“Sleep in Heavenly peace” is a beautiful melodic phrase taken from the timeless Christmas Carol classic, Silent Night.
Baby Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords slept peacefully in his makeshift crib in a humble stall, while Herod and Jerusalem were troubled about his birth (Matthew 2:3).
The fully grown Jesus slept so soundly in a boat that was tossed and pummeled by waves of a raging storm his disciples had to shake him to rouse Him (Luke 8:22-25).
Peter slept peacefully even while shackled on either side to two Roman soldiers, imprisoned and awaiting an unfairly rigged trial in the morning (Acts 12:5-6).
For those grieving the loss of loved ones and dealing with chaos, I pray that the peace of God would fill your hearts this season.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
