Discussion for Psalms 4:8

  • AMEN JAY for verse 8
    we have to make dwelling a place of GOD where HE will always be our guard,becouse if not who ever guard us guards in vain
  • I Love this Psalms so much, it makes me think about how I sleep at night, by the grace of God. When the Lord took my son home to be with him, I thought I would never sleep at night but when I lock my doors at night, I ask the Lord to watch over me, and send a kiss and hug to my son. I sleep like a baby. Thank You Father in the name of Jesus Christ.
