Chapter 4
In chapter 4, the first few verses we see how David rested his confidence in the God’s faithfulness.

Re: Songs for Our Temple (Week 2: Psalms 4-6)
I like the verse from yesterday when I was reading chapter 5 verse 8. “Lead me O Lord in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.” There is a lot out there in the world that doesn’t want to have any association with Jesus Christ. It’s like they want to lead you another way that in their eyes seems better than having Christ.

Re: Songs for Our Temple (Week 2: Psalms 4-6)
Yesterday reading through chapter 6; I stopped at verses 6, it made me think, of when the world of my life is falling apart in front of me. The feeling of feeling all alone, no one really cares. That in the darkness of your shadow's you have nothing but hopelessness. then you need to pray out verse 2-3 of the same chapter. It reads, "Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing; heal me for my bones are troubled. But you O Lord- how long?" Sometimes we may be going through a trail that God is teaching us a lesson or making us stronger so that we may minister to others. You may notice the David doesn't go to something in his own strengths to make him to remove him from pain. so, when your heart is singing in lament keep focusing on the Lord and cry out to Him, as you see David did in this Psalms.

Amen, Jim, to all of your comments. I love your wise words on how we approach difficulties -- I'm so glad our God lets us come to Him even with laments.

Re: Songs for Our Temple (Week 2: Psalms 4-6)
I also really appreciate how we read in Ps. 6:4 that we can ask this because of God's "unfailing love." He delivers us because even though we grow weak and weary, He does not. We fail even in our good attempts, God does not. So, we can cry out for rescue knowing He is steadfast.
