If the Lord allows us to be awake at night, He might be asking us to change our minds over certain decisions we have made. So, next time this happens to you, why not ask Him what it's all about... but be ready to consider His alternatives.
"By the day the Lord directs His love, at night His song is with me..."
"I will remember my songs in the night. My heart mused and my spirit inquired: 'Will the Lord reject forever? Will He never show His favour again? Has His unfailing love vanished forever? Has His promise fail for all time? Has God forgotten to be merciful? Has His anger withheld His compassion?'... Then I thought, 'To this I will appeal...I will remember...I will meditate...and consider...You led Your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron."
"One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God."
