Psalm 4: Distraction to Satisfaction

Psalm 4: Distraction to Satisfaction

Start With God

Surely we should all speak the more boldly to men if we had constant converse with God. He who dares to face his Maker will not tremble before the sons of men.

CHarles Spurgeon

Psalm 4:1a

Matthew 16:33

Remember What He’s Done


Psalm 4:4

Not all men are called to be hermits, but all men need enough silence and
solitude in their lives to enable the deep inner voice of their own true self to be
heard at least occasionally. When that inner voice is not heard, when man cannot attain to the spiritual peace that comes from being perfectly at one with his true self, his life is always miserable and exhausting. For he cannot go on happily for long unless he is in contact with the springs of spiritual life which are hidden in the depths of his own soul. If man is constantly exiled from his own home, locked out of his own spiritual solitude, he ceases to be a true person. He no longer lives as a man.
