Psalm 4:4 (NKJV) Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah

David is addressing his enemies, in that while they sleep, they search their hearts and realize that it is ridiculous to fight against God. Such clearheaded reflections would silence their slandering talk and end their wicked plans. This verse also has an application to us as well. The LORD says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! (Psalm 46:10 NKJV). And the Apostle Paul stresses this point, saying “Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord” (Romans 12:19 NKJV). Paul quotes from Deuteronomy 32:35 (NKJV) where the LORD says, “Vengeance is Mine, and recompense; Their foot shall slip in due time; For the day of their calamity is at hand, And the things to come hasten upon them.’” When someone angers you, take a step back and calm yourself. For even angry thoughts towards someone is breaking the heart of the Law. Meditate within your sanctuary within your heart and rest. “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath” (Ephesians 4:26 NKJV). My friend, be still and trust in God to intervene on your behalf. For while it is right to be angry in God’s cause, it is never right to be angry for our own cause.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
