Psalm 4

Find Peace in God

Psalm four seems to be written from the perspective of a very righteous (David) person who has complete and total confidence in God. There is one verse in particular that stands out to me, and that’s verse eight:

8 In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, LORD,
make me dwell in safety.

I like this verse because this is where I would like to get to some day – finding peace and rest in God. There are times where I get very anxious, and I need to understand that things happen on God’s time and according to his will and not mine.
