Weekday devotionals for Christians

Good Sleep

Pro 3:24  When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

Pro 3:25  Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.

Pro 3:26 For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.

Have you ever been weary and needed a good night’s rest?  I have yet to meet an adult who could say no to this question.  I remember when I worked 2 jobs a day and extra jobs on the weekend before I moved down here.  I was glad to have those 2 jobs.  I needed both of them to make ends meet.  I am sure you have been there at some point in your life, or you might be there now.  What ever the situation might be, having “sweet sleep” is something we all desire.  In fact, life gets pretty rough when you can not get restful sleep.

These 3 verses talk about sudden fear, and verse 25 talks about desolation of the wicked.  Both of these can cause poor sleep.  Sometimes seeing the wicked going into desolation is very scary.  That word means “devastation”.  Seeing someone go through total devastation is very hard to see, even if you do not like them.  “Never fear”, God says!  “I will be your confidence, and keep thy foot from being taken”.

Have you seen someone’s foot being taken by a trap or a noose hidden on the ground?  That is what verse 26 is showing.  God will keep thy foot from being snared.  The word “keep” also means to protect or guard.  If I want anyone to guard or protect me, I want them to be the Lord.  He never gets fooled or tricked!  These 3 verses should be an encouragement to you as you follow the Lord.  Are there dangers out there?  The answer is yes, but God is your Protection!
