God “gives His beloved sleep.” Who are His beloved? You and I! Because we are in Christ, we are His beloved (see Ephesians 1:6, 2 Thessalonians 2:13). God says, “It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows.” In other words, it is pointless to worry and lose sleep because the truth is, “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain” (Psalm 127:1).
Today, God is saying to you, “My beloved child, throw that care to Me and go to sleep.” And while you are sleeping, He is working on your situation. He, who neither slumbers nor sleeps (see Psalm 121:3–4), works the night shift for you as you sleep!
