When You Can’t Sleep.. Remember The Promises Of God

“Trials dark on every hand, And we cannot understand.
All the ways that God would lead us, To that blessed promised land.”
Those are the lyrics to a gospel song… but, I’m guessing many of us can identify with those lyrics… “Trials dark on every hand…”
We go through times when there are trials on every hand.
Psalm 119:47-49 says, “I cry out for help and put my hope in your words. I stay awake through the night, thinking about your promise. In your faithful love, O Lord hear my cry; let me be revived by following your regulations.”
Think about those verses… the Psalmist says, “I cry out for help… I stay awake all night…” Have you ever stayed awake all night or, at least much of the night, concerned about a problem? Most of us have. It may be concern over a child… it may be financial problems… marital problems, or something else.
If you have been there… if you have stayed awake all night concerned about a problem… listen to the words of the Psalmist… “I stay awake through the night, thinking about your promise.
If something is weighing heavy on your heart, give it to the Lord… Remember His promise. Relief may not come immediately but in God’s time it will.
