VIDEO: Dreams versus memories
Paul tells us plainly that there is "now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1).
Paul also says that "if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new" (II Corinthians 5:17).
If you continue to condemn yourself after receiving the grace and forgiveness of Christ, isn't there a sense in which you are denying the faith and crucifying the Son of God afresh (Hebrews 6:6)?
What memories are holding you back?
What can you not forgive yourself about from your past?
What would you do today if there were no limitations?
How do you know if a dream or vision is from God?
God, help me know the difference between your Spirit-led promptings and visions and the selfish desires of my flesh. Help me to forgive myself for all the sinful things I've done to hurt you in my past. Create in me a clean heart oh God. In Jesus name, Amen.
PHYSICAL LESSON: SLEEP
The one-third of our lives that we spend sleeping is far from unproductive. Time spent getting proper sleep plays a direct role in how full, energetic and successful the other two-thirds of our lives will be when awake. For example, consider the body’s organs and the important role they play within the body. By following good sleeping patterns, the major organs of the body are being supported. High quality sleep supports the kidneys and liver to optimize waste removal and cleansing functions. When asleep, the body is able to rebuild, cleanse, repair and re-set the functions that are maintaining cellular health, protecting a person from illness and disease. 97% of adults need anywhere from 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night. One study’s findings promoted 7 1/2 hours as ideal. There has been a gene mutation identified as gene DEC2, that allows people to need only 6 hours each night, but this is found in only 3% of the population. If you are not one of the 3% possessing that gene, then getting less than required is not training the body to get used to less sleep. You are simply becoming sleep deprived and creating all the issues associated with sleep deprivation.
The first, most important step demonstrating an understanding of the great value of sleep and how much the body needs sleep is to make sleep a priority. A person must schedule sleep like any other daily activity, so put it on the "to-do list" and cross it off every night. Sleep is not the thing to do only after everything else is done. What is needed is to stop doing other things in order to get the sleep needed. Give yourself a chance to get at least 7 hours each night. This means if you know you have to get up at 6:00 a.m., then you should be in bed by at least 10:45 p.m.
