Sometimes it’s when we crawl into bed that our worries and fears rise to the surface. In the quiet of the night, our minds wander into those places the busyness of daytime normally distracts us from. Whatever such thoughts are for each of us, it’s good to have the reminder that God keeps us through the night and that because of this we can rest and have peace. Scripture reminds us of this, so here are two verses that do precisely that. I’m going to read them as I prepare to doze off. I invite you to do the same.
I will both lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, LORD, make me live in safety. — Psalm 4:8
You will keep the mind that is dependent on you in perfect peace, for it is trusting in you. — Isaiah 26:3
