Sleep is a kind of judgment for how you spent your wakeful moments. It is the moment of reckoning of what actions, thoughts, foods, and conversations you consumed while your were awake. It is a time for God to speak, angels or demons, or the entrance into the spiritual realm. Sleep is the necessary agent that connects the human body into the spiritual world for a recharge.
The Bible talks about the sleep of people who practice wickedness and are without God. It says ” they cannot sleep unless they have done wrong; they are robbed of sleep unless they have made someone stumble” (Proverbs 4:16). These people like white supremacist are forced into perpetually making plans to harm black people so that they can get a decent night of sleep.
On the other hand, the wise person lies down they will not be afraid; When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet (Proverbs 3:24). The sleep of a laborer is sweet, whether they eat little or much, but as for the rich, their abundance permits them no sleep (Ecclesiastes 5:12).
Good and bad sleep is a reflection of your heart. Sleep paralysis is a sign that your heart is not at rest or at peace with God. It is an evil spirit as some have surmised. Some call it incubus or succubus for the sexual visitations in sleep, I call him dreamer. He is an evil spirit that seeks to bind you in fear. When you meditate on television before you sleep or leave it on, this is an open door into your flesh for evil spirits to flow in. If you leave anything on when you sleep it should be the raw King James Version Bible being read.
When a man or woman is at peace with God their sleep will be sweet. Notice Jonah in the belly of the boat fast asleep in the middle of the storm, while everyone else on the ship was shaken with fear and sleepless. His sleep was sweet even in disobedience. When you tighten your relationship with Jesus powerful things happen. Good sleep is a wonderful by-product.
People living in fear are not carrying out the purpose that God has for them. They are restless because they know they are living in a perpetual state of disobedience without acknowledging God.
Better sleep happens when you spend time feasting on the love of God. Strengthen your relationship with Jesus. Make melody in your heart before the Lord. Be distracted by him and your sleep will be sweet.
