Psalm 4:3 – You can be sure of this: the Lord set apart the godly for himself. The Lord will answer when I call to him… 8 I will lie down (in peace) and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.
Why do you worry my son? Why does anxiety fill your days? Do you not believe I am near? Do you think that I will not hear? Look at my promises for you. Look! I want you to be sure of my promises. I will answer you when you call. I will always answer – if not immediately, then always eventually.
Do not lose heart in the long-suffering. Long-suffering is the time between your call and my answer. Yet it is for the joy set before you that you can bear the fruit of long-suffering, with joy and expectancy. You can be sure that I will answer. You can be sure that if you ask, I will answer. If you seek, you will find. If you knock, the door will be opened to you. Long-suffering is the fruit you will bear in the time between the problem and the promise. Do not lose heart in the journey. I am faithful. You can be sure of this.
Rest. Rest assured that I am trustworthy and faithful. I will set a watch over my word to make sure it performs that which I intended for it. Lie down, sleep, and rest. Do not worry or be afraid. Let my peace fill your entire being, for I have given you a promise that I cannot break. Do not fail to enter into the promised land because of your unbelief. Unbelief will rob you of the promises. I swear you will never enter into my rest if you drawback because of unbelief. Instead, rest assured that when you call I will answer. Sleep in peace. I am watching over you to keep you safe.
