Psalm 4--Confident Plea for Deliverance from Enemies

Again, a statement of David's surety in God's protection and blessing. In a day where we have explained away so many things, when "trusted" institutions let us down again and again, it is difficult to TRUST God. I really wonder if it was always so hard. All the bits and pieces of knowledge about the world--not even the controversial things like evolution and cosmology, but smaller things like easy electrical power, calculus, fast food, automatic tax withholding, etc. Does removing so many basic worries make it harder to trust God? Is that why the global church grows so dynamically in the developing countries?

Please, Lord, help me to trust in you, to place all my burdens in your hands and not try to bear them on my all-too-narrow shoulders.
