A change of our Lifestyles could benefit our Lifespan.

Scientifically explained and proven sleep is very important and you might lose lots of years of your lifespan if you don’t sleep enough. But what about our spiritual life?

Even GOD rested on day 7 – always remember that!

So sleep is very important.

What does the Bible say about sleep?

In multiple contexts, sleeping is referred throughout the scripture stories and teachings. It is the obvious time of rest during the night when we recover and restore our energy to take on the next day. According to the Bible, we need to trust in God as an assurance of such peaceful resting. When worries prevent us from sleeping, we can cast our anxieties upon the love and sovereignty of God. Sleeping also relates to the occurrence of dreams and many biblical figures experience dreams and are usually receiving a message from God while dreaming.

Job 14:12

so he lies down and does not rise; till the heavens are no more, people will not awake or be roused from their sleep.

John 11:12 is even clearer

His disciples replied, “Lord if he sleeps, he will get better.”

Mark 5:39 here he is referring to the sleep of a child

He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.”

Matthew 8:24 and Jesus too took his rest and was sleeping to recover and gain new strength

“Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.”

Even in the Old Testament, we read in Proverbs 20:13

“Do not love sleep or you will grow poor; stay awake and you will have food to spare.”

Psalm 3:5 just says the opposite

“In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.”

and in Ecclesiastes 5:12 it is written very clear who those are who have no sleep or not enough sleep.

“The sleep of a laborer is sweet, whether they eat little or much, but as for the rich, their abundance permits them no sleep.”

I personally love most Mathew 11: 28-30 when it comes to sleep.

We have to rest – every one of us should have enough sleep every day and we should trust in the LORD as he will give us rest when we trust in him,

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Psalm 23 – He restoreth my soul!

Psalm 23 (I am Not Alone) Lyrics

The Lord is my Shepherd
He goes before me
Defender behind me
I won’t fear
I’m filled with anointing
My cup’s overflowing
No weapon can harm me
I won’t fear

Hallelujah I am not alone
He’s my comfort, always holds me close

He always guides me
Through mountains & valleys
His joy is refreshing
Restores my soul
Mercy and Goodness
Gives me assurance
That I’ll see Your Glory
Face to face

Your Spirit lives within me
So I will walk in Your Peace
Your Spirit lives within me
My Victory (My Victory)

Written by Joshua Sherman, Laurel Taylor, Steven Musso Psalm 23 is derived from the famous Psalm of David, a wonderful modern Gospel Song perfect for large worship teams or choirs featuring a call and response to encourage the Church to raise her voice!
