When you receive Jesus into your heart, He will never ever leave you. Whether you are awake or asleep Jesus is always there and he surrounds and fills you with his love and peace. Singing this to a very special little girl I have experienced watching and sensing Jesus love and peace wash over her as she would listen to the words of this song and then go straight to sleep without a murmur. The power of the Holy Spirit is amazing and the love of Jesus so very precious. I pray as this lullaby is sung to young ones at bedtime that the love and peace that can only come from the Lord fills both the child and the adult with them. No matter what age we are, we are never on our own and we can rest in Jesus.
Proverbs 3 v 24 (NIV) “When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.“
John 14 v 27 (NIV) “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.“
Psalm 121 v 7 – 8 (NIV) “The Lord will keep you from all harm- He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.“
