Blessings In Sleep

I got a great message from Joel Osteen today and when I read it it made me think  why am I still suffering from insomnia when I know 2 things that can relieve me from this awful curse??  1st of all, I should be in constant prayer asking God to deliver me from this disease.  2nd, I have Melatonin but keep forgetting to take it, why is that?  I can only come to the conclusion that the enemy does not want me to be blessed.  He wants to rob me of my days, keep me out of kilter and take my focus off of what God has in store for me.  So, now that I know this, I can guard myself and guard myself against these attacks in the name of Jesus!!! Take care and God bless you all.

A message from Joel Osteen

Today’s Scripture

“He gives blessing to His beloved in sleep” (Psalm 127:2 AMP).

Today’s Word from Joel and Victoria

The Lord longs to pour out blessings on you constantly—even when you sleep! Many people today struggle with sleeping at night. They stay awake or get poor sleep because they are constantly focused on their problems and worrying about tomorrow. But that’s not God’s plan for you! He wants you to enjoy your sleep as a time of blessing and refreshing. Understand that God has His hand on your life even in the midnight hour. He wants to speak to your heart and restore your dreams. He is taking care of those things that concern you. When you cast your cares on Him and trust Him to work out every detail of your life, you’ll be able to enjoy that sweet sleep that He has promised. Make the decision today to enjoy the blessing of the Lord as you sleep tonight. Say a prayer before you go to bed and cast your cares on Him. As you allow the Lord to bless and refresh you in sleep, you’ll see a tremendous change in your waking hours. You’ll be more invigorated, more alert, and full of the blessing of the Lord in every area of your life!

A Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your promise of blessing. I ask that You teach me to receive that blessing even while I sleep. I cast my cares on You and trust that You are working behind the scenes in my life. Thank You for watching over me and protecting me. Thank You for refreshing me as I sleep tonight. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  1. Dear Briggitte,
    I see you have trouble sleeping. Amazingly enough, I remember to take my 2 tablets of Melatonin (3 MG) but sometimes I have difficulty sleeping. On the alternate night I take Ambien CR and sleep like a baby. So I get a decent night’s sleep about every other night. The rest of the time I spend praying (which is a good thing) or worrying needlessly (which is not such a good thing). Hope you remember to take the Melatonin.
    God Bless,
    Doris
