For you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety

Sharing Psalm 4 here, which has been on my heart. Sleeping in peace every night is a blessing I often take for granted. But many of my friends don’t sleep well. In fact, most of my close friends don’t sleep well. I’ve been recommending this Psalm hoping this Psalm could be of comfort and bring peaceful sleep.

Good night, my friends.

Good night, friends I have yet to meet.

May you be at peace and sleep so that you will be restored by rest and have courage and strength to face tomorrow.

I recommend reading it over and over for desired effect. 😴

Peace

Psalm 4

Confident Plea for Deliverance from Enemies.

To the leader: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

1 Answer me when I call, O God of my right! You gave me room when I was in distress. Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.

2 How long, you people, shall my honor suffer shame? How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies?

Selah

3 But know that the Lord has set apart the faithful for himself; the Lord hears when I call to him.

4 When you are disturbed, do not sin; ponder it on your beds, and be silent.

Selah

5 Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the Lord.

6 There are many who say, “O that we might see some good! Let the light of your face shine on us, O Lord!”

7 You have put gladness in my heart more than when their grain and wine abound.

8 I will both lie down and sleep in peace; for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety.
