Awaiting the Blessing
Psalm 4

We can experience the peace of God as we wait upon the blessing of God. In Psalm 4, David leads us to two realities which, if we keep before us, will allow the peace of God to well up within us even as we wait on him.
I. We can experience peace as we wait for God’s blessing when we reflect upon the character of God.
II. We can experience peace as we wait for God’s blessing when we remember that we are set aside by God.
As those who have been set apart by God, don’t allow anger or fear to derail our trust in and obedience to God.
Conclusion: Be still, my soul! the Lord is on thy side; Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain; Leave to thy God to order and provide; In every change He faithful will remain. Be still, my soul! thy best, thy heavenly Friend thro’ thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

“To Tell the Truth” is the title of the series of messages which Pastor Neal will begin on Sunday, February 7.
