God’s Protective Presence

Tap here for a video meditation on Psalm 4

King David’s anointing for intimacy with the Lord comes through deeply and sweetly in this psalm. Pray it often throughout the day and especially as your night prayer. Commit all or part of it to memory.

The verse 4 deserves special reflection. If you fulfill the second part of the verse first, then you will be less likely to sin. When we yield in a reactive manner to anger, sin occurs. Place a silent buffer zone between the feeling of anger and your response to it.

Whatever might have made David angry, his meditative space has enlarged his awareness. The overwhelming sense of God’s protective presence to him makes the source of his anger a mere speck against the shining light of the Lord’s countenance before him.
