“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.
