Psalms 56 – In God We Trust!

It’s a simple thought repeated twice in this Psalm.

Note too how each time this phrase is joined with….our praise for his word.
Perhaps it is a necessary aspect which is lost to people today. Ask yourself can you trust God without first praising/trusting his very word…which we have in the Bible?

In God I Trust

Psa 56:1  To the chief Musician upon Jonathelemrechokim, Michtam of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.

Psa 56:2  Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.

Psa 56:3  What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

Psa 56:4  In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

Psa 56:5  Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.

Psa 56:6  They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

Psa 56:7  Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.

Psa 56:8  Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

Psa 56:9  When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

Psa 56:10  In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.

Psa 56:11  In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

Psa 56:12  Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.

Psa 56:13  For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
