Psalm 56:1 “Be merciful to me “
David wrote this psalm where philistines had captured him in Gath. David wrote this when he was literally facing death. No hope to escape. When we feel inadequate and helpless, let us pray like David.
Fear to Trust: Psalm 56:3 “When I am afraid, I will trust in you.” When David was scared of his situation, he did not murmur nor did he grumble, David increased his trust in the Lord.
Attack to Freedom: Psalm 56:9 “Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help.” By this I will know that God is for me. David knew when he prays Lord will surely listen and help. When an attack comes from the evil one, speak to our Heavenly Father surely help will come.
Problems to Praise: Psalm 56:12 “I am under vows to you, O God; I will present my thank offerings to you.” When problems came , David took decision to praise the Lord always. Make a vow that in every situation I will praise God.
Death to deliverance: Psalm 56:13 “For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling” David was delivered from death we know it, but David confessed it even before deliverance actually happened. Let us see the deliverance in the eyes of faith and confess what we do not see with our eyes.
Prayer: Psalm 56:4 “In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?” David claimed the promises of God, believing the word lead to praises, yes Lord I am praying the same prayer like David. Amen.
