Managing our Thoughts & Emotions according to Psalm 4

For our busy and stress-out friends in this challenging world...

Psa 4:4 Don't sin by letting anger control you. Think about it overnight and remain silent.
  • Don't react in anger immediately.
  • Wait till the evening to think about it.
  • It may be not as bad as you first thought.
  • Even for the injustice and betrayal did to you.
  • The Lord is in charge...so...

Psa 4:5 Offer sacrifices in the right spirit, and [trust] the LORD.
  • Trust the Lord to get justice done for you. Don't take it into your own hand.
Psa 4:7 You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine. 
  • So what if you don't have the riches .... you have the greater value of joy ...
  • After all, why do you pursue wealth and fame? Aren't you going after joy, happiness, satisfaction?

Psa 4:8 In peace I will lie down and sleep, for You alone, O LORD, will keep me safe. 
  • It is the Lord who gives security and peace.
  • Wealth and fame do not keep you safe at all.
