Ever have trouble sleeping? ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
.
The good news is that God wants you to enjoy sweet sleep, and if we go to His Word, we can find out how to have it! ๐Ÿ˜ด
.
If you have trouble falling asleep, or wake up and canโ€™t go back to sleep, hereโ€™s how we can use Godโ€™s Word to have it:
.
1. Every day and before bed, speak these promises over yourself:
.
When I lie down, I am not anxious or afraid. When I lie down, my sleep is sweet. The Lord gives me peaceful sleep. (Proverbs 3:24, Psalm 127:2)
.
I cast all my care upon the Lord, for He cares for me. I am in perfect peace; my mind is stayed on the Lord. (1 Peter 5:7, Isaiah 26:3)
.
I am not careful or anxious about anything, my heart is not troubled or afraid. The peace of God which surpasses understanding guards my heart and mind in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7, John 14:27)
.
Speak these scriptures purposefully every day. When you do, you are sowing the Word-seed for peaceful sleep which WILL bear a harvest. (Mark 4) ๐Ÿ“–๐ŸŒฑ
.
2. Pray in tongues.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
.
This is one of the BEST solutions! ๐Ÿ’ฏ
.
When we pray in tongues the Holy Spirit knows exactly what is needed for peaceful sleep, and through us is praying the perfect prayer/perfect solution. (Romans 8:26) ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
.
3. If you donโ€™t pray in tongues, take your favourite scripture (or one of the ones listed above!) and speak it slowly, over and over, meditating on each word as you speak it. ๐Ÿ“–
.
Not being able to fall asleep, or waking up in the night and not being able to get back to sleep, is usually the result of tumultuous thoughts and a restless mind. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
.
The solution is to deliberately and purposefully put our minds on God – on His Word – and the result will be perfect peace. ๐Ÿ˜‡ (Isaiah 26:3)
.
Perfect peace = peaceful sleep! ๐Ÿ˜ด
.
4. STOP saying things like, โ€œI have insomnia, I never get a full nightโ€™s sleep, I can never get back to sleep, I always wake up in the middle of the nightโ€ฆโ€ etc. ๐Ÿ™Š
.
God promises that we have what we say (Mark 11:23), so instead of giving life to the problem by talking about it, ONLY SAY WHAT GOD SAYS about you! ๐Ÿ“–
.
5. Ask God for wisdom ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Sometimes there are things we can do/should stop doing in the natural (give up that espresso before bed?! ๐Ÿ˜†) to help. God will get that wisdom to us when we ask Him for it! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
.
No matter whatโ€™s going on in your life, God wants you to enjoy a good nightโ€™s sleep. ๐Ÿ˜ด
.
If Jesus could sleep in the middle a storm, so can you! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผย
