Dear Friends, The Bible tells us about the importance of good sleep for our physical and spiritual well-being. God, who created us, understands our need for rest. When we sleep well, our body and our mind are at peace.
From a practical perspective, the Bible teaches us that sleep is a gift from God. God knows a good night’s sleep can restore our energy and help us face our daily challenges.
Good sleep is not just physical rest; It has a spiritual aspect. In the Bible, we learn that God watches over us even when we sleep. He is our protector and He never sleeps. So when we lie down to rest, we can trust in His care and find comfort in His presence.
So sleeping well can also be seen as a symbol of trust in God. The Bible teaches us to cast our burdens on Him and find peace in His promises. When we sleep peacefully, we demonstrate our faith that God is in control and will take care of us.
