F.B. Meyer's 'Through the Bible' Commentary

Psalms 4

Verses 1-8

Morning and Evening Prayers

Psalms 3:1-19.3.8 ; Psalms 4:1-19.4.8

These psalms probably date from David’s flight before Absalom, 2 Samuel 16:1-10.16.23 . It is the perfection of trust to be able to sleep when our foes are many and set upon our destruction. So Jesus slept, Mark 4:38 ; and Peter, Acts 12:6 . Be sure that you are where God would have you to be, and then resign yourself to His loving care. Even though pursued by the results of your sins, you will find that God will save you, on condition of your being contrite.

Let us begin the day and close it with thanksgivings and prayers. Godly means having the power to love. Dost thou love God and His saints? Then know that He has set thee apart-that is, separated thee-for Himself. Seek His will alone. Be content to let the world go by. Thou hast no need to envy the prosperous worldling. God suffices for heaven; why not for earth?
