at night, I was breaking the Heart of Jesus
by my attitude toward others. How is your attitude toward others?
Is it pleasing to Jesus? We need to realize that when we hurt
others, we hurt Jesus.
