We need sleep!
The Bible makes it clear that God expects us to take care of our bodies.
And sleep is part of that care.
But the psalmist sacrifices his sleep for the Word of God.
“I rise before the dawning of the morning, and cry for help; I hope in Your word. My eyes are awake through the night watches, that I may meditate on Your word” (Psalm 119:147, 148).
Jesus also was up early in the morning-
– praying and meditating on the Word.
And on the Mount of Transfiguration-
Jesus, Moses and Elijah were discussing Christ’s plan to die in Jerusalem.
Peter, James and John were there, but they were asleep (Luke 9:32).
They slept through perhaps the greatest Bible conference ever held on earth!
Some of us have done the same thing!
We have slept through the blessing!!
For God to bless us through His Word-
– we have to start each day with it.
Do you set your alarm clock early enough in the morning to read the Bible?
– to meditate in the Word of God is not a loss.
It’s an investment in your spiritual life.
The Bible contains blessings you can use the rest of the day.
Let it be the key that opens and locks your day.
