Best Bible Verses for Insomnia

There are millions of people who suffer from insomnia … especially today. People are over-worked, stressed and anxious about the future which has a direct impact on sleep. There are many other contributing factors as well such as certain eating habits, staying up too late, not enough exercise, etc. Fortunately, there is a powerful, effective and simple way to combat insomnia but it will take commitment to achieve the desired results — sleep!

If you are looking to combat insomnia, we need to get your mind relaxed. One of the most harmful practices to healthy sleep is staying up late worrying about what is out of our control, scrolling the Internet, watching TV, etc. Instead, shut down all electronics at a reasonable time (at least two hours before bedtime). Then, get in the habit of praying. Yes, pray! Ask God to help you calm your mind and your spirit, and after you have prayed prayerfully meditate on the Word of God. Now this is key. The Word of God is alive and nurturing. Repetitiveness of Scripture verses will cause you to become relaxed and sleepy. What’s more, the soothing and hope-filled Word of God will fill all of your senses with a peace that transcends understanding. Divine peace, attained only through that which is holy (God and His Word), is what will lead to a calm soul allowing the body to fully and completely relax and, ultimately, sleep soundly.

The first few nights incorporating a new routine of Scripture meditation may feel awkward because you’re in the process of breaking an old habit. But be patient. Go easy on yourself. Night after night, just keep trusting God. His Word will begin seeping into to your soul, and one night you will find yourself laying your head on your pillow and — wala! You will finally and restfully awaken to the birds chirping and the sun rising.

For anyone struggling with sleep, these Best Bible Verses for Insomnia are for you. Give yourself time. Be patient, don’t worry, and trust God. By placing these Scripture quotes in your heart you will soon begin to receive the results you’ve been wanting and needing.
