Sleep On It

I thought this was a great section from Job 33 (verses 14-18).  You’ve often heard this great advice when struggling with a decision – “sleep on it”.  Here Job is assured that God speaks to us – even in our sleep – to help keep us on track.  That is cool in my book.

“Indeed God speaks once,
Or twice, yet no one notices it.

“In a dream, a vision of the night,
When sound sleep falls on men,
While they slumber in their beds,

Then He opens the ears of men,
And seals their instruction,

That He may turn man aside from his conduct,
And keep man from pride;

He keeps back his soul from the pit,
And his life from passing over into Sheol.
