Rest and sleep declarations

In the world system, doing one thing after another, wanting everything fast, always being busy is the norm. Whereas in the Kingdom of God, rest is important, being restful is the ideal approach to life. Here are powerful declarations that will banish anxiety, worry and welcome rest from God into your life.

Good rest and sleep ensures your mind is alert to think well, make the right decisions. You will become sensitive to the nudges, whisper, and voice of the Lord. The declarations are powerful to bring change in your life because these are based on the living Word of God, i.e. verses from the Bible. The verse reference number is written in the bracket in case you wish to look up. In the majority of instances the verses are paraphrased to be declarative in nature.
