Topic: Go to Sleep
Suddenly there was an angel at his side and light flooding the room. The angel shook Peter and got him up: “Hurry!” – (Acts 12:7, MSG)
Message: The apostle Peter was chained between two soldiers in prison. The next day it looked as though Peter would be put to death. Yet when an angel appeared in the prison during the night, Peter was sleeping so soundly he had to be shaken awake. If you were Peter, would you be sleeping soundly? Peter must have thought, “God, I’ve done my best, believed and prayed, and now I’m going to rest in You.”
Worrying doesn’t make anything better. Constantly reminding God about what’s wrong only makes us depressed. Take the problem off the throne and put God back on the throne. If you’re talking about your problem more than you’re talking about your God, you have the wrong one on the throne. Try a different approach and do what Peter did—go to sleep. Enter into His rest. Say, “God, I know You’re bigger than anything I’m facing. You said You never sleep, so I’m going to sleep, knowing that You are fighting my battles.” That’s a freeing way to live.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for Your strength and comfort in difficult times. I refuse to be overwhelmed by problems because You will bring me through to victory. I declare that I am resting in the Almighty God who is greater than anything I face. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
