Sleep Soundly


“My child, don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment. Hang on to them,

They keep you safe on your way, and your feet will not stumble. You can go to bed without fear; you will lie down and sleep soundly. You need not be afraid of sudden disaster or the destruction that comes upon the wicked, for the Lord is your security. He will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.”

Proverbs 3:21, 23-26 NLT


King Solomon wrote most of proverbs based on his experience and the divine wisdom he was given from God. Through wisdom we will live a life being able to sleep soundly. There will not be any worries that will be creeping around causing you to fear. You will be able to escape situations that others would find themselves in trouble.


Today, this spoke to me because I can distinctly remember a time where I have had something on my mind and could not sleep. I was worried about it if it would come back to bite me. I spent hours wrestling with it, praying, confessing, and worrying. After finally getting to sleep, I woke up a few hours later, dead tired. There were so many things going through my mind and sleep was not one of them. Had I listened to my conscience and common sense, that mistake could have been avoided. How important is it to keep our eyes on wisdom that will keep us from falling to fear and traps aimed to destroy us and anything within the blast radius. We must keep attentive to the Holy Spirit’s direction. We need to be seeking His wisdom that will help us to live a life free from self-inflicted fears and wounds.


Lord Jesus, Thank you so much for your grace when we do make mistakes. Thank you for offering Wisdom to help us life a righteous life. Please help us to keep our eyes on common sense and discernment from the Holy Spirit. In Your Name, Jesus. Amen!


箴言3:21, 23-26 NLT
