“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you” (Psalm 56:3, ESV). Psalm 56 brings us again a hymn-prayer of David in time of danger. The psalmist is beset by foes, who seem to have, for the moment, overcome him (vv.1-2). But his response is a confident reliance on God. Who can harm the man protected by the Almighty (v.4)? The Lord is the great deliverer, and His faithful people respond with praise (vv.12-13).
Where do you turn when you are afraid? Meet your fears with faith. No difficulty is too great for God’s wisdom, no enemy a challenge to His power. Trust in the Lord as you go through your days, and keep your hope in Him.
