MENTORING CORNER/STUDY GUIDE:

PSALM 4 STUDY, 05.03.20

 

*SINCE THIS IS MUCH ALONG THE SAME LINES AS PSALM 3, and THERE MAY BE SOME OVERLAPS, THIS STUDY GUIDE WILL LIKELY BE LESS CHALLENGING.

    1. What is the single most important underlying theme of this Psalm?
    2. While King David, in v.2 would have been referring to the humiliation of the ongoing failures in relationships with his own sons, which turned his glory to shame, what might it be in your life that causes you to feel similarly? Who has let you down? And what do you need to do with that situation?
    3. In what ways do you yourself sometimes focus on worthlessness/worthless things, & waste time looking for ways to rationalize/justify things you do/don’t do?
    4. What situations in life do you either bear the brunt of falsehoods (false accusations), or become involved in making false accusations?
    5. Connect the dots between God hearing you when you call, and being set apart for Him. What is each one hinged to/dependent upon?
    6. In order to not sin while being angry, what do you need to do? What must you not do?
    7. What is it like for you to meditate in stillness?
    8. In what way(s) is righteousness a sacrifice for you?
    9. Assess your own ability to put your trust in the Lord.
    10. How easily influenced are you (v.6) by those around you? What effect does a fiery dart/arrow of doubt have on you?
    11. After a gruelling scenario as the Psalmist has undergone, he is able to find peace and contentment in the Lord’s presence. In what ways can you relate to that experience?
