Experiencing greater joy than abundant harvests and new wine

If we have abundant harvests of grain (or financial success) along with new wine (enough drink to satiate our thirst for companionship), then it seems we have truly arrived. Amazingly, the Lord gives us greater joy than this type of worldly security! When we simply trust Him, our joy is greater than ever. He gives us safety from things outside of our control. He allows us to sleep well at night (not worrying about scoundrels or trouble makers). He is a fortress around our lives for good. – Teresa

Psalm 4: 6-8 (NLT)

6 ‘Many people say, “Who will show us better times?”

    Let your face smile on us, Lord.

7 You have given me greater joy

    than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.

8 In peace I will lie down and sleep,

    for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.’
