Sleep is good for your health, but it becomes dangerous when it is excessive. By a lot I mean going to bed and never waking up at any time during the night to pray. This article presents 6 dangers of sleeping too much.
Sleep is the weakest point at which Satan and demons can attack you.
Fisrt, by sleeping too much you are giving the Devil and demons an opportunity to attack you. Nowhere in the Bible is this truth more elucidated than in the case of King Saul. Instead of waking up in the night to pray, King Saul and all his body guards went into deep sleep!
1 Samuel 26:7-8 says:
So David and Abishai went to the army by night, and there was Saul,
lying asleep inside the camp with his spear stuck in the ground near his head.
Abner and the soldiers were lying around him.
8 Abishai said to David, “Today God has delivered your enemy into your hands.
Now let me pin him to the ground with one thrust of the spear; I won’t strike him twice.
Demons can easily manipulate a sleeping person.
Second, demons can easily manipulate a person in dreams. By sleeping a lot you increase the chances of Satanic manipulations through dreams.
By sleeping a lot, you are cutting down your prayer time.
Jesus told his sleeping disciples in Mathew 26:41 that:
Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.
Furthermore, if God blessed King Solomon in a dream, then know that Satan can steal your blessings in a dream.
Sometimes Satan attacks by calling souls of sleeping Christians to his meetings.
In addition, Satan may call your soul to his meetings when you are sleeping. When you sleep too much, you may increase the chances of your soul participating in Satanic meetings.
Satan wants to contaminate the lives of Christians as they sleep.
Also, the Devil and demons always want to contaminate the souls of sleeping Christians. They do this by feeding your soul with defiled food, and through sexual activity with demons.
You are in great danger if you cannot get out bed to pray.
