Proverbs 6:4 says, “Give not [unnecessary] sleep to your eyes, nor slumber to your eyelids.” The Bible is saying, “Get the sleep you need, but then wake up!” Too much sleep brings poverty. It is like a robber who steals from you and makes you helpless. (See Proverbs 6:11).
Too little sleep will ruin your day too. Being tired and cranky doesn’t help you hear from God. Make rest a priority, but then get up. Start moving first thing in the morning, saying, “Thank You Lord, that I am alive for another day with You. I believe I am anointed to do what You ask me to do today. My youth is renewed like the eagles just as You promised.”
Love Not Sleep
It is interesting that our popular greeting is “Good Morning”. Somewhere along the way, someone realized that if we get started off right in the morning, we will have a good day.
Proverbs 20:13 says, “Love not sleep, lest you come to poverty; open your eyes and you will be satisfied with bread” And Psalm 57:8-9 encourages us to wake up ready to sing praises: Awake, my glory (my inner self); awake, harp and lyre! I will awake right early [I will awaken the dawn]! I will praise and give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations.”
