Listen to “Jesus King of Angels” by Fernando Ortega
Several years ago, my dad sent me an e-mail with a link to this beautiful bedtime song..It’s was not new, but it was for me. As soon as I started to listen, I fell in love. It’s one of the most peaceful songs that I have ever heard; in through my ears and straight to my heart. It is just a beautiful prayer of peace over our sleep and our days until we rest again.
I played it for my children as I tucked them in, and they loved it. They smiled and laid peacefully ready to fall asleep…which was pretty unusual at the time! They listened to it twice before I had to shut the room down. I reassured them that I would give them their own cd with the song as soon as I could. Every so often I play it for them at bedtime, and fall asleep to it myself. It is truly a blessing for our family, and I hope it blesses you and yours.
This song truly speaks for itself, but sometimes we need reminded of Jesus’ hand in our lives. This world and this life have so many uncertainties, but one thing remains constant, and that is that Jesus will never leave nor forsake us. He is our overcomer. John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” We have nothing to fear, because our Lord, Jesus keeps, protects, comforts, guides, provides for, delivers, strengthens, heals, redeems, sanctifies us, and intercedes on our behalf.
Psalm 4:8 In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.
Psalm 8:1-9 LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet: all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild, the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Lord, I thank You for Your peace each night as I close my eyes to sleep, and I thank You for each morning that I rise to live another day. My life is truly a gift from You. I have nothing to fear because You have overcome the world! Amen.
