We can correct and recognize quicker when our minds are running a muck while we are awake and alert, however it is a totally different thing when we are asleep and should be resting. As I slept last night my mind entertained several dreams all of which challenged and even caused tension until Spirit brought to memory scripture that was given to me many years ago in my youth. Once I began to recite this scripture my mind calmed down, my heart beat regulated and my body totally relaxed, removing the flair up that had rendered within me fibro pain. I always fall asleep to wonderful meditation music, however the mind has a great ego problem and finds a way to disrupt peace anyway it can. I am very thankful for what was written centuries ago. When Spirit interrupts and bring peace everything else has to be silent! This scripture was my prayer during the remaining hours of my sleep. When I rose up I shared my experience with my spouse, began to Praise God and remembered that I am in control of my Mind.
What I know is this, even when we are in a sleep state we must always be ready! Thank God for every instrument given us at the right time, always on time.
(Psalm 91:1-10 TIB)-You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High and pass the night in the shadow of Shanda, say: “YHWH, my refuge and my mountain fortress, my God in whom I trust!”
For YHWH says: “I will rescue you from the snare, and shield you from the poisoned arrows. I will cover you with my pinions; under my wings you will take refuge; my faithfulness will shield you.
You have no need to fear the prowlers of the night or the arrows that flies by day, the plaque that lurks in the shadows or the scourge that stalks at noon. Though a thousand fall at your left side and ten thousand at your right, it will never come near you. You will see it pass you by, and witness the punishment of the corrupt with your own eyes. Because you have made me your refuge and have me as your stronghold, no evil will befall you, and no disaster will come near your tent.
And So It Is! Amen! Ashai! Hallelujah!
