The Same Hands

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

Revelation 21:4

Someday God will wipe away your tears.

The same hands that stretched the heavens will touch your cheeks.

The same hands that formed the mountains will caress your face.

The same hands that curled in agony

as the Roman spike cut through will someday

cup your face and brush away your tears.

Daily Promise – September 22 – He will surround us with safety and give us peace

Psalm 4:8 KJV

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep:
for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

Promise #265:
I will give you a peaceful sleep surrounded by safety.

There are many things in this world that cause us to be afraid and not feel at peace. As a result,  many people struggle with sleep at night because of the numerous anxious thoughts that they have circulating in their minds.

Jesus was able to sleep on boats in the midst of storms. He is the Prince of Peace and has promised to give His peace to us. In John 14:27 Jesus says… Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. NIV

His encouragement to us today is to not be afraid. He will make us to lie down in peace and have a restful sleep surrounded by His abiding sense of safety. For all those who struggle with geting a good night’s sleep, I pray that this promise would become a tangible reality for you today.

May you go to sleep tonight not dreading a night of tossing turning. May the tangible presence of the Prince of Peace surround you and envelope you with His love so that you can feel truly safe and you can have the best sleep of your life!
