Behold, I AM with you in the night watches. Therefore, do not be fearful, Beloved.
Do not let your heart be troubled. Lie down and sleep in My Peace. I neither slumber nor sleep and My eyes are always upon you. You dwell in safety. Even when you are sound asleep, I open your ears and seal your instruction.
I give you dreams and visions to edify, instruct and comfort you. My dreams and visions have no fear involved. For I haven’t given you a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.
I command My lovingkindness in the daytime and My Song will be with you in the night. You are My Beloved Bride and I AM Your Husband and Maker.
The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. I take great pleasure in you. I beautify My afflicted ones with salvation. Your sleep shall be sweet. You shall not fear the terror by night or the pestilence that walks in the darkness.
Exult in My Glory, sing for joy on your bed, My Warrior Bride, for Your Deliverer has placed a two-edged sword in your hand. You have nothing to fear. I AM with you always. Sleep in My heavenly peace.
