Thoughts On Psalms: Joy Greater Than New Wine

Psalm 4:6-8
Many are asking, “Who can show us any good?”
Let the light of your face shine upon us O Lord. You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.
I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

There are many who want blessings, but do not know Who gives them. Folks in the world seek happiness, prosperity and well-being. They pursue it with worldly treasure believing joy can be purchased. They are looking for all the good, but do not know on Whom they should depend.

We, you and I, were like that once. God has made it abundantly clear in His Word to each of us that in His Son we are bestowed wonderful blessings; chief among them is a one-to-one relationship with our Father through His Son. We have a Christ-filled life only because we know our Benefactor.

David called out to God, “Let the light of your face shine upon us, O Lord.” He knew on Whom to call. So, too, do we! Let the Light that is Jesus Christ shine in your life.

There is no greater sense of ease and peace than to truly know your Father is watching over you. David’s heart was filled with joy; abundant joy. His joy was greater than that of his enemies whose silos were full and their vats were topped with new wine.

We do not cling to worldly treasure. God is our sufficiency!

God loves us and has a plan that includes you and me. Be at peace. Be a blessing today.
