Scripture for Memory and Meditation #5

Today's Scripture:
Psalm 16:7 (NASB)
"I will bless the LORD who has counseled me;
indeed, my mind instructs me in the night."

As someone who has bouts of not being able to sleep at night this scripture has meant a lot to me. For anyone who has struggled through a sleepless night, you know how the mind is assaulted. Sometimes it's assaulted with worry or fear, fretting or even planning out the next day; sometimes it's just a mangle of thoughts hitting you from all sides with no rhyme or reason. It is encouraging that I can hold to this promise that my LORD will counsel me and instruct my thoughts in the night. I don't have to succumb to the assault. Thank you Jesus!

Amen to that! His Word is good isn't it!

Blessings, and may you lie down and sleep in peace tonight, for He gives His beloved sleep!

Amazing! I just came to your blog after you visited mine. Wouldn't you know that just last night I didn't sleep well! Thank you for posting Psalms 16:7!

Hey Trina
Thanks for stopping by today. I just wanted to tell you that I have the same book you do, the one with all 3. They are all great books and have encouraged me to go deeper in my walk with the Lord, allowing Him to break me where I need to be broken, and showing me areas where I need to be more surrendered to Him. I just started the one on holiness and look forward to what God is going to show me through it...

Have a wonderful day!

Thanks for this post...I am among those who struggle with sleep at times. Some of the best prayer times have occurred during my sleepless nights, though!
