Spiritually? Matt 13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came...."
During sleep, destinies may be brightened or made shallow.
Battles of life are majorly lost when a believer sleeps "a sleep of death".
God's sovereignty is best illustrated by His power over slumber or sleep.
He is a great and impeccable Watcher over our souls.
