I will praise the Lord who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
What happens within out human spirit and soul while we sleep? Nothing?
God never rests and the spiritual realm is non stop around the clock. But what happens while we sleep. Physically we are just beginning to understand. We dream and our body cleanses the brain among other things while we sleep.
The late Eugene Peterson said: "Eugene Peterson suggests that during sleep God can work on us without our resistance. While we sleep, we don't inhibit what God is desiring to do. We can understand the physical healing that happens while we sleep - but is it possible that spiritual healing is happening as well? Perhaps entering into sleep is an intentional way of placing cares, concerns, worries, and fears in God's hands - and inviting him to do his marvelous healing work." from the article below.
Remember to pray before you go to sleep. Reading Scripture or listening to someone read scripture is a good way to prepare your mind for rest.
