“I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.”

Psalm 4: 8 King James Version

The greatest thing we can do for people who are hurting is to place them on the pillow of love and His name is Jesus. It is very important that we bring our loved ones to Jesus at night because it is at night that satan lies to us and gives us doubts. If we will keep our hearts and eyes focused on Jesus, we will have a sweet and peaceful sleep.

There are times when we have days that are frustrating, challenging and stressful. Then there are days that are filled with productivity, joy and happiness. No matter what kind of day we have when we go to bed and lay our head on our pillows, we are laying in the tender arms of Jesus and close to His heart. He is right there with us all night long to protect us and rock us to sleep.

While it is wonderful that He Loves us enough to rock us to sleep and be our pillow of Love we also need to be His pillow of love. He didn’t have a place to lay His precious head when He was born so He was born in a lowly manger. Is He comfortable in our homes? Does He have to listen to arguments and fighting, or does He hear soft gentle words spoken to one another? Do we talk to each other, or does He see us with our eyes glued to the television and ignoring one another?

Have you made a pillow of love for Jesus in your heart? Is he happy with the condition of your heart? It is important that we keep our homes clean but it is far more important we that we allow Jesus to sweep all the bitterness, unforgiveness, sarcasm and criticism from our hearts as often as necessary.
