DAY 2 OF 5
God is Bigger than Any Problem You Face
God designed you to sleep and keeps you completely secure in Christ. What does this mean? It means that you can relax because nothing can separate you from the love and care of your Heavenly Father.
Not only are you secure in Christ as His child, you also have the assurance that He will never leave you nor forsake you so you can join the writer of Hebrews and confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What will man do to me?” Let this thought wash over your soul, let it penetrate deeply to the core of your being: If the Lord will never leave me, then He is here with me now. If He is here with me now, then He is aware and in control of the situations that concern me. Do you believe that? When you fully grasp this truth, it will calm your soul and prepare you for peaceful sleep.
Because you know that satan is the author of all worry, you should reject all worry. God has promised you the power to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ and the power to center your thoughts on the peace and rest He promises His children. And because He supplies the power, you know that you can place every concern in His hands and leave them there. You say to yourself, “my Heavenly Father is bigger than any problem I face so I will rest in that. As I rest in Christ now, I feel any remaining tension leaving my soul. My body relaxes as I meditate on the reality of God’s complete control. I am His child and He loves me.”
Tonight when you are ready for bed, pop in your earbuds, click on the audio clip below and relax as you close your eyes and listen to a small portion of our “Beside Quiet Waters” sleep session that will reinforce today’s devotional as you drift off to sleep. Note that while the relaxation portion is similar, the message is different. Wait for it – it’s good!
