In the Middle of The Night

“In the middle of the night,” is a thought that congers up fear and sleeplessness. It might bring regrets and sweats and move to turn on the light. I suggest that the latter is the real solution. “God is light and in Him there is no darkness” (1John 1:5).
Job was a troubled man brought down by Satan with God’s OK. The onslaught was to teach us all who is in control. “Who gives songs in the night?” (Job 35:10). God gives songs in the night. This was the title of one of my favorite late night Christian radio shows.  Beautiful and meditative music played, along with Scripture reading by the renowned baritone voice of Bill Pierce.

The Psalmist reminds us, “On his law I meditate day and night” (Psalm 1:2). God’s word never returns void, it always accomplishes its purpose Isaiah 55:11 reminds us.  Psalm 91:5 tells us “You will fear the terror of night.” Isaiah teaches that, ”He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as you are doing” (Isaiah 5:10-11).

In speaking of heaven, John the “Revelator” says, “the city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. The nations walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there” (Revelation 21:23-25). 

Cast Your Cares, is a gospel song by Tim Timmons with staying power (In The Middle Of The Night Lyrics - Song Lyrics | MetroLyrics
In the middle of the night
When worry finds me
In the middle of the fight
When strength is gone
In the middle of a fire
When fear is closing in
You are, you are my song
You’re my hope when hope is gone

So, I will cast my cares on you the almighty
I will cast my cares cause you are good
I will cast my cares on you cause you love me
You love me
Oh, oh because you love me

Oh, Oh
Oh, Oh, oh

In the middle of the night
When worry finds me
In the middle of the fight
When strength is gone
In the middle of a fire
When fear is closing in
You are, you are my song
You’re my hope when hope is gone

So, I will cast my cares on you the almighty
I will cast my cares cause you are good
I will cast my cares on you cause you love me
You love me
Oh, Oh, because you love me
Oh, Oh, because you love me

God of glory
You are able
Through your power
To be faithful
God of mercy
Every moment
You are near to me (2x)

So, I will cast my cares on you the almighty
I will cast my cares cause you are good
I will cast my cares on you cause you love me
You love me
Oh, Oh, Oh because you love me
Oh, Oh, Oh because you love me

So in the middle of the night
I will pray with confidence
In a middle of a fight
You are greater still
In a middle of a fire
You’re love is holding me
You are, you are my song
You’re my hope when hope is gone.
Place in body part

Place in body part

Yes, god is our confidence in the middle of the night, because He loves us. Cast your cares on Him when you wake in the middle of the night.
