Peace in the Lord a look at Psalm 4


(V1) The Psalmist shows in this Psalm who we should call on in times of need. He calls upon the Lord. Despite his suffering he calls on the Lord. He does not curse the Lord. He is aware of the holiness and supremacy of God in all matters. This is much like Jesus in the garden of tears. In the depths of anguish and pain He chooses the will of the Father.

(V2,3) The Psalmist is disgusted by the way the precious things of God are ridiculed. How the glory of God is turned to shame. In like manner Jesus cried over Jerusalem, and he cried out in the garden and he cried out on the cross. As the saying goes 'It is always darkest before the dawn.' Indeed scripture itself says 'Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.' And in the words of one famous preacher 'It's Friday, but Sunday is coming.'
