Psalm 4:3-8
3But know that the Lord has set apart for Himself [and given distinction to] him who is godly [the man of loving-kindness]. The Lord listens and heeds when I call to Him. 4Be angry and sin not; commune with your own hearts upon your beds and be silent (sorry for the things you say in your hearts). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! 5Offer just and right sacrifices; trust (lean on and be confident) in the Lord. 6Many say, Oh, that we might see some good! Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord. 7You have put more joy and rejoicing in my heart than [they know] when their wheat and new wine have yielded abundantly. 8In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for You, Lord, alone make me dwell in safety and confident trust.

Psalm 5:1-3
1Listen to my words, O Lord, give heed to my sighing and groaning. 2Hear the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to You do I pray. 3In the morning You hear my voice, O Lord; in the morning I prepare [a prayer, a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait [for You to speak to my heart].

Psalm 9:1-2
1I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will show forth (recount and tell aloud) all Your marvelous works and wonderful deeds! 2I will rejoice in You and be in high spirits; I will sing praise to Your Name, O Most High!

Psalm 16:5-9
5The Lord is my chosen and assigned portion, my cup; You hold and maintain my lot. 6The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; yes, I have a good heritage. 7I will bless the Lord, Who has given me counsel; yes, my heart instructs me in the night seasons. 8I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9Therefore my heart is glad and my glory [my inner self] rejoices; my body too shall rest and confidently dwell in safety,

Psalm 13:5-6
5But I have trusted, leaned on, and been confident in Your mercy and loving-kindness; my heart shall rejoice and be in high spirits in Your salvation. 6I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me.

The Book of Psalms is a collection of songs, poems, and prayers written by men who had relationship with God.

These men had learned that they didn’t have to try to appear righteous with God when they sang or prayed. They were well aware that He knew their thoughts, so they knew they could not deceive Him with “religious talk.” They didn’t even try. [Or, if they did, those psalms were not recorded in the Bible!]

In today’s vocabulary, we can say the psalmists were “real” with God.

When the psalmists took their eyes off their circumstances and focused their attention on the nature and character of God, they began to praise Him and, soon after, to worship Him for Who He is.

In the next few days, we’ll look at psalms on the topic of human hearts, and learn from the psalmists how to be “real” with God.

Ephesians 1:2
2May grace (God’s unmerited favor) and spiritual peace [which means peace with God and harmony, unity, and undisturbedness] be yours from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
