“For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.” -Psalm 127:2
If that isn’t grace, what is?
Even while we are asleep our heavenly Father is filling us and pouring into us.
If that isn’t a loud and clear message to let go and know He is God and He is good, what is?
As I meditated on this scripture I thought of new parents. When they bring home that sleepy little newborn, there are no expectations or requirements for them to give all they have to that precious little one. Parents could stare for hours at this amazing creation.
And what is the child doing?
Another benefit to sleep it releases us to dream. We need proper rest in order to dream. Sleep slips us beyond the limitations we think we have.
“Cease from striving and know that I am God.” -Psalm 46:10
So go ahead, take a nap.
