Psalm 4:3 NASB “But know that the LORD has set apart the godly man for himself; The LORD hears when I call to him”
These are simple truths. Firstly the LORD sets apart the righteous. The righteous don’t set themselves apart. They are chosen and appointed. They are set aside for himself, for LORD AND LORD ALONE. The godly man is not some temp, calling in for a season. Farmed out to other masters as and when the need arises. The LORD hears when I call him. He is not some distant benefactor, or master who sends out decrees, he has compassion and takes interest in his people. Neither is he powerless like the gods of men. A mute symbol of fertility or possession, our LORD has power and authority to work. Remembering and digesting the simplest truths such as these can encourage, empower and sustain a believer.
