Times of Trouble

Psalm 4:1-8

(Note that this psalm is both a prayer to God and an exhortation to the psalmist himself and those around him.)

What do you do in times of trouble and distress?

  • Call on God! Seek him. (v1)
  • Don’t turn to trust other things, people, or gods. Only God is worthy of my trust and faith! (v2)
  • Remember that God separates the godly from the world for himself. You are his! (v3)
  • When things are frustrating and irritating (like my children, the state of our nation, evil) do not sin. (v4)
  • Contemplate your own heart, motives and actions each day. (v4)
  • Continue to worship with integrity even when things are difficult. TRUST! (v5)
  • Ask the Lord for his favor (v6)
  • Is God more satisfying to you than abundance and prosperity? (v7)
  • Know that his peace can pervade He is your safety. And he’s the only safe dwelling there is! (v8)
