A Remedy for Insomnia (Derek Prince)

Psalm 3:5–6
I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me. I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.

There is a remedy for insomnia. How many of you, I wonder, know what it really is to have the assurance of quiet, blessed, restoring sleep each night. Who can count the millions in our contemporary civilization who are tormented by sleeplessness, by insomnia? But there’s a man who had found a remedy: I will lie down and sleep. I wake again because the Lord sustains me. You may think that that man did not have the pressures that you have. He wasn’t subjected to all the trials. He didn’t have the worries and concerns. But you are very mistaken. He probably had many enemies, more pressures, was more confronted by danger, than at any time you’ve been in your own life. But he’d found the secret.

I lie down and sleep. I wake again. I will not fear. Why? Because the Lord sustains me. Each night he committed himself to the Lord. He lay down in confidence in the Lord. He knew that his soul was safe in the Lord’s keeping. He could sleep and he could awake without anxiety, without fear, without the torment of sleeplessness. If you’re troubled with that awful torment of insomnia, remember David’s words and apply them.

Hong Kong Triad Boss Became a Christian, but Lived in Disobedience for Seven Years, Until God Showed Him Hell

Teddy Hung was the gang leader of 14K – the second largest triad in the world with 25,000 members across the globe. However, the guilt of the many lives that he had ruined because of his triad activities weighed on his conscience so greatly that although Hung was successful and made a lot of money, he suffered severe insomnia. Hung sought many doctors for treatment, but they were unable to cure his insomnia.

One day, Hung told God that if God would heal him of his insomnia, he would become a Christian. Amazingly, Hung was healed instantly, and this led him to start attending church.

However, Hung was not willing to put behind his triad-related businesses. At the same time, his businesses started to turn sour, and he started to feel very conflicted about becoming a Christian.

Eventually, Hung decided to leave church for a period of time so that he could devote himself to making money. However, God had not given up on Hung, and disciplined Hung through various circumstances in Hung’s life.

In total, Hung lived in disobedience to God for 7 years after becoming a Christian, but it came to a climax when God revealed hell to Hung, after which Hung once and for all gave up the triad life and went to bible school.

Hung’s amazing testimony can be viewed in the Youtube video below:
