In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.(Psalms 4:8)
God gives peace that is immune to your circumstances. David experienced it as he wrote this psalm. Even when he experienced danger in his life, he could “lie down and sleep.” This is not a superficial rest (Jonah 1:6). But a peace you experience when God is your “safety.” Maybe you are seeking peace through hoping for a quick end to this pandemic. Or maybe you are seeking peace through positive thinking. Perhaps you are depending on other people in your life to assure you of rest. God offers an infinitely more reliable peace, one that will gift you joy beyond the best circumstances this life has to offer (v7). Go to Jesus in prayer, in His word and with His people as you rest in the tender care of God who calls you His own (v3).
