In times where fear has attempted to put it’s grip on a member of our family, especially at night, we have often gone back to the story of David. It is quite remarkable that while enemy soldiers were outside, he was able to peacefully fall asleep in a cave. David fully trusted his faithful God to look after him. My prayer is that these 5 verses, and others that you find, give you a peace tonight that allows you to fall into a deep and restful sleep. While there is chaos and uncertainty in the world around us, we can cast all of our cares on our God who is ready to give us a peace that passes all understanding. Sweet dreams.
Psalm 4:8 NLT
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.
John 14:7 AMP
Peace I leave with you; My[perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]
Matthew 11:28-30 NLT
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

The Lord gives his people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace.

You can go to bed without fear; you will lie down and sleep soundly.
