God builds the house. He watches the city. And He gives His people sleep. He provides that we may rest in His provision. He guides that we might focus on His hand rather than the obstacles around us. He works in yoked tandem that we may know both work and rest.
You are His beloved. And He gives His beloved sleep.
Lay down your over-working hands. Lean against the strong wall He guards and take a breather. He modeled sabbath rest that we might believe Him when He says He provides rest.
The world will not fall apart because you neglected a watch that was not yours to hold. Let Him do what He does. Embrace the rest He provides that you may be energized when the time for work comes.
