Bible Verses Elucidate the Causes of Insomnia

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”(17. Colossians 3:2) 


“Because all his days his task is painful and grievous; even at night his mind does not rest. This too is vanity.”(Ecclesiastes 2:23)


Innumerable persons struggle with insomnia. Most people have tight schedule all year round. They go to bed extremely late until sleep deprivation become a routine. We are being impatient that we seek early success. It’s just we are desperate to earn respect from the world. We want to be respected in social gatherings rather than being badly judged.


As you suffer from unshakable anxiety, seek help from God. God will  guard your thoughts and emotions. If you do not receive help from God, check if you commit the 7 deadly sins on a daily basis. As we repent our faults, God will condone our sins. 


10 Bible Verses to Read When You Can’t Fall Asleep at Night 


“When you lie down, you will not be afraid.(Proverbs 3:24)


“Don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”(Matthew 6:34)


“Return to your rest, my soul, for the LORD has been good to you.”(Psalm 116:7 NIV)


“I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the LORD was watching over me.”(Psalm 3:5)


“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.(John 14:27)


“I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.”(Psalm 4:8, KJV)


All you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”(Matthew 11:28-30)


Casting all your worries, troubles or anxieties on God, “because he cares for you.”

(Peter 5:7, ESV)



When you fail to fall sleep, get up and pray. It works for many persons. As you feel more peaceful at heart, you are able to have a sound sleep again.It’s no secret that insomnia has something to do with stress. But it’s more than that. As I read over the Bible, I realize that insomnia has more to do with fear and anxiety comes from fear as well.


Stop worrying and you will be able to have a sound sleep. God arranges everything and makes everything possible. I was the one who questioned about it. But, I witnessed it  from my life experiences and learned to believe that God will reward those who discipline themselves well. Do the right things and stop worrying.  


Set it’s a custom to pray to God before you sleep. Tell him about your worries or fear. And He will set you free. Check if your suffer from the 7 deadly sins, including anger, jealousy, lust, greed, binge eating (emotional eating), pride and laziness( self-indulgence). We might be greedy for life and we might be greedy for love.

As to God’s discipline, it’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” (Roman 8: 28). Do not keep “record of wrongs” (In Hebrews 13:5; 1 Peter 4:8). God will do the justice in due course (Matthew 12:36 NIV). History repeats. Life challenges repeat itself until we correct our unalterable weaknesses. I would say, inner peace is the utmost blessing from God (NLT, Jeremiah 29:11). Negative emotions stop us from seeing God’s blessings behind a traumatic event.手札:老天爺(上帝)想的和我們不同,所以別用這個世界或資本主義的思維去解讀老天爺的想法或做法。不要記他人之惡,因為老天爺(上帝)都記在本子裡了!做該做的事,而不是想做的事。禍福相依,禮物或災難很多時候一時看不透,旁人也看不準。掉牙與產子都是巨痛,但創傷比例偏低,是因為人們給予了事件正面的存在意義,並且相信即便艱難,所有人都能熬過去的意志!所以創傷之所以存在,往往不是事件本身,而是人們的負面解讀和負面標籤!傲慢是聖經當中的惡之首,因為傲慢帶來偏見,偏見引發暴力歧視霸凌與迫害,如種族主義等等。inner peace是老天爺(上帝)給人們的禮物。想著別人的壞,為難了自己,想著別人的好,溫暖了自己!勿低估壞情緒與言語之惡,因為言語也能左右生死。理財,從照顧好自己的健康開始!人在做天在看,老天爺上帝都是證人,自有公斷。中西醫已證實悲傷憂鬱悲觀焦慮是疾病之根源。不安焦慮說的都是恐懼。勿低估甜食之惡(國外研究證實阿茲海默症患者禁糖可望逆轉病情)。學問、宗教和人際關係,最怕道聽塗說和一知半解。放下壞情緒,明天才是真的。一體兩面,隨波逐流有隨波逐流的輕鬆和代價。走不同的路,質疑和落單往往是必然的承受。不屬於你的,只會逗留不會久留。比較有價值的事很可能往往都是既麻煩耗時、沒絕對把握、又考驗耐心的事。高度的執著,也可能是一種自負的暗語。記住自己做過錯誤的判斷,就能裝大自己的彈性。人,勝不過天,盡人事聽天命已足夠,拜拜求心安很好,只是拜拜不等於許願池(老天爺是無法被賄賂的)。自己確信的事,讀聖經與否燒香拜拜與否都不是那麼絕對必要,只要你願意相信老天爺(上帝)時刻關注記錄我們的言行,而願意要求自己柔軟正直自律謙卑憐憫,也就足夠了。互相督促。聖經點出了怠惰、憤怒與追逐私利之惡,強調柔軟、自律與耐心的重要。聖經點出7 deadly sins 與7 heavenly virtues. 不支持廢死,偏好新加坡的法律,不犯法就無須擔心法律嚴格。基本人權,只有好好做人的人才可以使用基本人權!上帝眼裡,也有不可寬恕的罪,所以才有地獄。一般人對於好人的定義與上帝對於人類的基本要求差距很大,讀了聖經就會明白上帝對人類的基本期許,大約是儒家的聖人準則那樣高的期待。沒有人完美無誤,根據聖經的學習,用力去愛會是解答。
