PostSubject: Psalm 4 (31/10/08)   Sat Nov 01, 2008 8:32 am

verse 4 In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent.

i'm very familiar with this verse... but i also know very well that i'm not doing this. 1 Corinthians 13:5 says, Love.... keeps no record of wrongs. i have to admit that i'm very good in remembering people's past trespasses against me, even after forgiving them. When something strikes a chord in my brain, i'll immediately recall the hurts that i had before and i re-dislike or re-hate the person whom i have long forgiven. in my anger, many of you would have known that i usually say out loud some vulgar phrases.

verse 8 i will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.

This became Enoch's favourite verse while we were in JS. Later this year, the Sunday School slumber camp in Sentul also used this verse. So it kind of resonates when i read this again. even so, sleeping in peace... that's the thing... what does that mean? are you in peace with Him? do you have peace with one another? i guess i won't have good sleeps anymore if i continue to dwell in the bitterness of sins of others in the past.

Psalm4:4-5

In your anger do not sin;
when you are on your bed'
search your hearts and be silent

Offer right sacrifices
and trust in the Lord.

i'm not sure whether im lookin at tis 2 verse correctly..to me the anger here could b referin 2 negative emotions such as anger itself,sadness,grief,depression,toubled and etc..V4 says to find a quiet place of rest which is represented by d bed n to reflect upom own heart.when we r in a bad situation,r we fast 2 point finger at others n push al d blame 2 others?i shud turn 2 God instead of lookin 4 comfort through sum other ways which may b sinful in His eyes.

well,basically i tink we'll most probably be talking bout verse 4" In your anger do not sin."Since I can ever remember the verse in Eph 4:26 has stuck with me." In your anger do not sin.Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold." This might seem hard but when I was young I had a very very very very short temper.dunno y but i jz had it.The smallest of insult or sarcasm would coz me to send a punch flying to your face.dis usually let to fights not oni in school but at home.hehe.kinda samseng wasn't I.hehe.

I might have shared dis in Js.anyway,each time we had a fight at home my dad would call dose involved to hug n kiss each other after saying sorry.haha.of coz dis would emberass us n make us smile n well u noe.haha.but this has helped me in many ways.for example, it tot me to always say sorry no matter we were in da rong or right.for both of us had to say sorry to each other.it also tot me dat saying sorry means dat the conflict is settled and we go back to hating or not being alrite wif each other but its actually forgiving one another and our relationship after dat muz improve.

another thing i would like to share is how i came across this wonderful verse dat has bin my cooling agent in so many occasions.if i remember correctly i had this book which was a kids book.it was a book dat had 365 bible stories in it form de old to de new testament.an 1 of de stories was about Joshua stopping time.Joshua 10:13 " so the sun stood still and the moon stopped..."after reading dat story i sort of came across Eph 4:26.and now each time i got angry i would always remember dis verse(Eph 4:26).

P.S: this doesn't mean dat i dun get angry ya.i do.we all do.its jz dat i dun show it n dun worry if u mite haf offended me ovr small stuff.all i need is to go to sleep n i'l forget bout my anger wen i wake up.I'm serious.haha.
