“On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you;
your right hand upholds me.
Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night, either from discomfort or stress. Whatever the cause, once I’m awake it’s hard to keep my mind from revving up. All sorts of wonderings and worries can fill my mind, and before I know it I’m lying on my bed having an anxiety fit at 2:00 am. Thankfully, King David offers a different approach to those restless kind of nights. Deciding to think about God in those dark pre-dawn hours has led to some intimate times of prayer and praise.
Question To Ponder: Do you ever find yourself awake when you’d rather be sleeping? Those stretches of time can seem endless! If you invite God to join you, He’ll bring a calm quietness to your night.
God desires our worship. But what does that mean?
My book, “Bow Down: The Heart of a True Worshipper, A 30-Day Devotional” and ebook, “Worshipping Like David” offer practical teaching and activities to help you grow in this area!
