Mid-week Devotional

Finishing the week right, with the Lord….

Psalm 4

Answer when I call, my saving God.
In my troubles, you cleared a way;
show me favor; hear my prayer.
How long will you people mock my honor,
love what is worthless, chase after lies?
Know that the Lord works wonders for the faithful;
the Lord hears when I cry out.
Tremble and do not sin;
upon your beds ponder in silence.
Offer fitting sacrifice
and trust in the Lord.
Many say, “May we see better times!
Lord, show us the light of your face!”
But you have given my heart more joy
than they have when grain and wine abound.
In peace I shall both lie down and sleep,
for you alone, Lord, make me secure.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful passage. I am still reeling from the SCOTUS decision today. You helped return my focus to what is really important. No matter what happens, God is still in control.

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this much-needed post! Frankly, the words of Psalm 4 are perfect for today. We must always trust in Jesus, always! JESUS, I TRUST IN YOU!

Eowyn… I NEEDED that prayer TODAY! After hearing about the SC’s decision on Obamacare I was nearly ‘beside myself’ with anger and frustration. It’s good to be reminded that my Lord will work all things out for MY (and for OUR) good when we are His children! I’ll be repeating this prayer several times today I have no doubt. Thanks again for choosing it as the devotional. God Bless! 🙂

I hope it’s alright to post this here (the Jewish bible interpretation of this passage). As I said in my comment I was SO angry and upset because of how the SC abandoned the American people with their decision today. I was so ministered to by this Psalms today and love reading scripture in some other translations. I felt better about my anger after this version (particularly verse 5): Psalm 4 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 4 For the leader. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David: 2 O God, my vindicator! Answer me when I call! When I was distressed,… Read more »
