Psalm Sundays: Don’t Let Anger Control You

posted by Jana Melpolder

This week I wanted to share Psalm 4. It talks about peace and what we can do to feel better. This NLT version is taken from Biblegateway.com

Psalm 4

1 Answer me when I call to you,
      O God who declares me innocent.
   Free me from my troubles.
      Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
 3 You can be sure of this:
      The Lord set apart the godly for himself.
      The Lord will answer when I call to him.

 4 Don’t sin by letting anger control you.
      Think about it overnight and remain silent.
                         Interlude

 5 Offer sacrifices in the right spirit,
      and trust the Lord.

 6 Many people say, “Who will show us better times?”
      Let your face smile on us, Lord.
 7 You have given me greater joy
      than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.
 8 In peace I will lie down and sleep,
      for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.
