Lifeway.PH is underway and as of now I’m inviting friends to contribute articles. Please uphold us as we write for local pastors and ministry leaders for this website.
Anyways, here’s some quotes from the book, Thank God for Bedtime by Geoff Robson published by Matthias Media. If you like these quotes please get the book by clicking here.
“God has been alert, fully functioning, and perfectly attentive for every single nanosecond of history. What’s more, not
sleeping has never caused him to become anything less than perfect for even a moment. I get grumpy and irritable when I have to wake up half an hour early; God has never slept, yet
remains utterly flawless.Stop and ponder that for just a moment longer: God. Never. Sleep.”
“God never disregards his people—not for a second—and our ways are never hidden from him. Why? Because he simply never gets tired. He never sleeps.”
“If you wake up tomorrow morning still trusting in Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, it’s because God has given you the gift of ongoing faith in Jesus.”
“Declaring that God is good, even in a seemingly chaotic world, is more than wishful thinking; it’s a historically-based, cross-centred trust in God’s character. The only thing better than knowing all the answers is knowing that God knows all the answers and that, somehow, through it all, he’s working for good. “
“Every day, God gives us the gift of being able to climb into bed and leave everything in his hands. Sleep is incredibly humbling—and therefore incredibly glorifying to the God who never sleeps. God does not expect us to be super-human. He expects us to work hard, and he graciously gives us responsibilities to meet”
“We were never meant to eat the toxic bread of anxious toil. So God invites us to rest, to trust him to provide for us, and to receive the delightful gift of sleep.”
“God cares much more about our character than about our competencies. He cares much more about our works being good works—works done in holiness, in love for others—than about the sheer volume of works we accomplish.”
“Because we are whole beings, our sleep is complex and multifaceted. The more we understand the physicality of the good things that happen when we sleep, the more we’ll be driven to seek it, and to praise God when we find it.”
