Sweet Sleep

Sweet Sleep

Lindsay Roberts

Proverbs 3:24 NKJV says, “When you lie down, you will not be afraid; yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet.”

Have you ever wondered how birds keep from falling off their perches when they go to sleep? Scientists say that the reason birds don’t fall off their perches when they go to sleep is because they have a muscle in each leg which automatically tightens when they land on a tree branch.

What a wonderful picture of how you can find the peace of mind you need to fall asleep at night. You have a muscle like the one the birds have… it’s called trust. When you latch your trust onto God and His promises, you can relax, knowing that you are safe in your heavenly Father’s care.
