I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep - Most men lie down, and most sleep, daily, for without rest and steep life could not be preserved; but alas! David had then two great blessings, rest by sleep, and peace in his soul. He had a happy soul; and when he lay down on his bed, his body soon enjoyed its repose, as the conscience was in peace. And he had a third blessing, a confidence that he should sleep in safety. And it was so. No fearful dreams disturbed his repose, for he had a mind tranquillized by the peace of God.
After a long day of work, whether it be stressful or not, it is important we all sleep and recharge our batteries. For some it is very easy to fall right asleep, and for others it can be very stressful. Sleeplessness, insomnia, and stress may cause us to stay awake longer than expected. We sometimes have trouble finding a relaxed state of mind. So we look up to God, and He helps put our minds to rest. Being able to lie down with no fear is something we should all be able to do at night. Unfortunately, dangerous parts of the world make it hard to have peace of mind as a Christian.
