At the end of the day, with all that’s going on in our world, where, or on what does your heart and mind focus? In Psalm 4, David's circumstances were really bad—and no doubt the day had not gone well. But rather than complaining to God about how horrible things were, David continues to call upon the Lord! He prays to the Lord in verse 1, "...You have relieved me in my distress;" In a sense, he is counseling himself—even as he is praying to the Lord. And as he thinks about his situation, he reminds himself of God's faithfulness to answer. Perhaps this evening you can do the same. Read carefully the last couple of verses in this Psalm and note the encouraging promises to those who trust in the Lord: "LORD, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us. You have put gladness in my heart, more than in the season that their grain and wine increased. I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety." Psalm 4:6b-8
