Psalm 56 is for you today.
For the one struggling with fear.
The one doing battle with her own thoughts.
The one in a season of tears.
The one the enemy is prowling around.
The one who is fearful of the opinion of man.
Psalm 56 is for you.
Read this portion from the Passion Translation and take heart! Repeat this verse with me today, “With God on my side I will not be afraid of what comes.” (verse 11)
“But in the day that I’m afraid, I lay all my fears before you and trust in you with all my heart. What harm could a man bring to me? With God on my side I will not be afraid of what comes. The roaring praises of God fill my heart, and I will always triumph as I trust his promises.
“You’ve kept track of all my wandering and my weeping. You’ve stored my many tears in your bottle—not one will be lost. For they are all recorded in your book of remembrance. The very moment I call to you for a father’s help the tide of battle turns and my enemies flee. This one thing I know: God is on my side! I trust in the Lord. And I praise him! I trust in the Word of God. And I praise him! What harm could man do to me? With God on my side I will not be afraid of what comes. My heart overflows with praise to God and for his promises. I will always trust in him.”
