If You Really Trust God You Can Sleep

The person who really trusts God about his protection and deliverance from trouble, is able to relax, and go to bed. What is the proof that a Christian really trusts in God, for his protection and deliverance from trouble? The proof is if that Christian, is able to sleep during the night. 

When we read the book of Acts chapter 12, and verses from 1 to 11, we can see, that Apostle Peter, was captured by king Herod, and was put in prison. Now, the reason Herod did that, is because he had started to persecute some Christians, and he even killed James, the brother of John. Therefore, he also decided to find Peter, and shut him in prison. 

When we read what actually happened to Peter, while he was put in prison, we will find him relaxing, and going to bed, to sleep. What is important for us to notice here, is that Peter surely knew, that king Herod, was persecuting Christians, and that he even killed James, the brother of John. Now, just knowing that fact, would be enough for Apostle Peter, to start worry and be gripped with anxiety, about his own safety and about his life. Peter probably thought, that if Herod killed James, the brother of John, he could kill him too, in order to please the Jews. 

But what we find when we read Acts 12:1-11, is that Peter instead of worrying and being anxious about being killed by Herod, decided to go to bed. Now, that I believe, is a complete trust in God. I believe that Peter perhaps even did not care about his life anymore, but believed that whatever happened to him, if he was killed by Herod, he would go to heaven, but if he was not killed, he would continue to preach the Gospel, and that is what all mattered to Peter, at that time in prison.

​Remember that Peter, was scared for losing his own life, when he denied Jesus three times, and was trying to pretend, that he did not know Jesus. Peter did that, because he was worried that the Jews could crucify him too, just like his master Jesus was. But that was before the day of Pentecost, or before the day after the resurrection of Jesus, when the Apostles were filled and baptised, with the Holy Spirit. Since the baptism of the Holy Spirit, on the day of Pentecost, Peter has become a different man, bold and courageous, by the Holy Spirit in him, and that is what made him not worry about losing his life, anymore. 

Could you as a Christian, be able to sleep, if you were put in prison, and if you knew that you could be killed, because of your faith in Christ? Peter did, and the proof that he was completely trusting God, no matter what happened to him, is in the fact, that he went to bed, and was sound asleep. And that is when God sent an angel, which took him out of prison, in a miraculous way. 

Faith and trust in God, will bring peace and a sound sleep to a Christian, even in the time of persecution, just like Peter was. But a lack of faith or trust of God, for his protection and deliverance, will bring plenty or worry and anxiety, and inability to sleep, and have a sweet dreams.

Reasons Why You Should Stop Being Anxious

Are you anxious today, about some situation in your life? Many people there are!


This world and what is happening in it, has plenty of reasons for us to be worried and anxious, for millions of things.

The world is going south, in many aspects, from day to day, and it even tries to drag many Christians, in its going south, so if you are not careful, the world and its anxiety causing situations, can make you to feel more anxious, than more at peace, every day.

You have to realise, that God always cares about your anxiety, so much so, that he caused some of his people in the past, to write and put it on paper in his Word, to let you know, that he does care.

God knew from very long time ago, that this world, because of drifting away from him, will cause its own inhabitants, to live in fear, by seeing all the terrible things happening out there. God knew, and God has made sure, that his own people, must be comforted, and not be anxious every day, because of what they see and hear, be it on television, be it on Internet, or the newspapers. God cares. He never designed you to live a life of anxiety and fear, because of the world circumstances, and what happens around.

In so many places in the Bible, God says that he wants to, and will comfort his people, and that is what you and me can take and place in our hearts, as a guard of our souls and hearts, to guard us against anxiety and fear.

In Isaiah 40:1, God says very plainly twice, that he wants to comfort his own people. He did not say it once, but twice! Why? Because he wants you to know, that he will surely comfort you, if you are living in anxiety and worry, and you believe in him, and follow his ways.

Jesus made it very clear in the Gospels too, that in this world we will have trouble, but at the same time he said, that he leaves his own divine peace with us. He knew, that his followers, will suffer many times over, in the future, after his resurrection, all over the world, and he said, that we can have his own peace in us, which passes logic and understanding and reasoning, to guard our hearts and mind in him, and to keep us sane, and not only that, but to overcome the world, just as he did.

Perhaps you have anxiety caused by outside circumstances, but you have him, on the inside. Now, the one who lives in you on the inside, Jesus Christ himself, will fight your anxious circumstances on the outside, so that you can be a victor, and not a victim of circumstances. He thinks that if he overcame the world, his followers, his body the church, should be over-comers in this anxious world. The gates of hell, will try to prevail and make the Church anxious and worried, but they will prevail, according to the world of Jesus.

Jesus does not want you, to be alone, in your own anxiety and worry, but he wants to share it with you, to bear your burden, and to slash that anxiety and worry in peaces, and that is why, he has called us, to cast all our anxiety on him, so that he can deal with it in a much better and superior way, than we do it ourselves. Give it to him, he knows how to deal with it better than you do! Once you do it, you will want to do it again, and again, because you will be able to sleep well, each night, knowing that he is dealing with it.

Do not take your anxiety and worry back to yourself, once you give it and cast it up to heaven to God, but leave it entirely to him, to sort it out, and he will. If you take your anxiety back, once you have cast it to him, you will have to deal with it yourself again, and that means more sleepless nights and worry!

How to Stop Worrying and Start Living

What are you worrying about?

Do you find yourself worrying every day for various things in your life?


Do you worry about your needs, having no job, or no money to pay your bills? Or do you worry about your health and a disease which you believe and expect God to heal?

Worry is an enemy which attacks Christian or non Christian. It is a common mental challenge which plagues the lives of many people around the world.

The question is, what can you do about your own worry, so that your life will be less worry-full, and more worth living.

You see, we as Christians are either worryors or warriors. God has commanded us to stop being anxious, and to be soldiers of Christ. He calls us and wants as to behave like soldiers for him, and not like worry wimps.

​He knows that we do not need to worry, even when we do. He wants us to be like Apostle Peter, who was just sleeping and relaxing amount the soldiers guarding him, when he was in prison. Peter was sleeping, and not worrying. How do we know? Well, people who worry too much, can not usually sleep.

Listen, God wants you to stop worrying, and be free from it! Why, because he knows that worry deprives you from trusting in him, and believing him for a miracle in your life. You can not worry about your problem, and believe for a miracle at the same time, because the fact that you worry, shows that you do not belief enough to see the miraculous. People who believe God for a miracle, are confident in him, that he will do it in their life. You can not be confident in God for a miracle, if you worry!

We either believe our circumstances more, or we believe God more. The closer we are to God, and the more we know him, the further we are from our troublesome circumstance in life. And the closer we are to our circumstance, and the more we know about it, and the more it dominates us, the further we are from our trust and faith in God, for delivering us and helping us, in that difficult circumstance. We either believe or worry. The one can ‘kill’ us, and the other can heal us. The choice is entirely ours. God has provided us with everything in his Word, to be warriors for him, instead of ‘worryors’.

As we know in Philippians 4:6, God tells us not to be anxious about anything first, and then the next verse tells us that the peace of God, will guard our heart and minds in Christ Jesus. We have to do our part, not to be anxious, so that we can allow, the peace of God to guard our minds and hearts in Christ. If we are worried most of the time, how can we let the peace of Christ to do what it is supposed to do, in our hearts and minds? If we worry, we do not let the peace of God to rule in our hearts.

Who Would Like to Be Free from Anxiety and Worry? Psalm 121

Are full with anxiety? Do you worry most of the time? Are you anxious of what will happen in a particular situation in your life? You are not alone, and many people these days are. But, you do not have to be!

This world, and the circumstances in your life, may give you all the reasons to worry, and be anxious. But ask yourself the following question. Does God want to to wallow in worry and anxiety, or to be free from worry and anxiety?

Perhaps you say, ‘Yes, I want to be free from worry and anxiety, but I can not’. Well, maybe you can not, but there is One, who can set you free. And not only is God able to free you from worry and anxiety, but he has also promised in his Word, that he will do so, not once or twice, but quite a few times.

Look at Psalm 121. First of all, it says that your help comes from God. Help for what? Well, any help you need, it is there, available from God for you. But you may wonder, if that help, includes freedom from worry and anxiety. Yes, it does. Why should God help you only in one area of your life, but not help you in another? He does not just help you half a way, only for half of the things in your life. No.

Would a earthly father help his children just for some of the things, but not for others. Of course, a good father will want to help his children for everything. How much more does God want to do that for us.

In Psalm 121, verse 3, it says that God will not let your foot slip. What does it mean? Well, it means that he cares enough for you, so that you will not fall flat on your face, and hurt your nose in life. The main reason God will not let your foot slip, is so that you will not fall and hurt yourself. That is it.

When you spiritually begin to slip and fall in life, he will do exactly that too, he will not let you get hurt, but will comfort you, even if you do. He watches over you says verse 5. Watches over you for what? So that you will be free from harm, as verse 7 says. What harm? Well, any harm. Be it physical or mental. And that includes the harm from anxiety and worry. Yes, it does, because anxiety and worry, hurts you not only mentally, but physically too.

God wants to be your shade by day, as verses 5 and 6 say, so that the sun will not hurt you. When you get too ‘hot’ in your life, from various worries and anxieties, God wants to cool you down mentally, so you will be comforted.

God watches over you, verse 7. He watches over you, so you will not be harmed, mentally, or physically. When he watches over you, that includes him caring to set you free from worry and anxiety, because he has promised to keep you from all harm, verse 7. It says all harm, and not only some harm, and that includes keeping you from the harm of worry, and anxiety too.

Imagine You Can be Free from Worry Every Day-Psalm 68

Do you worry about the things going around in the world? Do you worry about things in your own life, perhaps how get rid of a chronic disease, or how to find an employment, or perhaps, about broken relationships with members of your own family?

Why do we worry? 

Well, worry does on in our own brain, by us calculating and estimating what we can do, in order to make sure, that we will be free from danger, or to make sure, that we will be safe, and without unnecessary suffering in our life. 

All that sounds good, that we are taking a precaution of how to avoid harmful or dangerous things in our life. But, the problem becomes, when we start thinking too much, and on a regular basis, about the same things again and again, so much so, that those thoughts of worry, occupy our mind most of the time, or at least, very often.
